It kind of resembles a spider in the center, but I couldn’t call them “spider lace”, because that’s entirely something else in crochet. But spiders have eight legs, and arachnids have eight legs, thus the name.

This is an easy pattern; starting with the toe loop, you will work upward toward the ankle. The straps are worked in one piece across the top, creating the final row.

I’ve included photos to help you along the way.
