CROCHET SOLES + Sole-treatment - Tailored Method for how to Turn home slippers into street shoes
MY METHOD FOR HOW MAKE TAILORED CROCHET SOLES, INSOLES, AND HOW TO TURN CROCHET SLIPPERS INTO STREET SHOES!
This is my ultimate crochet sole! Suitable for any foot-size and shoe-project. It’s additional for your slippers.
NOTE: Please see my E-BOOKS in the store, for 2in1- patterns; Slipper-patterns included the Crochet-Sole Pattern/Tutorial.
I don’t know about you, but I really dislike making crochet soles! That’s why I end up designing one-piece slippers.
But there is after all more options and advantages with a sole. The soles starting in the middle, working in rounds, are nice, but they never seem to come out right, ending up too long, or too wide, or the opposite, or all above!
So for me this method is the solution. Very simple maths, and adjustable for any size, yarn, and gauge!
Read all about my two sole-solutions in my blog-issue:
You need basic crochet skills only, and knowledge of how to
decrease and increase.
Please note: This is not a pattern with precise instruction from start to finish, from row to row, for all imaginable sizes. It’s a method for how to work soles in any size! Please contact me if you find the method difficult to understand!
Tutorial for the sole treatment is included in the pattern!
The treatment protects the soles against dirt, dust, wear and tear. It’s just wonderful to walk on, AND turns your crochet-slippers into street-shoes!
Even as the soles can be made real thick, they will still be quite soft, so I mostly use this method for home-shoes.

MATERIALS FOR SOLES:
Triple strand Light/Sport, or another heavy craft weight yarn. Cotton is great, or fibers like jute, bast, flax or hemp.
European metric 3-4 mm (US D/3-G/6), or any size that suits your yarn.
It’s better to under-size the hook than the opposite, to achieve a firm and sturdy sole.
Not important for this project.
US - American Crochet Terms. Conversion charts also for BE terms.
