CROCHET OUTSOLES

Crochet soles for any foot size and foot-shape.
Infant- to giant-feet!

PROTECT YOUR NEW SLIPPERS and SOCKS!

  • The soles protect the slippers, make them warmer, sturdier, and extend their life-time.
  • Use the crochet-soles as out- and/or insoles.
  • For heavier and sturdier outsoles, work two soles together into one sole.
  • Work crochet-slippers around top of the sole-edge.
  • Turn Crochet outsoles into soles for street wear:
  • Work the soles in hemp-twine.
  • Apply treatment to the bottom.

OPTION 1: The ‘Any-size method’ is based on a template of your foot-shape.
OPTION 2: Templates for 4 standard foot-sizes included in pattern.
* Full stitch-diagram for each size.
