This is the method I use as outsoles for indoor wear.
Perfect for one-piece slippers and socks.

• The soles protect your slippers, and make them warmer, sturdier, and extend their life-time.
• It looks nice, giving a professional touch to your creations.
• Soles made of hemp or jute can be used for street wear!
• Option: Work slippers directly around the sole’s edge.

  • For me it’s important to have left/right foot-shape on outsoles, an oval is not good enough! These soles are easy to make for anyone that can decrease and increase in single crochet.

  • In order to make the soles as strong, sturdy and solid as possible, they are made in hemp-twine. See material-list below for other suggestions.

The soles are based on my method for Any size customized crochet Soles, which in addition to the soles in this pattern, also include tutorials for:

  • How to join soles to slippers.
  • How to make insoles.
  • How to protect the crochet-soles.
  • How to turn slippers into street-shoes.
  • How to use a foot-template for customized soles.

For 1 more Euro, you can have the above information + instructions for the 4 standard-sizes!
All included in Any size customized crochet Soles

If you are looking for heavier soles, more suitable for street-wear, I recommend the Cord-Sole method.
