Crocheted Pink and Grey Plarn Sandals

Posted on July 1, 2014

Here is my finished pair of pink and grey crocheted plarn sandals that I have been working on for months. This truly has been a labor of love and recycled craft challenge to get these completed. I posted my progress with this plastic bag project over the last several months. I crocheted the plarn sandal soles and improved on the pattern I used in the past for making recycled plastic sandal slippers.

I present the free crochet pattern for these recycled plastic sandals below. These can be used at the beach, around the house and garden, or even as shower sandals for college students. For larger or smaller sizes, just add more or reduce the stitches to your beginning chain and crochet the tops wider too as needed.


Pink and Grey Plarn Sandals Crochet Pattern

Materials needed:
One ball of plastic bag yarn “Plarn” cut 1 inch wide – Approx. 30 Grey plastic grocery bags and 10 Pink plastic bags

Here is my picture tutorial link showing how to make yarn from recycled plastic bags.

Hook: J (6 mm) metal crochet hook

Description:
Recycled Plastic Bag Sandals Women Size 9 to 9-1/2 M

Directions:
Make 2 soles for each sandal.

Rnd 1
With grey plastic bag yarn (plarn) Ch 21.

Sc in 2nd ch from hook in each st down one side until the last 2 sts, work 2 Sc in the last two sts of side and work 3 Sc in the end loop (by the knot before going around to the other side.)

Continue around the corner and down the back side of chain, work 2 Sc in the next 2 sts, then work a Sc in each chain st down to the end st. Work 3 Sc in the very end stitch loop to finish the round 1.

Continue working in the round without joining unless advised to do so.

Rnd 2
Work 2 Sc in the next 3 sts, work a Sc in ea st down to the last 3 sts of first side, then work 2 Sc in the each of the last 3 sts of this side. Work Sc in very end st, and then continuing around the other side of the sole, work 2 Sc in the next 3 sts. Sc in each st down to the last 3 sts of the side. Work 2 Sc in each of the last 3 sts on side of sole.

Rnd 3
Work Sc in end st, ( mark top center of toe here with marker), work 2 Sc in the next 3 sts on side of sole as you continue around curve. Sc in each st down to the last 4 sts before end. Work 2 Sc in the last 4 sts of curve and in the next 4 sts on the other side of curve. (Basically you want to work 2 Sc in the 8 sts around the heel of the sandal.) Sc then in each st down to the other end, work 2 Sc in the last 4 sts of curve on last side of round.

Rnd 4
Continue around the curve by working 2 Sc in the next 4 sts of toe. (Again you will have worked 2 Sc in each of the 8 stitches around the toe curve area.) Now Sc in each st down and around the other curve of sole and back up towards the toe. Stop at 14 sts before the top of the toe or about 3-1/4 inches from the toe top.
