For the Ch going over the toe, connect to one Ch 7 corner and Ch 20-30 depending on toe size.  You know your toes better than me, ;).  Sc again into the Ch 7 corner and finish off.
For the straps, in each of the last two Ch 7 corners Ch 150-200 depending on preference, finish off.
For each area finished off you can add a drop of clear nail polish to make the knots more secure.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask, this is my first pattern so I hope it makes sense.  A drawn pattern is included for reference if you have trouble.

  1. Love it. Thank you for sharing

  2. Very cute,my nieces will love them.Thank you for sharing.

  3. this idea and look is so unique it will be a hit for a long time. thank you for sharing the pattern and kudos for the presentation.

  4. Can you tell me what colors you used in the examples as in the numbers?

    1. I will have to look as I don't remember. We are in the middle of a move, so it might take me a bit, even though responding took forever. I've been swamped. I will try to find out though.

  5. I have a question, it's probably just me and can't figure it out. I love your design. On Row 2 after you chain 3, and Sc in top of next Trc & it says to repeat across each Trc with 3 Sc in between. ok I tried to do that and mine doesn't look the same as yours. I am confused on where you repeat across each Trc with 3 sc in between. If you could reply and help me that would be awesome. I love your pattern and really want to make these.

    1. I'm actually not sure where you might be having the issue. I tried to look and figure it out, but I would probably have to see a picture to see where you might be missing it, or if I just wrote the instructions wrong. So sorry

  6. This pattern is awesome! And my kiddos love it! Good job on explaining the pattern. Thank you for sharing!
