Crochet Flip Flops Tutorial with Flower Pattern

Dress up your flip flops with this quick and easy crochet flip flops tutorial.  All you need is a pair of plain flip flops, some leftover yarn from your scrap pile, and your hook … okay, and maybe a tapestry needle, too!

 Crochet Flip Flops Tutorial with Flower Pattern

Here’s what you need:

  • a pair of inexpensive flip flops
  • worsted weight yarn
  • H hook
  • tapestry needle
To start, with the outer part of the flip flop facing you, wrap the yarn around the band of the flip flop with the tail end facing you and underneath the skein end, forming a loop (a).  Insert your hook through the loop (b) and pull the yarn through (c).

To begin crocheting around the band of the flip flop, insert your hook under the band, pull the yarn to the front and up to the top of the band, yarn over and pull through both loops (a). Continue crocheting across band, working over the tail as you go (b).

When you reach the center, simply start again on the other side of the toe (a). Continue crocheting along other side until you reach the end of the band (b).  Fasten off and weave in end (c).

    What a great idea. I imagine having yarn against your skin is much less sticky than the plastic, plus it looks pretty.

  9. Margo July 11, 2012 at 11:14 am #

    So cute!

    These are so cute, Kara!!! I really have to learn to crochet. In Australia, we call flip flops, thongs…

  26. patchcath July 23, 2012 at 4:35 am #

    Elles sont carrément craquantes, tes tonks!!
    très joiles, personnalisées à souhait!
    et je suis persuadée que le fil à crocheter est bien plus doux pour les pieds que le plastique souvent ‘cuisant”
    merci de nous montrer tous ces détails!!

  27. Sara @ My Merry Messy Life July 25, 2012 at 12:24 am #

    What a great idea! I had never thought to crochet onto flip flops like this. Very creative and a great photo tutorial. Excellent job! Thanks for linking up at Hookin On Hump Day!

    hice las sandalias…la diadema y un adorno en pulsera a mi sobrina nieta…DIOS BENDICE A ESTAS PERSONAS Q COMPARTE SUS TRABAJOS CON AMOR…SI LA AYUDA DE ELLAS …NUNCA PODRIA YO APRENDER….

  31. Regina Wade March 7, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

    This is a great idea! Crocheting around the strap could also make it easier to attach another strap to go around the heel–my 4 year old’s flip-flops NEVER stay on. 🙂

  32. Gail July 8, 2013 at 2:27 pm #

    I like this idea, however yarn gets sort of out of shape if you happened to get these wet. I have used nylon cord, found at any craft store by the yarn, I did mine in varigated colors, turned out great, even got a couple of requests for them.

    • Kara July 9, 2013 at 10:59 am #

      The nylon cord sounds like a great idea!

  33. Cynthia Banessa April 11, 2014 at 5:06 pm #

    Super cute…thanks for sharing!

    • Kara April 11, 2014 at 10:31 pm #

      My pleasure, Cynthia!

  34. Michelle April 29, 2014 at 1:34 pm #

    Thank you so much for sharing. I have 3 of those cheap FF and they always hurt me. I almost threw them away. Now I have an easy way to improve them. Nice job.

  38. Donna May 19, 2015 at 9:51 pm #

    Just tried these with some flips that irritated my feet. They are not only cute, but very comfy now! Plan to do this to all my flips!

  39. Lorraine Pounds June 26, 2016 at 6:27 am #

    #BestIdeaEver I think this is going to work really good for me. In the past I have not been able to wear flip flops, because I have tender skin and, the rubber always would leave in between my toes raw. So this will solve that problem and, I’ll be able to wear flip flops again! Thanks!
