Hello again! Last night, while I was winding down and finishing up on a pattern, I found a comment someone left on my Kayla Barefoot Sandals pattern. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m going to be able to help them figure out what wasn’t working when they worked it up, but I decided to post a blog update that will hopefully help. Not to mention, it goes with my current decision to update some old patterns to make sure they work and the pictures are nice. Recently I updated the Avery Hat pattern and it’s on sale for $1.99 until July 23rd (no coupon code needed) and also the Willow Sack Hat pattern, which is a free pattern you can get here.
Anyway, on to the Kayla Barefoot sandals. I’ve changed the wording on the pattern. Previously, I had hdc2tog/ dc2tog used in the pattern but I’ve replaced them with a hdc cluster or dc cluster- because in the pattern the stitch is not a decrease stitch, it was to add some space but not an extra stitch. I also wanted to add new photos so that hopefully some of the stitches make more sense. I hope you enjoy it and it works out for you. If you have any comments or questions, please let me know.

If you appreciate my weekly patterns, please consider purchasing the Kayla Barefoot Sandals pdf in my Ravelry shop for $.50 to help me bring more patterns to my blog.

Fasten off, weave in ends.

Finishing: Ch 80 (adding the picots if you wish), sc into the second from the beginning sc from row 7, sc into the first sc, ch 10, sc into original ch 8 ring, ch 10, sc into the end sc of row , sc into next st, ch 80. Fasten off. Do this for both sandals. For the original straps I crocheted a picot after every 10 chs (I think it gives it a bit of personality).

There we go! I hope these images help and make sense. Please let me know in the comments if you have any problems or there are parts of the pattern that need further clarification. If you do make a pair the Kayla Barefoot Sandals of your very own, please upload the photos to Ravelry so I can see as well.

Take care!
