Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic Crochet and craft skills

Pattern Description:

Allow me to introduce The Cord Sole!

Tailored Method suitable for any foot-size, foot-shape and shoe-project.

You only need basic crochet- and craft-skills to make these soles.
VERY detailed step-by-step instructions with pics!
No sole-hole-punching! No seaming! Note that sealant/glue is involved in the creating of this sole.

Attaching out- and insoles to basic crochet- or knit slippers, has several advantages.
They protect your slippers against wear and tear, makes them sturdy and comfortable to walk and wear, it looks nice, and not least;
It turns your home slippers into street shoes!

The simple design of Espadrillas, is my great inspiration designing crochet slippers.
Espadrillas are originally simple handmade canvas shoes with rope-soles, produced in Spain for hundreds of years (And other places world-wide, only named differently).

This sole is my final solution in order to turn crochet slippers into street shoes!
With stubborn obsession, I have worked out a method for how to make attachable cord-soles for finished crochet (or knit-) slippers.
The method is adaptable for ANY foot-shape and -size.
You can also continue to crochet a shoe on top of the sole.

Handmade insoles will add extra comfort and softness, and keep the slippers in shape.
Personalize the soles with matching fabric, .... and labels! A very good gift-idea!
