Stitches – very basic: ch, sl st, sc, dc.
Ch 5 and join to make a ring
Rnd 1: sc5 in ring
Rnd 2: sc2 in all stitches (10)
Rnd 3: repeat rnd 2 (20)
Rnd 4: sc1 in all st. (20)
Cut yarn, tie a knot and weave the tail.
Insert white yarn into a st. (I don’t pay attention to insert new color where I ended the floral disc of the daisy)
Row 1: ch8
Row 2: starting from 2nd ch from hook, work the following sc1, hdc1, dc3, hdc1, sc1, sl st.
Skip one, sl st in next stitch and repeat petal pattern until the end. There should be 10 petals.
Cut yarn, tie a knot and weave the tail. Make another one.
Ch 74. That’s 70 for the tie and 4 for the leaf.
(*if you want to tie your sandals around the ankle once or twice, then consider making a longer tie by increasing the count up to 90-100 sts.)
Next, dc 3 in the 4th st from hook. Ch4, turn work and dc 3in the first st of the chain you just made. Repeat this leaf pattern to make 5 such leaves.
Pin the daisy and sew it on. I set it at the end of the base, on the last leaves. You can put it wherever you want if you are into a different look.
