This day has arrived.
The day I am publishing my very own original crochet pattern. AlhamduLillah!
I crocheted this pair for my nephew who I adore very much. I am very proud to say that I am going to gift him something original. Something specifically designed for him. In sha Allah.
Well, let’s just dive into it.
What I used:
3 mm Crochet Hook. Beige color yarn- Brand, Robin Double Knit. Pink color yarn- Brand, Lana Para. Both are 100% acrylic.
3.5 inch sole.
Hdc=Half double crochet
Dc2tog= double crochet two together.
Sl st=Slip Stitch
Row 1: Ch 13. 2dc in the second chain from the hook. Dc in the next five chains. Hdc in the next 3 chains. Sc in the next 2 chains. 6hdc in the last chain.
Opposite side of the chain: Sc in the next 2 chain. Hdc in the next 3 chains. Dc in the next 5 chains. 4 dc in the last chain. Slip stitch into the 1st double crochet.
Row 2: 2dc in each of the next 3 stitches. Dc in the next 8 stitches. 2hdc in each of the next 6 stitches. Dc in the next 11 stitches. 2dc in each of the next 3 stitches. Slip stitch in the 1st double crochet to join. (42 sts)
Row 3: Ch 1. Dc in the same stitch as ch1. Dc all around in all stitches . Slip stitch into the 1st double crochet to join.
Row 4: Ch 1. Dc in the same stitch. Dc in the next 2 stitches. One dc2tog. Dc in next 10 stiches. One dc2tog. Dc in next 6 stitches. One dc2tog. Dc in next 10 stitches. One dc2tog. Dc in next 6 stitches. Sl st in the 1st dc to join.
Row 5: Ch1. Hdc into the same st. Hdc in all the sts all around. Sl st to join. Fasten off.
Row 1: Ch10. Hdc from the second ch from the hook. Hdc in all the following chains. Turn.
Row 2: Ch1. Hdc in all sts. Turn.
Row 3: Ch1. Hdc in all sts. Turn.
Row 4: Ch1. Skip first st. (along with the Ch1). Hdc in all next sts. Turn.
Row 5: Ch1. Skip first st. (along with the Ch1). hdc in all next sts. Turn.
Row 6: Ch1. Skip first st.(along with the Ch1). hdc in all next sts. Don’t fasten off.
At this point, hdc all around the edges of the tongue until you reach the point where you started. Slip stitch into the 1st hdc. Fasten off.
Now turn your work inside out so that the right side of the upper is facing towards you. Align your tongue (again the right side facing toward you) with the front of the upper. Count the front 12 stitches of the tongue. Count the front 12 stitches of the upper. Align the 12 stitches of both the parts. Insert your hook in the first stitches of both the tongue and the upper. Put your pink yarn over the hook and pull through both the stitches. Then ch1 to secure the stitch.
Insert your hook in the second stitches the same way. Pull the yarn through both stitches and single crochet normally.
Do this throughout one side of the tongue. When the tongue ends, sc normally throughout the heel of the shoes where there is only one stitch. Then when you reach the tongue again, sc through both the stitches of the tongue and the upper. Sl st into the 1st sc. Fasten off.
Now weave in all your yarn.
Leave a long tail while making the loop. Ch11. Dc in the second ch from the hook. Dc in the next 8 sts. 6 dc in the last st.
Opposite side: Dc in all sts. Ch 5. Sl st into the first dc. Fasten off.
Insert the long tail into a yarn needle and sew it to the pink border you single crocheted along the tongue. Weave in the yarn and fasten off. Please be careful with the sides. It will be sewn on a different side on each shoe.
Now sew a button of your choice and…… there you go! You are done! I hope this pattern benefited you.
