Crocheted & Frogged: Two Button Ballet Flats





IMAG0300.jpg


Smitten by the crochet bug, I decided to give the Two Button Ballet Flats (slippers) a whirl.  Seen here crocheted in Ella Rae Classic (wool), Aquamarine color with a 4.50mm crochet hook.  I struggled in the beginning a tad.  But then I messaged the designer who assured me that I was on the right track.

Here's where I went wrong.  According to the pattern chart, you're supposed to crochet 9" when you get to the sole (for my shoe size).  Unfortunately, I think that meant from tip of toe to heel and I crocheted from beg of sole to heel - so the slipper is WAY too big!

So although I am not finishing this slipper because I made a boo-boo on the size, I DID learn a lot from crocheting it!  I learned dc2tog, sc2tog, and basically what are crocheted short rows for the heel.  The straps are just tacked to the sides in the pic so you can get a feel for what the slipper should look like.  According to pattern, you'd sew a button on either side and loop the straps around the buttons.

A very cute project! I hope to make a pair that fit me in the near future.
