Important Note About The Supply List for this Easy Crochet Doll Sandals Free Pattern:
We will not be utilizing all of the supplies listed in the supplies list this week. We will be using them to complete our crochet doll clothing and accessories that we will crochet for our amigurumi doll over the coming weeks.
This is not an exhaustive list of all of the supplies we will need. This is everything we will need for Weeks 12 – 20 of the 2023 Amigurumi Advent Calendar Crochet Along.
I had been planning these doll sandals for a long time. I made a few different variations before I came up with a pair that not only just looked like sandals, but were easy for kids to get on and off.
Thanks to my own little girl for patiently trying on various little doll shoes onto her doll so I could see whether the prototype I had come up with would be easy to place on the doll. Finally, we decided that the flip-flop sandal was the easiest to put on the doll and she swiped my first (and second) pair for her own dolls.
How to Crochet A Doll Sandal:
We create these amigurumi doll sandals by creating an oval base made of single crochet stitches to act as the sole of our sandal. Then we will switch to working in turned rows to crochet the strap that will go over the foot and hold the sandal onto the foot.
This lovely pattern is only 7 rounds long and stitch placement is important. Make sure that you’re taking the time to count your stitches at the end of every round to make sure you have the correct number of stitches in your round before moving on.
A Note About The Fit Of These Amigurumi Toy Sandals
These sandals will be a bit snug to put onto the doll at first. They were designed that way to help the sandals stay on the doll’s foot. My daughter gets so frustrated when her doll’s shoes immediately fall off its feet so I took that into account when designing this pattern.
After some use, the strap will relax slightly, making them even easier to go on but they should still remain on the foot. You wouldn’t think that this much thought could go into something this small!

- Invisible Finish/Join: FO leaving a long tail. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle. Skip a stitch and place the tapestry needle through the top of the next stitch from front to back and pull through. Place tip of needle into top of the last ST worked under the back loop of the stitch and pull through to the back of the work. Weave in the end. Learn how to do this with my invisible finish/join tutorial.

- To fit Advent Adam & Addy dolls – 10” tall dolls
- Clothing: 4 sts across x 6 rows = 1” square
- These clothing and accessory patterns are designed to fit my Advent Adam and Addy dolls. Gauge is important for ensuring that your doll clothes fit your doll appropriately. If you don’t plan to match gauge, ensure that you maintain a consistent tension throughout each project. Using the same yarn line and hook throughout each project can also assist with minimizing gauge/tension changes.
- For a cleaner SCDEC on pieces worked in continuous rounds, do your SCDEC under the front loops only of each ST rather than under both loops. This is often referred to as an invisible decrease. Check out my invisible decrease tutorial on to see it done.
- For pieces worked in turned rows, use a normal SCDEC stitch instead of the invisible decrease.
- Colour changes are done using the last YO of the previous stitch (except where otherwise indicated).
