Welcome to my crochet flip flops pattern. The finished flip flops are going to look like this. I was asked if I could design some appliques for a beach scene so this is the first of the series, I’ll have a beach umbrella and chair to follow soon.
There’s also a video tutorial for this pattern available on my YouTube channel at Crochet Flip Flops Tutorial.
This pattern will be using US terminology. If you would like to view the UK version go to Crochet Flip Flops Pattern (UK Version).
