Flip-Flop Keychain

Last week I mentioned the flip-flop keychain that I just had to make. Yeah, those got done sooner rather than later...


Aren't they just the cutest things? From this picture you can't really tell scale. Maybe from this one...


They're small. Key sized.

Yes, I made two. After finishing the first one...


...(in orange, naturally), I needed to make another right away.


I mean, once I got the hang of it, they were kind of fun.

And by "get the hang of it", there were some transcription problems. The pattern is actually a video. In Italian. But someone kindly captioned it in English.

I don't work well having to refer back to a video. I need the instructions printed on paper. So, I wrote out the instructions. However, I misinterpreted the toe part of the sole, and that made for some mistakes early on.

Once I found that mistake, I was good to go.


And if anyone would like me to make them one, I will sell these in your choice of colors (depending on if I can get the crochet thread in that color). I'm not sure of price yet, though.

If you crochet, here's the video (in case you're looking for a new project).

    1. If one does it in a thicker yarn, it could totally be a baby slipper ;)

  2. Those are rather cool! Good thing there were captions to that video, but I think you would've figured it out anyway.

    1. Things like numbers (how many stitches) and specific stitches would get lost. Videos tend to gloss over the "easy bits" that I wouldn't understand in Italian.

  5. How neat. Also impressive that you could make it at all considering it was in Italian, even with the subtitles. Good going :)

    1. The subtitles were key. They wrote out the pattern in English there.

  7. They are adorable. I like instructions printed out too. I'm a linear person.

    1. It's easier to have instructions sitting next to me. Glad to know I'm not alone.

  9. It's funny after you mentioned this pattern, I was over on Pinterest and a pin for this pattern popped up. I think Pinterest is stalking me. >.>

    1. Pinterest is where I found it. It's making the rounds. Not surprising it'd pop up in your feed, too.
