Gauge is not significant to this project.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Note: If piece is too long for foot skip Row 8 by working sl st to center of second ch sp on Row 7, then working work Row 9.

String button onto yarn, push back until ready to use.

Barefoot Sandal Reviewed by alexandria.hargrave on 2015-05-06 *****
I have made several for friends and family. I like the ankle band better than tie straps. Also I have been using silver or gold bells which make wearing them even more fun.
They look so very cute and pretty in almost any color, but I like doing them in variegated yarns best.
