How to Crochet Over Flip Flops

Why would you want to crochet over flip flops? Well you like to crochet for one, and the desire to cover everything in sight with crochet is strong in you!

No? Well besides that, it’s a good way to jazz up an old pair of flip flops that have become boring to you, and it’s a great way to take a cheap pair of flip flops and make them look upscale and unique for just a few extra dollars.

The pair I used were bought to wear to a wedding reception last year, when I was 7 months pregnant and my feet were swollen to practically twice their size. The shimmery silver looked fabulous with my maternity bridesmaid dress, but are a little out of place with my new casual, stay-at-home-mommy wardrobe. I elected to crochet over them as a way to both tone them down and dress them up.


  • 1 pair of old or cheap flip flops
  • Yarn or crochet cotton of choice (we used size 3 crochet cotton)
  • Crochet hook sized to fit the crochet medium (we used a 2.75mm steel hook)
