Not Granny’s Gladiator Barefoot Sandals

I’m having so much fun creating my Not Granny’s series and I sure hope you are also enjoying it. Not Granny’s Gladiator Barefoot Sandals are obviously not an ordinary barefoot sandal. They are a statement that requires restating. (See what I did there?) Honestly, I don’t know what to say about these glorious Gladiator Barefoot Sandals, except that you may feel the need to run out and get some thread right away or they may just change your life. (Kinda kidding.)

There are so many possibilities with granny squares. To me, they seem endless! If you can make a granny square, you can certainly make these. Imagine solid white for a wedding and the bridesmaids in different colors. Ah, the splendor! Add this to your Ravelry queue or favorite

What do you think? What colors will you use?

Not Granny's Bangle Bracelet | Free Tutorial by Celina Lane, SimplyCollectibleCrochet.comThe Not Granny’s Gladiator (and Sassy) Barefoot Sandals are made strictly from granny squares. You may use ribbon to lace around the back as I did or crochet a long chain.


Aunt Lydia’s Size 10 Crochet Thread
3/8″ Organza Ribbon
Steel Hook Size 7/ 1.5mm
Needle the appropriate size for this thread

Special instructions:

Read all instructions before beginning. Each row can be a new color. Work with any colors of your choice. For ease, fasten off, and break the thread after every row. You may start a new round in any corner; mixing it up makes it look even. Starting chain counts as a stitch. If your first square does not measure what mine measures, you will need to adjust your tension or your hook size.

Square width =  1.5″
6 small (first round only) squares for each gladiator barefoot sandal (12 total)
4 large (3 rounds each) squares for each gladiator barefoot sandal (8 total)


ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
