Pattern for Doll's Shoes

Well here is the pattern for those strange shaped dolls shoes. It is very rough and ready but feel free to contact me if you have any problems.

This is for a pair of shoes for a 'Jelly Cat Doll' approx 14" tall.

4ply Cotton, 3.5mm crochet hook. Tension (approx) 18sts to 10cm /4".

(note) I made one of these then counted everything and made the second. The second one didn't seem to have the exact same no of stitches as the first, however following this rough pattern should work for you to make two the same. Please forgive me as I am giving this one away.

I am giving the English name for the stitches. Treble (tr) is Double Crochet (dc)in the USA and double crochet in England is single crochet in the USA. So just substitute your name for mine...err hope that makes sense

Left Shoe. First Round: , chain 13, 1 tr in 4th chain from hook, top loop only. 1 tr in each of next 8 chain, top loop only. 10 tr worked including the 3 chain. 2 tr in same place as last tr, turn the work around (not over) and work 3 tr in the bottom loop of the same chain. (It makes more sense when you work it than it sounds!!). 8 tr in bottom loop of next 8 chains, 4tr in last chain, join with ss to 3rd chain of 3 chain.

Second Round: Dc in next st, 3 dc in next st, half tr (ht) in next st, tr in each of next 6 sts, ht in next st, 1 dc in each of next 2 sts, 3 dc in each of next 2 sts, 3dc in next st, ht in next st, 6 tr in next 6 sts, ht in next st, 3 dc in next st, ss in next st. Sole Made

Sides, First Round: 3 chain, 1 tr though back loops only of next 34 sts, ss to third chain of 3 chain.

Second Round: Same as first.

Third Round: 3 ch, tr 2 together over next 2 sts, 1 tr in each of next 30 sts, tr 2 together over next 2 sts, ss to 3rd ch of 3 chain. This end is the toe end.

Fourth Round: 1 ch, dc 2 tog, *3 dc in each of next 3 sts, dc 2 tog* rep from * to * to last stitch, skip last st, ss to chain, fasten off.

Strap: Rejoin yarn at what looks like a good spot, about 5 sts round from the first st for the left shoe. Dc in that stitch, 2 dc in next 2 sts, *turn, 1 ch, 3 dc in next 3 sts* work from * to * till the strap just overlaps the opposite side (I did this with the dolls foot in the shoe, if you don't have the doll, strap should be approx 2" at this stage). Form a point on the strap: Turn, no chain, 2 dc next 2 dc, turn, no chain, 1 dc, fasten off. Sew a tiny button on the opposite side from the strap, you should be able to just push the button through the strap without having to make a button hole. Sew in ends.

The right shoe is the same as the left, just be sure to attach the strap on the other side, just match it to the place for the first one.

I hope this makes sense. Good luck and I'd love to see any of them that you do make. :)
