We’ve all seen the super cheap rubber flip flops around. I found these at Target for just $3.99! I wanted to jazz them up a bit, but I also wanted something easy.
I was able to make these pretty quick and they didn’t use much yarn at all. It would be a great stash busting project by making a few pairs in different colors!
I’m in love with how they turned out and how comfortable they are to wear.

Rubber flip flops (I found mine at Target for $3.99)
Cotton or acrylic worsted weight yarn (I used Red Heart Soft in Light Gray Heather)
5.0 mm hook
Easy – intermediate
Pattern Notes & Stitches to Know
sl st – slip stitch
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
I started with the right shoe, that is what’s pictured.
Row 1: Join yarn around the inside edge of the flip flop by grabbing the yarn under the strap
Yarn over and pull through the loop
Insert hook under the strap, yarn over, pull up a loop
Yarn over, pull through both loops on hook
continue around the strap. Make 44 stitches (if you have a different brand, adjust this number to fit your flip flop – making sure it’s an even number and that both straps have the same number of stitches)
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, *skip one stitch, dc in next* repeat from * to * 9 times (if you have a different amount of stitches, repeat until you reach the center 5 stitches) skip 5 stitches, dc in next *skip one stitch, dc in next* repeat from * to * across
Row 3: Ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, dc in between stitches from previous row, skip, the middle 4 stitches, dc in between stitches from previous row across
Row 4: Ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, dc in between stitches from previous row, skip, the middle 4 stitches, dc in between stitches from previous row across, ch 30, slip stitch into first ch of the ch 30 to make the back strap
Attach a button to the corner opposite the strap
For the left shoe, make sure to still join yarn to the inside edge and repeat pattern. It will be a little more awkward, but this will ensure that the strap is on the correct side.
