Fourth of July Shout Outs 2

Fourth of July Shout Outs - Crochet Sandals!

Going on to our second day of Fourth of July celebration, here is a very cute pair of crocheted sandals made by Crochetforkids1828.

I spoke to Whitney Young at Crochetforkids1828 about her pattern and she confirmed that the pattern was made using slip stitch (Sl St), half double crochet (HDC), and single crochet (SC). While many of the items for sale in her shop are made using these stitches, Whitney's favorite stitch is the shell stitch. It's made from double crochet stitches and looks really lovely.

If you're interested in learning how to crochet the shell stitch,
