Crocheted shoes have become very trendy. Now you can crochet oxfords and slip-ons for your doll from the same pattern. This pattern is part crochet, part craft. The uppers are crocheted, sewn to a foam insole, and glued to the outer sole. The skill level has been rated intermediate because, while the crochet stitches and shapes are simple, thread can be a little tricky to crochet if you are not experienced with it.
This PDF crochet pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
