Baby Barefoot Sandal - Simple and Sweet

These baby barefoot sandals are SO CUTE! This pattern is for a very simple, easy to work up design that looks awesome! Enjoy!
Size 6-12 months on my 20 month old. Barely fit!!!

Light Worsted weight yarn
Size F hook
Yarn needle

Using different combinations of size and hook can get you different sizes. Using the items described, your sandal will fit about 6-12 months. Use smaller hook or a lighter weight yarn to get a newborn size.

Start with a magic loop
Round 1(IN MAGIC LOOP): Ch 3, 2 dc, ch 5, 3dc, ch 5, 2 dc, ch 5, join with top of ch-3. Tighten loop.
Round 2 (Edging): ch 1, sc in same st, sc in each dc, (sc 2, ch 6, sc 2) in next ch-5 space ONLY, then sc 5 in each ch-5 space, sc in each dc around. Fasten off.
Ties: Attach thread to top corners (I attach to the middle of 5 chains)and ch 30 for ties

Please add a comment with the size needle and type yarn you used with the age it ended up fitting for others to get a better idea for gauge!
I only have access to so many children to gauge!
