Front Toe/Tongue of Sneaker

Starting at the heel of the sneaker where you fastened off, with the front of the shoe facing you, count 13 stitches around the right side towards the front. The 13th stitch is where you will attach your yarn for the front of the sneaker. Always place the first stitch of the row in the same stitch as your chain-1. Make sure to attach the color that you chose for the main shoe body (in my case, I used navy). See picture below.

Row 1: Attach yarn to the back loop only of the 13th st from the heel on the right side. Slst in the back loop only of the same st (the 13th st) and in the back loops of the next 15 sts around the front of the sneaker. (16 slst)

Laces

The laces are actually made from one long chain. If you want extra length on each side in order to be able to tie the laces, chain 65. If you only want it long enough to tuck into the shoe, chain 50. Make sure to leave a tail after fastening off for sewing into the shoe.

“Check” Embellishment

***Use a 3.25 crochet needle for the applique

Ch 10, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in the next 5 chs, hdc in next ch, 2 hdc in next ch, 5 hdc in last ch, fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing onto bootie.

ASSEMBLY

Lacing the Sneaker

1. Use a tapestry needle to bring one end of your chain inside the sneaker. It should go through the edge of one side of the sneaker at about the third row up. Then bring the other end of the chain across the front of the sneaker (over top the toe/tongue piece) and into the other side of the sneaker at about the third row up on the side. Both ends should now be inside the sneaker on opposite sides. See the picture below.

2. Use a tapestry needle to take one end of the chain up through the fourth row on the same side of the sneaker. Then bring that same end across the front of the sneaker and into the other side at about the fourth row up on that side. Now, both ends of the chain should be inside the sneaker on the same side and you should have two lines of laces going across the outside of the sneaker.

3. Drop the end you were using in Step 2 and thread your tapestry needle with the other end. Draw that end up through the fifth row on the same side of the sneaker. Bring that end across the front of the sneaker (it should be the top lace) and into the other side at the fifth row on that side. You may need to adjust the laces so you have an even length of tail left on each side.

If you are leaving the ends of the laces tucked into the shoe, you may want to make a larger knot at each end to keep them from slipping out of the shoe.

Sewing the “Check” Embellishment

  1. Determine the side of the shoe you want to be the outside and use a tapestry needle to sew the applique onto that side of the shoe.
  2. Sew the applique to the opposite side of the other shoe so that it will face the outside.

Optional

You can sew the sides of the toe to each side of the sneaker if you choose to do so. This will help to keep any baby toes from wiggling out in between the side of the sneaker and the toe piece.
