Toots Toes

The First pattern for Raising Robertson’s is here!!! It’s pronounced (tuhts)  it’s what i will forever remember my pap calling my grandma.  My husband calls me that on days he notices my home sickness growing in my heart. Speaking of Toots, My mom told me how excited my grandma(Toots) was to see the barefoot sandals i made.  These ones to be exact. . .

They are soo colorful!  Unlike the pattern, i used yarn instead of crochet thread so my squares are one less row than the pattern.

The pattern can be found over at Simply Collectable Crochet, by Celina Lane.

I was so inspired by my grandmas enthusiasm and faith in my work, that i decided to write my own pattern in honor of her.

Here they are!! (FREE pattern below)
