Weave in your ends, tighten your original cast on of the sole, sew up.
 Edge of shoe
Start by crocheting tongue to top of shoe by starting at the sole top. Crochet like you are going to sew the two together then loop bring yarn through then loop bring loop through both, then chain two loops, repeat to top of tongue. Then put an edge to the back of top of the shoe, stick hook through top edge of shoe loop bring through, loop bring through both, continue to other side and then start the beginning again connecting the tongue and top of shoe. Lace up and your done.
Note: To make a larger size same rows of knit and purl for sole, and for the top of the shoe you want to work your way down to 16 total that includes the tongue. So basically you would seperate 6 pegs for the tongue, and for the top back of the shoe you would decrease by 1 on each end for each row till total down to 16.

Will be adding the circular loom example an pattern soon.


  1. Has the circular loom pattern been done yet?

  2. Hello, thank you for all your videos. I have tried and failed to make these twice. I am trying to make a pair for a 4month old. I can get the sole part fine. When I change colors and start the decrease, my work is so tight I am unable to move the loop over. Any thoughts on a loosen tension?

    1. Hi RobinH, I know it's been a while since you posted your question, but since I had the same issue, I thought I'd share what I do: when it's time to decrease, I'll make sure I pull the loops out pretty far on the two pegs that you're moving your loop over and just keep the loops very loose. When you get around to the peg to decrease from again... Just make sure it's very loose and the loop is pulled way out so it will reach to the next peg. That's what I do anyways. Hope that helps!!

  3. I've been making these and the circular loom ones. I'm still trying to master the crochet part around the edges. It's getting better. I think it's the type of yarn that makes a huge difference!! Thanks for sharing this adorable pattern and tutorials!!

  4. I love your videos on all the projects. You are really good at explaining what you are doing. My question is if I want to make the Tennis Shoe booties on the long loom in a larger size what would you suggest? I thought I would try it without the divider on the same pink loom. How many times would you suggest I decease for making the tongue? With the divider you go down to 16 pegs for the back of the shoe. Without the divider how many pegs for the back of the shoe? Thank you again for your wonderfully done videos!
