GAUGE:
13 sts + 14 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in sc with A. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
FPSC (front post single crochet) Insert hook from front to back then to front, going around the sc post, draw up a loop, yo and draw through 2 loops on hook.

Skip st behind the FPSC.



sc2tog (sc dec) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop.

Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop.

Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.



Note: When working sc in joined rounds, always sk the sl st at beg of rnd, sc in the next actual sc.

Make the final sc of each round in the last sc, the one with the sl st join.

Sole is a shaped oval, made in joined rounds back and forth, with short-rnd shaping; the join is at center of heel.

For clarity, mark the sc at center of toe and move marker up into each center sc as you go.
