MATERIALS

1 - 50g ball of 4 ply knitting worsted for Color A (Blue).
1 - 50g ball of 4 ply knitting worsted for Color B (White).
You can use whatever colors you want. I used blue and white.
(This is an estimate, I usually buy larger sizes,
so I am really not sure how much I used)

Hook - 4.50 mm (H-8 US size)

Gauge - 4 sc = 1 inch, 4 rows of sc = 1 inch



Abbreviations used:
st - stitch
ch - chain
ss - slip stitch
rnd - round
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
tog - together
How to do the 2 sc tog - Insert hook into st, yarn over hook and pull up a loop. Insert hook into next st, yarn over hook and pull up a loop. Yarn over hook and pull through all loops on hook.
How to do the 2 dc tog - Yarn over hook, insert in st, yarn over hook and pull up a loop, yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops on hook. Yarn over hook and insert in next st, yarn over hook and pull up a loop, yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops on hook. Yarn over hook and pull through all loops on hook.

SIZE is for a 9 to 10 inch foot. I'm sorry but I don't have time right now to make up patterns for other sizes. But I suggest that you try larger hooks for bigger sizes, and smaller hooks for smaller sizes. You could also experiment with different yarns (sportweight, chunky, etc) as well as different sized hooks. The sole is very easy and fast to make up - once you have the sole the right size, you can follow the rest of the pattern and it will fit.

SOLE
With Color A (Blue or whatever color you chose) yarn, ch 6.
ROW 1: 2 sc in second ch from hook, 1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st, ch 1, turn. (7 sc) In the next rows, all stitches are through back loops only. (Throughout the pattern, ch 1 does not count in the stitch count.)
ROW 2: 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st, ch 1, turn. (9 sc)
ROW 3: 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next 7 sts, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, turn. (11 sc)
ROW 4: 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, turn. (13 sc)
ROW 5: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn.
ROWS 6 to 18: Same as Row 5.
ROW 19: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (11 sc)
ROW 20: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn.
ROWS 21 to 33: Same as Row 20.
ROW 34: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 7 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (9 sc)
ROW 35: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (7 sc)
ROW 36: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (5 sc)
ROW 37: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 1 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (3 sc)
ROW 38: 3 sc tog, ch 1, turn.
Next, make 1 sc in last sc of previous row, place 1 sc at the end of each row along side of sole (don't make them too tight) (39 sc), place 6 sc across the back of the starting chain, place 1 sc at the end of each row along other side of sole (38 sc), 1 sc in same place as the starting sc of the round, ss to join to the starting sc, ch 1, (Total = 84 sc) do not turn. Now you are going to make a turning ridge - 1 ss through the front loops of each sc (don't make your ss too tight), ss to join, attach Color B (white or whatever color you chose) yarn, ch 1, turn.

RND 1 - With Color B, ch 1, 1 sc in next 39 sts, 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 39 sts, ss to join, turn. (82 sc)
