Crochet info: At the beginning of each row with dc, replace the 1st dc with 1 ch and finish the row with a dc in the ch from beginning of previous row. At the beginning of each round with tr, replace the 1st tr with 3 ch and finish the row with a tr in the 3. ch from beginning of previous row. Crochet in each dc/ tr (not in between)

Binding off tips:

Cut and sew the thread. Insert a marking thread in each corner = 4 marking threads. Continue to crochet tr around the sole as follows:
