Do 5 single crochet and then 2 single crochet in last stitch. Then a slip stitch to first stitch ( the chain at start of this round)

Round 3- chain 1, single crochet in same stitch as chain.

Then 2 single crochet in next stitch

Now do 12 single crochet

Now do 2 single crochet in next stitch , 3 single crochet in next stitch which should be the middle. Sometimes I must mis calculate stitches and end up only doing 1in one stitch and two in the next

Do 2 single crochet in next stitch ( after your 3 singles) then do 12 single crochet, then 2 single crochet and a single in next stitch and a slip stitch to the chain at start of this round to join.

Round 4- chain 1

Do 10 single crochet all the way up in each stitch. Then do 5 half double crochet in next 5. Now do 2 half double in next stitch and then repeat or next stitch. Then do 3 half double crochet in next 3

Then do 2 half double crochet in next stitch and do the same in next stitch. Then do 5 half double crochet in next stitches

Do 11 single crochet and then a slip stitch on the first chai of round to join. Pull tight. cut about 15 cm yarn. Enough to be able to see in tail on wrong side of sole to secure your work

Complete sole. If at any point it is hard please comment and I will try to explain better. If also this wool is hard to see in pics I will make another in light colour for easier viewing.
