Then with another length of yarn sew top seam together, matching stitches of foot and rows of cuff.Weave in loose ends.

Lastly seam up heal sideseam from top to bottom, matching rows. Weave in loose ends.

I LOVE THIS PATTERN. Except I wanted to have the foot part in a flat stitch. I used the sc using the 2 loops on the stitch below. This made the foot too narrow. Has anyone tried this and what did you do? I am thinking of using a hdc next time. I am trying to make some slippers for our grandkids and this one is unique.

I don't understand the information between row 1 and row 2. Do we crochet the rest of the slipper in back loop only or just row two?
