We want to join yellow here. There are two ways you can do this.
- Finish off and re join the yellow yarn in the middle stitch
- When you go to join the round with a sl st, instead of pulling through the yelow, pull through the yellow and continue with the next round. Pick up black again when you get to round 7.
Round 6: with second colour (yellow), ch 1, sc around. Join to first sc with a sl st and finish off.
Re join white using one of the above methods.
Round 7: Ch 1, sc around. Join to first sc with a sl st. Finish off. (40 + sl st loop = 41)
Mark the first stitch with a stitch marker. This is the stitch after the sl st join.
Count from (including) the stitch marker 14 stitches towards the front on either side and mark with a stitch marker.
You should have 16 stitches for the front of the shoe. Start and finish where you placed your markers.Join black in place marked by first stitch marker
