Make the binding around the sole with slip stiches.
Sole. Hiding the thread
Cut the thread, leaving about 10—12 cm, drag it through the first slip
stitch of a row and hide the tip on the underside of the sole,
stretching it between the loops along the entire sole.
If we want a double sole, then we crochet two right soles. And binding two soles at once (we put them on each other and tie them, pulling the hook through two soles).
The sole is ready!
