Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Sc in next 50 stitches . Skip next 2 sc. Sc in next 50 stitches.
repeat row 2 for 11 more rows. You will have a total of 15 rows.
Note: From the point to the V opening and later sewn back seam will form your heel.
Ankle/top of foot:
Turn at the end of row 15 and sl st down the side, leaving 8 stitches from the point of heel unworked. ch 22 being careful not to twist chain, join chain at same point on other side of the V.
Turn and Sc in each ch to other side of point, and join with a slip st. in other side of the "V". Repeat to last stitch of the point for a total of 8 rows. Note: Don't worry if it looks funny at first, like a "V" with a strap on the end- it'll turn out as you work.
