GAUGE:
 10sc x 10sc = 2,3 (width) x 1,8 (length) inches
 NB! You will definitely need to gauge to get the sizing right.

SOLE:

With double strands of gray yarn ch 11, sc 2 in 2nd ch from hook, 8 sc, sc 4 into the last ch. Now work opposite side of the foundation chain. 8 sc, sc 2 into the last ch. Do not join, you will start next round by crocheting straight into the first stitch. (24 sts)

Row 2: sc across.

Row 3: sc 3 in first st, sc 3 in the next st, 10 sc, sc 3 in the next 2 sts, 10 sc. (32 sts)

Row 4: hdc across.

Row 5: 2 sc, sc 3 in the next 2 sts, 14 sc, sc 3 in the next 2 sts, 12 sc. Sl st into the first st and fasten off. (40 sts)

TOE:

From the tip of the sole count 9 stitches to one side and 9 stitches to the other side. Mark the 9th stitch from both sides with a stitch marker. You will now work with the 18 stitches between the stitch markers.

Starting from the left side attach white yarn to the stitch marked with a stitch marker, and slip stitch across to the other marked stitch in back loops only. (18 stitches)

Row 1: ch2, turn, dc across in the front loops only.

Row 2: turn but do not chain, work fpdc dec across.

Row 3: turn but do not chain, work bpdc dec across. Fasten off.

Attach double strands of white yarn at the back of the boot and sc across the edge in the back loops only.

Now with single strand of white yarn make one row of raised sc, sl st into the first st and fasten off.

WRAP:

With white yarn ch 34, hdc in the 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across. (32 hdc)

Row 2: ch2, turn, hdc across in the back loops only.

Row 3: ch2, turn, hdc across in the front loops only.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until the piece measures 6.5 inches. Crochet the first and last row together to form a tube. Now placing the seam at the back of the boot sew the wrap around the edge of the boot. Add decorative buttons to the outer side of the boot.
