    Question on the Mini Christmas Stocking. On row6 it says to leave remaining 4 sc unworked. When starting to stitch the pattern together, there is only i side of the foot area.
    it doesn’t make a whole mini stocking in the foot area. Hope you understand. Please help. Thank you.

    Hi Sharon,

    The instructions for Row 6 tell you to slip stitch in the first four
    stitches and then at the end of the row to leave the last 4 stitches
    unworked. Row 7 then instructs you to single crochet in each single
    crochet, (not in the slip stitches). I think you may have worked single
    crochets into the slip stitches from Row 6. Those should remain unworked
    resulting in a piece that has a “foot” sticking out the bottom in both
    directions. Then, you fold the piece in half and stitch up all of the
    edges except the top to get the stocking.

    Please let me know if this doesn’t makes sense. I’ll be happy to try to
    explain it differently.
