PAT­TERN NOTES

To pre­vent a lean­ing join when work­ing in the round, work yarn un­der hook in­stead of yarn over hook when pick­ing up the work­ing yarn through each stitch be­low. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated. Chain-3 at be­gin­ning of row/round counts as first dou­ble cro­chet un­less oth­er­wise stated. Chain-2 at be­gin­ning of row/round counts as first half dou­ble cro­chet un­less oth­er­wise stated. Smaller pair pic­tured: color A = Oban (main), color B (edge, stripe and flap) = Orkney, color C (sole) = graphite. Larger pair pic­tured: color A = graphite (main), color B (edge, stripe and flap) = Oban, color C (sole) = Orkney. To work in 3rd loop of half dou­ble cro­chet on right side rows/rounds, tilt the top edge to­ward you to ac­cess the first of the 3 loops of the half dou­ble cro­chet. Insert hook into this loop.
