OKAY! This makes SO much more sense. SO much more! The whole clipping of the heel... that's the part that was missing for me. It made no sense. The instructions were so vague, I thought I MUST be missing something... and I was. I thought there was some way to put the heel together without ever stopping the crochet... but you eventually do have to sew the heel together in the end.
But doesn't it end up making the heel into a bit of a triangle? I've looked at all of the pictures of the MaryJanes AND the long sock version, and the heels look seamless from what I can tell. But there's no possible way, right?
Thank you for the help!!! I'm glad it has been enjoyable for you too!
Did you make the slippers/socks in their whole?
