Barefoot Sandals

Ankle Strap:

For ring, join with sc in space between shells on row 10. Ch 20, sc in 16th ch from hook (The easy way to know that you have counted right is to see if you hve four chains from the bottom.), sc in last 4 chains, sl st in top of joining sc. Fasten off!

Toe Ring:

For ring... ch 10, slip chain through ch 4 ring made on row 1 of top. Join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.

Ankle Bracelet:

Ch 150 and fasten off. Slip through ankle ring at top. Here's something you can to to make the ankle bracelet match your creation is while chaining, every so often add a bead matching the ones in the creation, making the whole creation more cpectacular and custom made. Enjoy!
