Bind off. Fold in half and stitch bottom and back of shoe. Will fit either right or left foot. Make two.
SSK: Slip 2 stitches as if to knit, put left hand needle into front loops of the two slipped stitches - knit this stitch.
NOTE: If you find this pattern is a snug fit on the dolls foot, just change to a larger needle - or if the shoe is too loose, change to a smaller needle.
It will be very helpful if you select a scrap of similar yarn and knit ONE shoe, just to determine how it will fit on the dolls foot. This way you will not waste any yarn.
