Shaping the Heel with Decreases:
You wil crochet 2 rows with decreases in the middle of the piece. Each decrease row you will decrease 4 sts.

Seaming the Heel:
Thread yarn needle with the long tail.  Holding the piece on the right sides so that the sts on the edge of each side align themself. We will seam around the post of the sts on each side, not into top of the sts. This way the seam will be almost invisible, imitating the front post sts.

Seam the sides at heel inserting the needle around the post of the stitches on each side this way:
-  for the front post sts part: insert needle from front to back around the post of  the sts on both sides
-  for back post sts part: insert needle from back to front around the sts of the side nearest to you and from front to back around the sts of the other side.


Seam any holes created by the decrease sts. Cut yarn. Fasten off.

Make another slipper the same way.

I hope you enjoy this pattern!
