pints the red pin)

9 carreira: 9th row: use pink thread. See the picture to understand better.
Fold the work lengthways. Leave 7 gaps between the sc and start 25 dc with
pink thread. Since it is also divided on the other side, youll have 14 gaps in
front (where youll make dc in white at a later stage) and 50 for the sides in
pink. From now on, turn the work at the end of each row.
(on the picture in the middle): Youll do the 14 dc here for the front of the
shoe.
