For the toe, just keep knitting round (purl one on top of a knit stitch and the other way around) until 16 stitches are left: K11, K2tog, K10, K2tog, K9, K2tog, K9, K2tog, K8, K2tog, K8, K2tog, K7, K2tog, K7, K2tog, K7 turn, cast off pairwise (8 times 2 stitches).

*Switch to DP needles

** Use double yarn starting from this round to strengthen the heel (until round 96) or the toes (until end)

Crochet 2 lines alongside the border
