I'm trying to crochet these beautiful baby shoes, but I am stuck. I hope someone can help me out, because I really want to get them finished...


Instructions: Chain 20
Row 1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook; sc in remaining; chain 1, turn. (19 sc)
Row 2 7: Sc across; ch 1, turn. Place markers at each end of row 7.
Row 8: Sc across; ch 1, turn.
Row 9: Dec 1 sc each side of row; ch 1, turn. (17 sc)
Row 10 -13: Sc across; chain 1, turn. (17 sc)
Row 14: Dec 1 sc each side of row (15 sc)
Turn. Do NOT yo. Draw up a loop in each of the next 15 sc; yo, draw through all 16 loops on hook; pull snugly; chain 1. Drop your yarn.
Fold bootie wrong sides together. Join length of yarn at base of heal, making sure wrong sides of piece are together. Sc up back of bootie to ankle. Fasten off, weave in ends.
Pick up dropped yarn at toe. Sc up to marked rows, then sc around ankle opening. Slipstitch into 1st sc at ankle opening. Chain 3; DO NOT TURN; dc at base of same stitch. Dc around to front center of ankle opening; chain 3; TURN; dc around*. Fasten off and weave in ends. Fold down cuffs at ankles and attach optional 9mm jingle balls securely with yarn at their corners or * incorporate the jingle balls into the stitches at the corners as you crochet them for maximum safety.

This is the pattern. I was able to get to row 14, and draw up all the loops required. But then... Drop your yarn? What is that suppossed to mean? I'm just a bit tempted to really drop my ball of yarn on the floor, but I guess it's not going to help. I mean, do I have to leave my yarn attached, or do I cut it off?

And then this line: Fold bootie wrong sides together. Join length of yarn at base of heal, making sure wrong sides of piece are together. Sc up back of bootie to ankle. Fasten off, weave in ends.
Do I have to work with the yarn that is sticking out there from the beginning?

I realise now this is a bit unclear without pictures. I'll try to upload some as soon as possible, but if someone has a brilliant idea...

EDIT: This is where I got the pattern: http://diymaven.com/2008/12/17/elfin-baby-booties/

They want you to pull up a large loop and take your hook out.  Then sew the bootie together as stated then put your hook back in (pull the loop to your normal size) and finish the pattern as stated.
