Baby Sheild Moccasins

I was asked to create a option for the below Baby Mukluk's
to change them to a traditional Moccasin look. I hope the Shield
will help those seeking this look and also eliminate the Fpdc / Bpdc that
some are not familiar with.
Use the Baby Mukluk pattern-but on the last row of the ankle instead of
the Fpdc / Bpdc--simply Dc in each stitch then tie off /weave in ends.

The shield is a simple circle (such as used to start a granny square.)
Chain 3. Dc 15 times in third chain from hook (16 Double Crochet to create the circle) Pull your beginning yarn tail tight to close the hole in the circle. Slip stitch to top of beginning chain 3 to closed. Tie off/weave ends.
Cut the number of yarn's ties desired to about 6 inches each (I used two
for each shield.) Use a large eye needle to attach the shield to the side cuff.
Tie/knot on outside of shield --cut tails so that they are the length you like
hanging from the little shield's.
