Weave in your ends, tighten your original cast on of the sole, sew up.
 Edge of shoe
Start by crocheting tongue to top of shoe by starting at the sole top. Crochet like you are going to sew the two together then loop bring yarn through then loop bring loop through both, then chain two loops, repeat to top of tongue. Then put an edge to the back of top of the shoe, stick hook through top edge of shoe loop bring through, loop bring through both, continue to other side and then start the beginning again connecting the tongue and top of shoe. Lace up and your done.
Note: To make a larger size same rows of knit and purl for sole, and for the top of the shoe you want to work your way down to 16 total that includes the tongue. So basically you would seperate 6 pegs for the tongue, and for the top back of the shoe you would decrease by 1 on each end for each row till total down to 16.

Will be adding the circular loom example an pattern soon.
