So I'm doing this pattern that I got off of cocoknits.com for some boot/slippers and the soles are done separately, and then you connect the other color and start doing circular knitting around the sole. I get the idea but I'm confused by the directions.
Row 1 (rs): With mc, k 8(should I KO or CO, it doesn't say). Do not turn, pu and knit through 2 ridges from edge of sole (I don't know if it matters where I start on the sole or not). You now have 10 sts. Turn.
Row 2 (ws): [p1, k1] across 10 sts. Do not turn, pu and purl through 2 ridges from edge of sole (do I pick up the next 2 ridges directly next to the 2 ridges that I picked up from the first row). Turn.
When I try and follow the directions the way I think it turns out that the 10 sts are going away from the original ridges so when I try and pick up the next ridges in the next row theres like a hole and the sole is all stretched out. Can anyone help?
