Hello Fellow Knitters !!
I'm pretty new to knitting and have some questions about a pattern I'm working on. It is called 'Thigh High Footless Socks' by Lion Brand. The pattern link is: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/70781AD.html
The part I need help with is the heel slit/opening. It requires me to bind off on one row and cast on sts on the next row. I've watched all the videos for the binding off and casting on, but I still have a few questions. I get the binding off part, but the next row says, "Purl, cast on 23 (27, 32, 36) sts over bound-off sts of previous row." Does the "purl" mean I need to purl a stitch before I cast on or does it have something to do with the way I cast on or something else? Also, I don't understand how to "cast on OVER bound-off sts of previous row." I've looked through the videos but I can't find anything that shows how to do this. Is there a video that I just overlooked? If not can someone please explain how I do this? I would really appreciate any help I can get!!!!
