I am knitting my first pair of socks on double pointed needles. I am using a Ann Norling pattern and I have come to the part where I have to divide stitches for the heel. I am to put on 24 stitches on the #1 needle and then 12 stitches each on #2 and #3 needles. I am not sure what needle should be #1 and what needles should be #2 and #3. I then have to work back and forth on #1 needles as follows. Row 1 (right side) Sl1,K1 rep between*across. Row 2: Sl1, P rem sts across and work 24 rows. You will have half the # of slipped sts making it easy to cound. End after last sl1,k1 row. I would really appreciate anyone's help to decipher this. Thanks :??
