2 part question, same pattern.
the slipper pattern i am knitting starts out working with straight needles, then you work the rest on dpns.
on the straight needles it asks for k1, p1, k1 into the next stitch, but it creates a hole, why are they asking me to do this?
on the dpns i am supposed to knit garder st, keeping the 1st and last st on needle 2 in stockinette stitch. but the stockinette is appearing on the inside of the slipper when i want it to be on the outside.
any help would be much appreciated
