Can anyone help me understand these directions? I'm knitting a Christmas stocking and am working on the heel. I just finished a section of the pattern called "Making the Heel Flap" and am trying to figure out "Turning the Heel."
I've been working 29 stitches back and forth to make the flap. Now it says:
"K19, K2tog, K1. Turn. You now have 28 stitches."
By my math 19 + 1 (two become one) +1 = 21, not 28. What happens to the other stitches that are still on my left needle? If it helps, the next row is:
"Slip 1, P10, P2tog, P1. Turn." Again, that doesn't seem like it adds up to enough stitches.
Thanks for any advice you can give!!
