I'm knitting baby booties, The direction is as follows.
Cast on 26 stitches, Garter stitch for the next 10 rows.
the next row, bind off 10 stitches at the beginning, finish row,
The next row bind off 10 stitches at the beginning, leaving you with 6 stitches in the middle.
When I do this, I have no stitches on my needle. Are there suppose to be or do I have to pick up the middle stitches? I don't understand how this can be done because those stitches on the top look like this <>, sort of like that but attached to each other. resembling a V but sideways.
This is a copy of directions
Cast on 26 stitches. Work in Garter Stitch for 10 rows. Bind off 10 stitches at the beginning of the next row. Finish row. Bind off 10 stitches at the beginning of the next row- this leaves you with 6 stitches in the middle. Garter Stitch remaining stitches for 20 rows. Bind off.
