Aran Xmas stocking pattern

Hi,

Im needing some help figuring out what the next step is in my pattern.
The link is below. I currently have 3 stitch holders on the go. 1 holder has 24 stitches, 1 with 8 stitches and 1 with 43 (instep). Iam stuck at the part “with wrong side slp 9 stitches to a needle. Cont in cable pat for 4” etc.

there is no point in the est. pat that has 9 stitches. So im a little confused.

Hope someone can help. I have already restarted this patterns a few times. I have emailed to publisher from the knitlist website but no response.
Thanks,
Jenn

Hmmm. I see what you mean. I guess I’d try working with the 8 stitches that were originally designated as instep stitches. Will it screw up the pattern if you do that?

If there are 8 stitches in the cable pattern, then I’d read the 9 as a typo.:shrug:

It would be nice if there was a picture of it.:think:

thanks for you input. I thought that might have been the problem but wasnt sure.
I will let you know how it turns out.
:knitting:

Either Im not seeing the pattern or it just is not working. I tried just working the 8 stitches in the cable pattern but it is not matching up with the stitches that were cast off. Any other thoughts out there?
Thanks for the help.
