Could anybody help with the pattern please? My actual question is after the pattern. Here is the pattern I am working on:
Cast on 33 sts loosely (use a slightly larger needle if you like to cast on and off with). Work a K1,P1 rib for 10 rows.
Eyelet row: K1, * YO, K2tog * . Repeat from *'s to end.
P next row.
Divide for instep: K 22 sts, turn, P back over 11 sts.
Continue in Stocking Sticth for the next 14 rows on center 11 sts. Break off yarn
Sides: Pick up 7 sts on right side of instep, K 11 sts of instep, pick up 7 sts on left side of instep, K11 sts to complete row - 47 sts. Work 9 rows in stocking stitch. ( It’ll be a little tight till you get a few rows up from the instep.)
Heel and toe shaping:
Row 1: K2, K2tog, K17, K2tog, K1, K2tog, K to end
Row 2: K2, K2tog, K to end.
Row 3: K2, K2tog, K15, K2tog, K1, K2tog, K to end
Row 4: K2, K2tog, K to end.
Row 5: K2, K2tog, K13, K2tog, K1, K2tog, K to end
Row 6: K2, K2tog, K to end.
Bind off loosly.
Finishing: Sew back/sole seam. Crochet a chain 16" long. Thread chain thru eyelets.
I don’t understand the picking up on the sides. Both of my needles have stitches. What do I pick up with? Do I need a third needle? I just don’t get it. I have already broken off the yarn.
Thank you very much.
