I’d love to start making socks with no pattern in front of me so I was reading EZ’s book this morning. As it happens I began a pair of socks
in K2,P2 ribbing and she said she loves that for a sock.
But look at this: isn’t it contradictory… Or am I just not getting it?
This is on working the HEEL:
“I LIKE TO KEEP THE SIDES OF THE HEEL-FLAP IN GARTER STITCH.
That is, I knit the knit rows. On the purl rows, knit the first four and last four stitches. I also slip the first stitch, and purl the last one on each row, which gives a pretty and useful braided edge–a pleasure to knit up when the times come.”
Ok, that sound very interesting and I want to try it on this pair I started.
But. She say knit the last four stitches then she says purl the last stitch… on each row. You can’t do both. Right?
So which is it?
