I want to continue the leg pattern down the heel flap…but I’m confused.
The leg pattern is in Sailor’s Ribbing. I’m trying to continue to a garter-edged heel in Sailor’s Ribbing.
Pattern directions are from MORE SENSATIONAL KNITTED SOCKS page 21 and 67.
Top down sock on 4dpn
neddle one 20 st
neddle two 15 st
neddle three 35 st Ok I’m ready for the heel flap.
Directions say, Work heel on 34 st, beg with WS row and ending with RS row.Move 1 st from from heel to instep as follows to balance patt on instep.
Unwork last st on needle 3 and place it on needle 1 (ok I did this)
Now needles 1 and 2: Instep sts, needle 3 Heel sts
Sts per needle ( 21 15 34) ( ok I got this)
Heel-Flap with continuation of Leg Pattern with 3-st Garter Edge
Row 1 (WS) K3, work patt on next rnd to last 3 sts, P3. (Remember, first 3 sts are garter st; start patt on 4th st.)
Row 2 p3, work patt to last 3 sts, K3.
Rep rows 1and2
At last the questions; Do I work back and forth on needle
3(heel needle) only?
Do I work in the rnd? If yes, how? With Sailor’s Ribbing or
as above with row 1 WS and row 2.
I hope soneone has the book and can explain this to me.
They say “No crying in knitting” what about “Swearing”?
