I am a new knitter. I have done a blanket, scarfs and dish clothes. Someone I work with is having a baby and I wanted to try baby booties. I’m not great with patterns, so I was finally able to find a pattern I can read and gave it a go. I am also a visual learner, if i can see it on a video I can generally do it.
Doing the pattern I am frustrated. I did it the way I believed was right and it didn’t turn out, so before I try again I want to make sure I am using the right technique. The word TURN is what is confusing me I think?
this is from the pattern:
Ruth’s Perfect Baby Booties
Shape Toe/Top of Foot
Row 19 Sl 1 st knitwise, K28, ssk, turn.
Row 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34: Sl 1 st purlwise, P7, P2tog, turn.
Row 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33: Sl 1 st knitwise, K7, ssk, turn.
Row 35: Sl 1 st knitwise, K4, M1, knit to end of row. (36
Row 36: Sl 1 st purlwise, purl to end of row.
Row 37: Sl 1 st knitwise, (YO, K2tog, K1)* to last 2 sts,
YO K2. (37 sts) (This makes 12 eyelets for “shoestring”.)
Row 38: Sl 1 st purlwise, purl to end of row.
so do I do this like the heel of a sock?
If someone can link me to a video that would help greatly!!
