I’m knitting a crocodile (stuffed) and the pattern for the legs doesn’t make sense to me. It says:
Shape foot: Next row: Inc in each st - 18 sts. Ss 5 rows.
(so far so good, I’m knitting 18 sts in stockingette stitch, but then…)
Divide for toes: Next row: P12, [then using sewing up needle threaded with separate length of green yarn, slip last 6 sts onto the thread, draw up and secure, p3] twice, break off yarn, leaving an end, thread end through remaining 6 sts, draw up and secure.
The pattern notes that instructions in [ ] brackets areworked as stated after brackets, but I don’t understand the bit about p3. I think maybe if I got that the rest might make sense. Obviously, the drawn up and secured parts are toes, the pattern is knitted from the top of the leg to the toes. There is no picture to help matters.
