Hi there,

This is my first time doing colorwork in knitting and surprisingly my first sticking point is with turning the heel! I copied the pattern below and I’m confused about how Row 16 fits into the sequence established in rows 2-15. How would I end up with 10 unworked stitches on one side and 20 on the other? Thanks in advance!

Row 1: K30 on N2

Row 2 (WS): Sl1, p28 (leaving 1 st unworked at the end) and turn work to the RS.

Row 3: Sl1, k27 (this leaves 1 sts unworked at the end), turn work.

Row 4: Sl1, p26 (turning at the last st bef the gap), turn work.

Row 5: Sl1, k25 (turning at the last st bef the gap), turn work.

Row 6: Sl1, P24 (turning at the last st bef the gap), turn work.

Row 7: Sl1, k to 1 st bef the gap, turn work.

Row 8: Sl1, p to 1 st bef the gap, turn work.

Work rows 7 & 8 until… Row 16: S1, P9, (turn work)

You will have 10 unworked sts on the left side and 10 unworked sts on the right side of your 10 purl sts.
