Hi! I’m a beginner and I’m trying out this pattern for booties. Got a bit confused with these instructions.
Rep these 4 rows etc. …
Break off yarn
Does the words in bold means I just cut the yarn? In the middle of a row? Or do I have to cast off? What would happen to the loose yarn if I were to cut off? Is it to be tied somewhere? Or am I reading the instructions wrongly?
I’m doing the heel part and am shaping the instep. The next part requires:
pick up and K8 sts up side of instep,
K across 9 sts of instep
pick up and K8 sts down side of instep.
