Hi, everyone. I’m trying to knit this pair of slippers for my mom for her birthday, but the instructions for the heel flap have me a little confused. I’ll post them here:
[on 22 stitches]
Knit 11 sts past the marker, then turn and work back over the stitches you’ve just worked [ignoring the other 22 stitches on your needle, which will be held to become the instep] and
Heel Row 1: sl 1, p 21, turn
Heel Row 2: s1 1, k 21, turn
Repeat these 2 rows 11 more times or until the heel flap is about as long as it is wide.
The entire pattern can be found here: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTfuzzyfeet.html
The part I don’t understand is how, if I cast on 44 stitches total, work the heel on 22 stitches, and I knit 11 past the marker, shouldn’t there be more than 22 stitches left on the needle? Also, if I knit 11 past the marker, then turn and work back over the stitches I’ve just worked, then those heel row instructions don’t make sense to me either. Is there a typo, or am I just not getting something here?[quote][/quote]
