Im on the heal of a sock pattern (just finished the leg) on 3 double pointed needles.
I’m confused about the next steps because step 1 only includes 14 stitches, but steps 2 is 26 stitches. Where do the other 12 stitches come from between step 1 and 2 or is it in total 40 stiches, but only the 26 from step 2 move to step 3?
Partial Row (right side): [K2, p2] 3 times, k2, turn work so wrong side is facing you.
Partial Row (wrong side): [P2, k2] 6 times, p2, turn work.
Arrange stitches so these 26 Heel Flap stitches are on one needle and remaining stitches are on hold on two other needles 13 stitches each.
