I am working on these socks and have a question about the heel flap. I have knit two pairs of socks about a year ago for my daughter and these are my first socks for myself so I’m a little rusty. This is the part I am at…
On last row of stich pattern rearrange stitches so that 33 are on first needle, 17 sts on second needle, and 16 sts on third needle as follows:
Move the last stitch on needle three into position as first stitch of needle one, knit three repeats of Cable/Lace stitch pattern, ending final pattern with p1 instead of p2. This will center the 11 stitch repeat on the first needle. The heel flap is knit back and forth over the 33 sts divided between needles 2 and 3 only, until the enough of the heel flap has been knit so that heel stitches may comfortably be combined onto one needle. Turn your work after each row of the heel flap.
Row 1 [RS]: K2tog, (k1, Sl1 with yarn in back) to end. Row 2 [WS]: Sl 1, purl to end. Repeat Rows 1 and 2, 15 times more.
Turn Heel Row 1 [RS]: Sl1, k17, ssk, k1, turn work. Row 2 [WS]: Sl 1, p5, p2tog, p1, turn work. Row 3 [RS]: Sl1, k6, ssk, k1, turn work. Row 4 [WS]: Sl 1, p7, p2tog, p1, turn work. Row 5 [RS]: Sl1, k8, ssk, k1, turn work. Row 6 [WS]: Sl 1, p9, p2tog, p1, turn work. Row 7 [RS]: Sl1, k10, ssk, k1, turn work. Row 8 [WS]: Sl 1, p11, p2tog, p1, turn work. Row 9 [RS]: Sl1, k12, ssk, k1, turn work. Row 10 [WS]: Sl 1, p13, p2tog, p1, turn work. Row 11 [RS]: Sl1, k14, ssk, k1, turn work. Row 12 [WS]: Sl 1, p15, p2tog, p1, turn work. Row 13 [RS]: Sl1, k16, ssk. Row 14 [WS]: Sl 1, p16, p2tog. 18 sts rem.
So I moved the last worked stitch from N3 to the first position on N1. Then moved stitches from N2 back onto N1 to make 33 stitches, then got 17 on N2, and 16 on N3. The first stitch on N1 was already knit (do I knit it again or proceed with second stitch? I went onto the second stitch) so I did the Row 4 of CableLace pattern across N1. Then I began the heel flap on N2 with Row 1: K2tog, (k1, sl1) to end and then Row 2. Rep Row 1 and 2 15 times more. I assume that means there will be 32 rows total, correct? When I do this it looks like it is shaped fummy with all those k2tog on the one side, is this correct? Once I finish this I don’t think I’d have enough for the next row for turning the heel. Row 1 says to sl1, k17, ssk, k1…I would need 21 stitches for that row.
Could there possibly be a mistake or am i just really off on this?
