I’ve just started knitting some bootees (from a Debbie Bliss baby book) and I don’t understand the pattern (I deliberately chose the easiest sounding pattern, or so I thought).
With a cast on of 36 stitches, and 21 rows already knit, it says:
Next row: K24, turn
Next row: K12, turn
K24 rows on this set of sts only
- Is that 24 rows including the first two, or as well as?
- If I knit 24, then turn, there are 12 stitches left on the needle when I turn - the next row calls for 24 stitches. Is this correct - do I stitch to the end of that row and then stitch another 12 stitches of the next row?
- What does 'on this set of sts mean?
- I’ve already tried this by carrying on to next row when I ran out of stitches (and frogged it). Where the turns occurred, there are holes in the knitting. Is this correct?
Thanks in advance for your help.
