Good morning all
I’m working on Silver’s Sock Tutorial. I’ve completed one pair and have started on a second. I hope I can articulate this question to give a good visual so I can get the correct answer (and solution if there is one). Below are the instructions for the beginning of the heel. If I follow these instructions exactly slipping one purlwise at the beginning of each row I end up with one side of the heel having nice neat "V’"s however the other side looks different-it has these little knots. How do I make both sides of the heel the same so that when I go to pick up the stitches it is nice and neat? Does this make sense? Any help would be appreciated. Am I doing something wrong to have them look different? :?? :wall:
Work back and forth on needle #1.
Row 1 (on the right side of your work): Slip 1, Knit 1 Repeat between * across, turn work. (32 24 20 stitches)
Row 2 (wrong side): Slip one, purl across. (Slip ONLY the first stitch, purl the rest including the slipped stitches from row 1.)
