I am making this bootie pattern.
Here is a part of the pattern:
Divide for instep: K 22 sts, turn, P back over 11 sts.
Continue in Stocking Sticth for the next 14 rows on center 11 sts. Break off yarn
Sides: Pick up 7 sts on right side of instep, K 11 sts of instep, pick up 7 sts on left side of instep, K11 sts to complete row - 47 sts. Work 9 rows in stocking stitch. ( It’ll be a little tight till you get a few rows up from the instep.)
I got the instep part done, I am now totally confused on the sides… :??
When it says to “Pick up 7 sts on the right side of the instep”, do I start at the top of the instep, bottom, midde, I don’t get it? The instep is 14 rows (I assume I am picking up the 7 sts on the side/edge where these 14 rows are?) If I only pick up 7 stiches, how do I k11 to “complete the row”? Where does the 47 sts come from??
I guess that is enough questions for now
