hello, i’m making a pair of socks for my husband and i’m at the calf shaping and i’m really confused. i currently have 24 stitches on each of the 3 needles. here is what i dont understand.
Shaping round: K1, SSK (or Slip one, Knit one, Pass slipped stitch over) knit to last three stitches, then K2 tog, K1
Repeat this shaping round every SEVENTH round FOUR times, for a total of 64 stitches.
(You should have 20 stitches on needle number one, 24 stitches on needle number two, and 20 stitches on needle number three.) [/b]
can someone pleassssssssssee explain that to me??? i understand the ssk and all that but when they say the 7th round do they mean after i have worked all 3 needles??? or just the first and third one cuz one of them should still have 24 stitches when i’m done with that???
and also after this for the heel flap it says :
Arrange to have 32 stitches on the heel flap (use whatever method works for you and gets the 32 stitches onto one needle).
Knit 32 rows in stockinette or heel stitch, end ready to begin a Right Side row. [/b]
what do they mean arrange to have 32 st on the heel flap??? please help. i really want this sock to be perfect for my hubby.
