So I knitted a sock using Silver’s sock class and that was pretty easy. I decided to try a pattern from the SKS book and it’s not as easy. I’m kind of stuck. Apparently I need large, colorful pictures to get it. I’m at this part…
The heel is worked back and forth in rows on 28 sts beg with WS row and ending with RS row.
Rearrange sts to center patt over instep. Unknit last purl of rnd and then:
Move unknit purled st from needle 3 to needle 1, then move 1 st from needle 1 to needle 2 and 1 st from needle 2 to needle 3.
Needle 1: Instep sts
Needle 2: Instep sts
Needle 3: Heel sts.
Work in heel st with 3-st garter border. Starting with a WS row, TURN work before first row.
Ok, first of all what is the point of moving the stitches around? And how do I know which is the WS and which is the RS when it’s in the round? And what do they mean by turn the work before the first row?
