Hi All. It’s been a while since I’ve posted; don’t have as much time these days as I’d like to catch up on everything!
I am making this hat and sock set for my niece’s first birthday: http://p2designs.com/pdfs/ptn-duckySox.pdf
(She loves to say DUCK! DUCK! It’s too cute.)
Anyway, I’ve never made booties or socks and I am stuck. I had to start over this weekend because I made such a mess of it!
Here is where I don’t know what to do:
NOTE: HEEL IS WORKED IN BACK & FORTH IN ROWS ON NEEDLES 2 & 3
OVER 13(15/17) STITCHES.
needle 1: knit 6(7,8 ) p1, k 6(7,8 ).
row 1 *Slip 1, k1 repeat across from *
row 2 Slip 1, purl across
Knit in heel pattern until you have 10 (10/12) heel flap rows.
Ok - So, I knit the the first 15 on needle one ok. Then I continue to knit row 1 on needles two and three. However, there are an odd number of stitches total for needles two and three, so I don’t get how row 1 would work. Also, do I knit back and forth on needles two and three? I did this the first time and I ended up with the last stitch always getting slipped and it became this tight lone stitch.
Any help would be really appreciated! I have a feeling I might be back after, well, if, I can get through this part. Her birthday is this Saturday so I am stressing!
