Hi! I’m still a newbie at knitting and trying to learn as I go along. Unfortunately, I’m having trouble figuring this out… :?? Btw, I’m knitting a slipper with a sole and the sole pattern are as follows…
cast on 24 sts.
Beg moss/seed st sole as foll:
1st row [K1, p1] to end
[color=red]2nd row Cast on 1 st, [p1, k1] to end, cast on 1 st. 26 sts[/color]
3rd row [P1, k1] to end.
Cont in moss/seed st as set and taking inc sts into moss/seed st, inc 1 st at each end of next and 2 foll alt rows. 32 sts.
I don’t understand how to do the line in [color=red]red[/color]…
- For the begining ‘cast on 1 st’, I did a knit stitch without dropping the old stitch and move the new stitch from right needle to left. That would creates a new stitch on the left needle. Then, do a purl knit on the new stitch and knit on the next stitch and continue p1, k1. Am I going it right?
- How do I do a ‘cast on 1 st.’ at the end of the stitch? Do I leave 1 last stitch at the left needle and do as in #1 above? Or, is it done differently
Thanks in advance!!
