Hi there. I am a very new knitter and am trying to knit a stocking for my little boy. Eventually I hope to do stockings for the entire family. The stocking is done on regular needles and then will be sewn up the side to make a seam (I think!) My question is this: The pattern reads:
Divide for heel: From RS, sl firts 13 sts to holder for right half of heel; sl next 27 sts to 2nd holder for instep; sl rem 13 sts to free needle for left half of heel.
It then goes on to describe what to do for left half of heel, right half, and the rest of the stocking.
When I slide the first 13 sts to holder, that is where my working yarn is. How do I start working on the left half of heel when there is no working yarn there? Did I slide my stitches off the needle incorrectly?
Thanks so much!
