I have been thinking about trying the sherman toe/heal because of some posts/links given on this forum.
I have one question. Can someone better explain the encroachment stitches? I’ve read the link and it just says where to put your needles and etc but the note at the end of one link said she was doing it wrong for years and so I’m confused. Mostly about what “lift st beneath next stitch” means. Plus I knit Continental so I am not sure if that is confusing me more on these instructions.
P enc (purl encroachment): sl 1 st purlwise; lift st beneath next stitch purlwise; insert L needle into both st from L, behind R needle;
P 2 tog. (a purl variant of ssk).
K enc (knit encroachment): sl 1 st knitwise; lift st beneath next stitch purlwise; insert L needle into both st from L, in front of R needle;
K2 tog (a slight variant of ssk).
Any help would be appreciated!
