Hi, I’m new. :waving:
I haven’t knit very much - I’ve only really done a couple of scarves. However, I got my hands on the Short Toed Socklets pattern http://www.coats.de/PDF/reg_zehenfusslingENG.pdf and had to make them (because they are so. danged. cute.). I have many questions about this pattern.
After countless tries, I’ve finally gotten to the part where the toes separate. It says to cast on 4 stitches. I didn’t know how to cast on in the middle of something - my cast on stitches didn’t seem to work (I tried the Continental cast on and the knitting cast on). Is there a different way to cast on in the middle of the work?
The pattern referenced 4 needles and my stitches were not evenly distributed around the needles (15 on two needles, 8 on one, 6 on another), and then wanted me to do some decreases (I think :rollseyes:). Does the pattern “know” how wonky my thread distribution is? Do I assume that when I do the decreases? I finally came to a screeching halt (at 11:30 p.m.).
Am I in totally over my head?
I found this thread http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=38910 and in it they said to not do the bar between the toes (I’m assuming these are the cast on stitches).
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I hope that I explained my questions in detail enough.
