I am a beginner and I am using the english knitting method.
I have two questions. My first question is after I cast off 7 sts., I am left with 1 stitch on my right needle and I’m not sure what to do with that 1 stitch. Do I move it back over to the left needle and begin to follow row 2 and knit 7 sts. or do I leave the left over stitch on the right needle and continue on the left needle, row 2, and begin with a knit stitch?
- I noticed after I cast off 7 sts. there are only 38 stitches left on the needle. Both row 2 and 3 total 45 stitches. I must be missing something.
Here is the pattern and a link to a picture.
Cast on 45 sts.
Row 1: knit
Row 2: k7, p1, k29, p1, k7
Row 3: k 17, p1, k9, p1, k 17
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have 16 ridges. Cast off 7 sts for two rows. Continue pattern for 10 ridges.
Row 1: k2, k2 tog across; end k3
Rows 2, 3, 4: knit
Row 5: k1, k 2 tog across
Rows 6, 7, 8: knit
Row 9: k2 tog across
Row 10: knit
Cut yarn leaving a 10 inch tail. Thread needle, draw sts tog and sew together the toe section. Then sew the heel edges together.
