Working on my first sock in knitting patter from Lion Brand. Well I got to the part where I start the heel flap and realized I made the starting chain 2 stitches short, so for that I have to make some adjustments. I am not taking it apart. The font was so small on the pattern I mistook the numbers of 64 for 62. Well after that mistake I decided to go to Lion Website and found they have their patterns there so that was a help.
My question, the heel flap is made to a certain measurement, then when the heel is done and it is time to knit back in the round, it says to pick up 16 stitches. I understand the process, but should I assume that during the heel flap making process that I should be working 16 rows, so I can pick those back up?
I seem to have issues with my guage changing after I am kniting a while, and seems that rows or rounds would be easier to understand. I ended up havint to take the sock back down to the starting point of the heel flap due to the fact I only had the ability to take around 14 stitches up the instep.
Any advise thanks
