Hello. I’m stuck knitting my first sock, I wondered if someone might help me? The pattern is here: http://com.yarnspirations.pattern-pdfs.s3.amazonaws.com/Patons_ClassicWoolDKweb1_kn_socks.en_US.pdf
I’m knitting the large version, so have 54 stitches (18 on each needle). My issue is with the heel, I’m unsure how I rearrange the stitches. The pattern says:
Slip last 14 sts of 3rd needle and first 14 sts of first needle onto needle for heel. Slip rem 26 sts onto st holder for 2nd instep.
Which is considered the ‘first needle’, and which is the ‘third needle’? How do I rearrange these stitches without putting the yarn stitch in between other stitches?
Here is a picture of my work at the moment:
