Thanks! From what I can tell it is a different pattern. I think you are right about the instep and working the heel on two needles, but i can’t seem to find a tutorial for that. Everything I’ve found has the heel flap worked on only one needle. Does the link work now? http://home.comcast.net/~meangirl/BigfootSocks.pdf
If not, the directions for the beginning of the pattern are as follows (I’m using DPNs btw):
DPN’s - 20 sts on needles 1 and 3; 35 sts on needle 2.
Work all rnds as foll:
Needle 1: (P2, K3) 4 times (20 sts);
Needle 2: (P2, K3) 7 times (35 sts)
Needle 3: (P2, K3) 4 times (20 sts).
Cont in patt for 58 rnds or until leg is 6” long from cast-on edge.
Set up heel:
Magic Loop - Work heel on 38 sts of ndl 2. Needle 1 begins and ends
with P2. Knit one round in patt.
DPNs - Knit ndls 1 and 2 in pattern. Move the first 2 sts from needle 3
to needle 2 (these two purl sts will form the border bet instep and foot
and prevent ladders). Knit to end of needle 3 in patt.
Next round: Hold 37 sts on needle 2 to be worked later for instep. RS
is facing (you may need to purl one row to do this, just do whatever
needs to be done). Work the heel on needles 1 and 3 (38 sts).
Row 1: *Sl 1 pwise with yarn in back, k 1, rep from * (end k1).
Row 2: Sl 1 pwise with yarn in front, purl to end.
Repeat these two rows a total of 19 times or 38 rows total with 19
chain sts (slipped selvedge sts) along each edge. End after a WS row (row 2)
I guess I’ve never done an instep before and don’t know exactly what that means. I’ve completed the leg of the sock I just don’t know how the pattern works from there.
