I’ve got a question about sock knitting- I’m in the middle of my first pair, and ran into an issue. I started the heel flap, and the directions are as follows:
Row 1: (Slip 1, K1) across
Row 2: Slip 1, P remaining stitches
So here’s my problem. The slipped stitches at the beginning of the knit rows are turning out funny, and as a result, one edge of my heel flap looks very different from the other. The slipped edge on the purl rows looks pretty normal- similar to what is in Amy’s videos. The slipped edge on the knit rows looks weird- sort of like there are knots evenly spaced out along that edge. To my knowledge, I’m slipping the stitches correctly (purlwise), but I could be wrong. Are the 2 edges of the heel flap supposed to look different?
Also, does anyone have any tips for how to unravel rows when doing a sock without taking the needles out and risking dropped stitches? Or do I just have to remove the needles, rip away, and hope I can successfully get the needles back in without rewinding too far?
Any help is greatly appreciated. This sock stuff is fun!
