Making my first pair of socks and here are the instructions:
Divide for Heel: with the 4th needle, k14 sts on first needle, slip the same number of sts from 3rd needle onto opposite end of 4th needle for the heel. Cut yarn.
Divide the remaining 30 sts evenly onto 2 needles for the instep to work later.
The instuctions then go on to work on heel sts.
My question is, if I am going on to work on heel sts, why do they say cut yarn? I don’t understand how I am to keep knitting the heel when the yarn is cut.
