I am trying to follow a pattern for baby socks which is new to me. (I’ve made socks before but not this pattern.) The instructions say to cast on 24 (28, 32) for the different sizes. The first rows are for the top part of the sock, which are normal. Then it goes to the heel. The first instruction says "Using color C: K0(1,2). I don’t know what this means. Does it mean knit one row? Or don’t knit a row for the smallest size, 1 row for the next size and 2 rows for the larger size?
Then, later on… after doing the heel which is 12 stitches, it goes on to say" Using color C: Knit 12 (18, 24). So I started with 28. I haven’t decreased any - so how am I supposed to knit 18 stitches? I’m so confused.
Here is the entire portion of the pattern that I’m lost on.
