I am knitting socks for the first time and feeling somewhat confused.
The instructions are from Bernat ‘Ankle Sock’. freebie pattern that was on the backside of the skein label or (here http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=3012 )I have completed the first bit but stuck on the make heel part.
The directions read:
MAKE HEEL: Divide 28sts on 2nd needle onto 2 needles and leave for instep (ok so far)
K16 off 1st needle onto end of 3rd needle (wouldn’t this close the sock?)
The rest I think that I understand. I have done short row before for shaping so I think I can handle the rest. I am just uncertain about which sts are knitted when and where for starting the heel.
Thank you in advance for your help. I unfortunately do not have anyone local to bother with the newbie sock question.
