Hello everyone! I am working on knitting baby booties aka “Ballet Slippers” and cannot figure out the next step in the pattern! It says:
Next row (RS): K8 sts, bind off center 3 sts, work across rem sts.
Working on last 8 sts only, purl 1 row even.
I cannot figure out how to approach working only the last 8 sts. Do I transfer the beginning 8 sts onto a holder? Or simply drag the yarn across the first 8, that does not seem right. Or is it referring to the first 8 sts on the purl side? I’m assuming it wants me to work on the WS because the next set of instructions are for the RS. The next instructions are:
Dec row (RS): K1, ssk, k5 - 7 sts.
Rep Dec row [every RS row] twice - 5 sts.
Work 9 rows even.
With WS facing, join yarn to rem 8 sts, and purl 1 row even.
See attached picture of where I’m at now.
Thank you so much for any help! I tried to search online but there’s nothing that comes that answers my question. I wish I knew an experienced knitter to learn from but am self taught!
