View Full Version : Jester bootees pattern help

09-04-2007, 03:04 PM
I am *trying* to knit the Jester Bootees from Zoe Mellors book 50 baby bootees to knit.
I am sooo confused with the Make a hem part,
It says:

rows 8-9 knit
row 10 purl
row 11 k1, *yo, k2tog* to end
row 12 purl
row 13 knit
row 14 purl
row 15: make hem, fold work at row of holes and knit together, 1 stitch from the needle and 1 stitch from row 9 across row.

I just don't understand... do I pick up stitches from row 9?
and how would I know where row 9 is?

I haven't seen the pattern or done this, but that purl row before the eyelet row should help give you a clue about where to pick up. I don't think it's highly critical if you pick up on the 9th or 10th row (whichever is easier for you) as long as you're consistent.
