Sock Pattern Confusion
I am knitting my first pair of socks. I was doing ok, until I got to the 5th round on this pattern:

www . patonsyarns. com/pattern.php?PID=3051

It won't let me post the actual link since this is my first post so I put a couple spaces into the address.

Do I do all three (k4, p4) on the first needle in a row, then proceed to the instructions for 2nd and 3rd needle?

And when it says to slip stitch to next needle, does that mean the needle I've just knitted onto or the 2nd needle or 3rd needle depending on where I am in the pattern?

Thanks in advance!

Here's the link for those who want to see it -

Yes, just do as it says for each needle. When you slip you just move the last stitch from needle 1 to needle 2, etc.

I've never seen a pattern done like that before, but I've only made regular socks not tube socks.

Thank you so much!

I didn't realize until I got further into the pattern that it was for a tube sock. But maybe that is good for a first time sock.

I didn't think about it, but I believe the moving of the stitches is because it's called "spiral tube sock" so it's creating a spiral. :doh:

Oh yea! That makes sense.
