Confusing Pattern
 
Hi,
I’m a beginner at knitting and I’m totally confused with this pattern.

After I knitted the 11 rows, I started the 1st row of “Shape Toe” I did all the stitches but I still have stitches left over.

Do I start the second row with the left over stitches or just knit to the end of the row?

Please help!!

You are working short rows, which mean you will not use all of the stitches on a row. Follow the directions and when it says to turn, do just that. Swap needles in your hands and work back on the other side of your work.

Hi and welcome to Knitting Help!
Don't worry about the extra stitches that are left unworked when you turn. You'll knit them when you get to rows 9 and 10.
Very sweet pattern for booties. Thanks for posting the link.
