Help with pattern for baby booties
I am having a difficult time with this. I am fairly new to knitting as I do not consider myself intermediate. This is where I am struggling: K18, turn, p9, turn. On 9sts, work 12 rows stockinette. Break yarn. With RS facing, (9sts on needle), pick up 10 stitches along side of food, 9 sts from tow, 10 sts along side of foot and 9 sts on needle (47 sts)
What is breaking the yarn? I am so confused I am started over about 12 times and at the point now of just giving up the whole project. I feel so stupid that I am not getting this at all.
