Sensational Knitted Socks
I'm doing my first pattern from this book. I've completed my cuff, my leg, and my heel turn. Now I'm ready to pick up stitches for my gusset. I'm using 2 circs. I have 16 stitches on one needle, which are my heel stitches. The 2nd needle has the instep stitches.

I PU 14 stitches from the side of my heel flap and 2 at the top of the gusset. Place a marker. Then it says, "NEEDLE 2: Work ***half*** of instep stitches in pattern, PM, PU 2 sts at top of gusset, PU 14 sts from side of heel flap, knit half of heel flap stitches from needle 1 to needle 2."

The part I'm having trouble with there is the "half." There are 28 stitches on needle 2. If I only work half of them, I'm still 14 stitches away from my heel flap and gusset. That makes no sense to me. I would think I would work all the way across needle #2.

The second question I have is after I have done the above, I move on to the gusset. Right before it gets to the gusset instructions, it says, "Work rnd 1 once to combine sts picked up and to eliminate gap at the top of the gusset." Then it goes on to give me instructions for Rnd 1, Rnd 2, etc.

Are those 2 steps there? I would think, esp since Rnd 1 includes directions to work in pattern, that I would immediately go from picking up my stitches to Rnd 1 instructions, but that little sentence before has me confused.

This is all on page 35 of the book if anyone has it and wants to look.
