debbie bliss bootee help
has anyone ever made a pair of debbie bliss bootees? I have done the first part, including "shaping the instep", but now i am STUCK!!! The pattern has asked me to break off the yarn, leave stitches on holder, then with right side facing, rejoin yarn at base of instep and with needle holding first stitches, pick up and k12 along side of instep, k across centre sts, then pick up and k12 sts along other side of instep. k rem 12 sts. 60 sts. k12 rows. break off yarn....

well, there are only 36 stitches to start with (not 60), so i am not sure what to do. I am also not sure how this all connects.... has anyone ever made a pattern like this? it is from debbie bliss's baby style. this pattern seemed so simple at first. now i am lost!!! thanks for any help.

You also knit the sts you just finished, the center sts. You pick up 36 new sts, if you have 24 sts in the center, there's your 60.

debbie bliss booties problem

I am doing the same patter and also got stuck in one part. I picked up 12 st along side of instep than knit 12 on the top of instep, than 12 st pick up along down and I also knit 12 st rem on needle from the 'base' that was done as first things.

That means I have 60 st. The pattern says to K 6 rows. Should I knit 6 rows of all 60 stitches or only 36 of the instep ?

The second issue is, in Next row (wrong side) I should pick up 5 rows below, but what does it mean 'corresponding with next st on left-hand needle ? Is it to pick up 60 st? How I should knit these picked up stitches from below with my 60 st on my work ???

Thank you for answers !

You keep knitting with the 60 st. I think you're kntting the sides and bottom part of the bootie now. In the end you'll need to seam the bottom and the back of the bootie.
When it says pick up a st 5 rows down, it usually means to look 5 rows below the next st on the left needle, scoop that st up onto the left needle and work the 2 sts together. It's usually done for an entire row to create a rib or tuck. Does that make sense with the picture?

Thank you for your comment! I am working now on those 60 st and I hope I will find out the next step (5 rows below) later with help of your instructions.
I am a beginner in knitting. Did some projects like hats, mittens and baby sweater, but this pattern is very confusing for me for some reason...
