Help a beginner with understanding a pattern?
I am knitting baby booties, and in doing so confronting a pattern that contains a few new issues...
These are knitted on straight needles, and this particular part of the pattern makes the top of the booties (pattern is in [square brackets] so its less confusing) which will include my first attempt at cabling.. probably why I'm having issues;
Now I understand that leaving stitches unworked means to leave them on the left needle, but
[k15, p2, k4, p2, k1, leave remaining sts unworked.
Slip all sts with yarn in front:]
what does the last part mean? I know how to slip stitches, but what does it mean the stitches with yarn? All stitches are yarn! And what is this reference to "front"?
Then... What does "turn" mean?
[Row 1: Sl 1 from left to right needle, turn, p2, k2, p4, k2, p1
Row 2: Sl 1, turn, k2, p2, slip two sts to cable needle and hold in front, k2, k2 from cable needle, p2, k2]
Any help would be much appreciated!!
