Help w/ a Christmas stocking pattern
I have never knit a Christmas stocking or a sock before and have gotten to the end of the turning the heel section and am very confused.
The instructions read "Row 3: Sl 1 as if to purl, p to 1 st before gap made by sl st on last row, p2tog, p1, turn.
Row 4: Sl 1 as if to purl, k to 1 st before gap made by sl st on last row, ssk, k1, turn.
Rep Rows 3 and 4 until all sts have been worked, end with RS row - there are now 12 sts for the heel. Note: On the
last 2 rows there will be no heel stitch to work after the p2tog or ssk.
Next Rnd (RS): K across heel sts; with same needle, pick up and 9 sts across side of heel flap; with needles 2 and 3, k
across 24 top of foot (instep) sts; with needle 4, pick up and 9 sts across other side of heel flap and with same needle k
across 6 of the heel sts - 54 sts at the end of this rnd."

I repeated rows 3 and 4 and ended up with the proper number of stitches (12) after completing a row 4. Now it says to knit across these heel stitches but my next row needs to be purled. What have I done wrong? The pattern even says that you should end with RS row, wouldn't that be a row 4, knitting row? Then says the next rnd is (RS) knit. Should't it be purl??

I'm sorry this post is so long! I really appreciate any help! Thanks so much!!!
