With right side facing, slip next 12 sts on a holder, rejoin M to rem sts, k to end. (problem here don't know what part to put 12 sts on holder)
Another problem I'm having



Shape instep

Next row With right side facing, k5 sts from the first holder,
pick up and k8 sts evenly along inside edge of hell and k5 sts from holder, 38 sts. (of course I'm having problem here too)


I think this is what you want to do: Knit the first 5 stitches from the flap on the right, pick up and knit 8 stitches going down the flap edge, knit across the middle, pick up and knit 8 stitches going up the other flap edge, knit the 5 stitches across the second flap. If I'm counting correctly this will give you the 38 stitches called for.

Is the 5 stitches on the top of the flaps? it make sense to what you are saying better than the instructions it doesn't tell you to knit the first 5 stitches from the flap.

What comes next?
Purl one row then the Dec rows

Thanks for your reply appreciate it.

What she said! You'll be back to 38 stitches again, although you'll have to do a M1 in as you've got four stitches on one needle after the decreases and five on the other, and you should have five on both.

There's 26 projects on Ravelry and they all love how the set turned out, so keep going, you'll get there. The second sock will be easier too as you'll have figured out what's what on the first one.

I'm trying to picture a sock that's open down the back. I'm not succeeding very well. I'm making a huge assumption here that after you purl a row it will have you doing k2tog's and ssk's to decrease along the flap sections.

I think that if they tried really, really, really, extremely really made extra effort that they could have made this pattern more confusing. Maybe.

Thank you! Not just for saying I got it right (I'm amazed at that myself!) but mostly because this can be done and the OP will be able to do it. Thank you for catching the four stitches on one flap part.

Milla Mia is a Swedish company so it could be a translated pattern too. I was thinking back to that one lady with that weird DROPS pattern we both tried to decipher!

Which one? I think there are myriad choices in that category.



I'm trying to get into my head how to fill in the valley between the heel flap halves. My mind does not contort well for things like this. I really hope to the the FO.

I'm surprised that there are no comments on Ravelry about the sock pattern. Certainly seem to be mistakes. Yes, the two sides of the heel should end up with the same number of sts, 5sts. The side with the knit decreases has an error, one too many decrease rows. Maybe undo the last decrease row so that you end with 5sts on each side.
The photos of your knitting look wonderful and this is going to be a very sweet set.

ETA: One question. After the ribbing, do you work on 28sts to knit the leg on the sock?

Remember it's knitted flat, so I'm assuming it must get seemed down the back?

That's what it looks like. The 12 held sts are the instep and the two heel portions will be joined and seamed.
