Trying to make my first pair of booties
I don't understand the pattern directions:
"With right side facing, rejoin yarn at base of instep and k up 12 sts along side edge of instep, k across 12 sts of instep, k up 12 sts along other side of instep, k rem 12 sts."
Prior to these directions, I had shaped the instep by K24, turn, K 12, turn, K 24 rows on this set of sts only. Break off yarn.
What i don't get is this-do i pick up the stitches along the side of the instep first? And then, do i knit across the top piece & down the other side of the instep though it says to knit up that side??
thanks in advance!
