New to socks- working the heel flap- help!
Hello! I hope someone is awake to help!
I am brand new to knitting socks. I am making top down socks and started on 4 double point needles. I am at the point where I need to start the heel flap.
My instructions had me divide my stitches 16 on needle 1, 8 on needle 2 and 8 on needle three
then it tells me to:
"knit across ndl 1, heel flap will be worked on ndls 2/3
row 1: *sl 1, k1, repeat from * across.
row 2: *sl 1, p1, repeat from * across.
work these two rows until you have 16 heel row flaps. heel flap should be close to square. end having worked a purl row."
This is my question. I knitted the 16 (on needle 1), then sl1, k1 on needles 2 and 3. Now I am back to needle 1. What do I do? Do I knit, then on needles 2/3, sl1, p1? Or do I sl1, p1 all three needles?
Thanks in advance!
