It's a purl ridge done on a RS row (or a knit row on the WS) where you turn up a hem.

Can you give us the pattern name and link please?

If you're doing stockinette a turning row can also kind of make a corner like around the base of a foot. Is that where it is or is it a hem?

That's odd, a turning ridge is usually done on a stockinette piece. Is this knit in the round or flat? When you knit every row flat that's garter, when you knit every round working in the round, it's stockinette stitch.

Can you post a few lines of the pattern, just before and just after this instruction?

Okay, I think I know how this is put together. The purl stitches on this side will form 2 columns of knit stitches on the other side. These will be the sides of the slipper when you fold it closed, the 14 sts in the middle are the sole. The 'turning ridge' is just for information to let you know where they are later in the pattern when it refers to them. You don't have to do anything different, just follow the pattern as written.

I know I am getting ahead of myself, because I'm not there yet but what do I do when I get to the last row and it says k2 tog; do not bind off 10 stitches, what do I do then?
