Help me understand "Making a Heel"
Hello fellow knitting friends,
I have been slowly learning the tricks to knitting, and for my latest project I thought it would be nice to attempt a pattern called the "Slouchy Boot Warmers" printed in a Dorling Kindersley - Classic knits projects book.
I understand the cabling and I have come to a part in the pattern that I cannot quite understand.
The section of the pattern I am struggling with reads as follows:
Row 64: P5, k1, p6, k1, p9 make a heel.
Making a heel
P7 turn, k the same 7 sts. K 4 rows of st st. [this is where I get confused] Use two holders to pick up the edge st (on both sides) of each of first 5 rows. Make sure opening end of the holders are the the top of piece. Before you p next row, s1 off holder and p, p7, the p first stitch off next stitch holder. Before knitting next row, slip next st from holder and k, k9, k next stitch off holder. Repeat until all stitches on holder are used. Finish the rest of row 64 with p4.
>>SO! my question is, has anyone ever used a technique like this, and if so, is there a video demonstration on how to do this?
I am very frustrated with myself that I am not understanding. It's probably very simple.
Thanks in advance!
