I am using this (http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/socksbasic.htm
pattern for my first pair of socks and I have come to a part that is confusing my brain! :thinking:
Divide For Heel:
Put one half of the stitches (28 ), centered on the beginning of the round, on a needle. (The easiest way to do this is to knit the first 14 sts, then turn and slip the 14 sts on the other side of the marker onto the needle). Place the other half on a holder - these stitches will be the instep later on. Work the heel flap over the 28 sts (using contrast colour if desired):
P across the back of the heel flap, slipping the first stitch.
Sl1, K1 across.
Repeat these 2 rows till you have worked 28 rows (count the slipped stitches which should be 14).
Okay, I did this but ended up so that my next row is working the WS and the next directions say....
Turning The Heel:
You are making short rows to shape a little "cup" for the heel.
1. Starting on the right side,
knit halfway across the heel flap (14 sts) plus 2 (16). Sl1, K1, psso. K1. Turn.
So, how do I get back to the RS? Purl another row? I thought for sure that at the start of dividing the heel, purling the back of the heel flap would be "row 1" which would mean that row 28 would be a knit row and the next row would be turning the heel but it says to start on the RS. Where did I screw up?
