I just started working one of the 12-stitch sock patterns in SKS (pgs 57-61).
I finished the toes and will be getting ready to begin the foot. I am a bit confused about something in the instructions, however.
The way the instructions read, you are supposed to move one stitch from needle 2 to needle 1 (which I understand).
Then the number of stitches per needle are listed (in my case it will be 37, 17, 18).
Here's the part I don't understand:
"Beg each rnd of patt work with extra st on chart or in written instructions. This will balance patt over instep."
Does this mean that I only have to move the one stitch the first round of the foot, or am I supposed to move it each round? I would think it would only be the one time, or else the pattern would be moving around the sock, right?
Sorry if this is a dumb question...just seems like each sock is a new challenge.
Thanks a bunch!
