Tropicana socks srpo help!
I know someone mentioned this pattern before, but I'm really stuck on the heel part. It's driving me crazy!
srpo = sl st to right hand needle with yarn in front, then pull yarn over the needle – st looks now as if there are two sts, you are not making a yarn over, you just pull it to the back! = srpo double stitch. This double stitch is always knit/purled together as one st. Do not make increases!
The short row heel will be worked in stockinette stitch, back and forth. (If you are familiar with a different short row heel or prefer any other heel – work your preferred heel).
K the 28 sts on needle 1. Turn, make a srpo as described above. Put srpo onto spare needle. P 27. Turn, make a srpo as described above. Put srpo onto spare needle. *K to the end of row, turn, make a srpo, put srpo onto spare needle, p to the end of row, turn, make a srpo, put srpo onto spare needle.* Repeat until 9 sts are left on main needle, work one round over all sts (55). K across sts on main needle, k1 from spare needle,*turn, srpo, p across main needle, p one from spare needle, turn, srpo,* k sts of main needle including srpo st (double st worked as one), k1 from spare needle*, turn, srpo, p across main needle, p srpo double st as one, p one from spare needle, turn, srpo,*. Repeat * to * until all sts from spare needles have been worked. You should now have as many stitches as you cast on (55).
I am waaay confused. any help would be great
