Socks: Gusset Turning - not enough stitches
I'm making Lion Brand's Cottage Socks but my stitches don't jive...........

it says:
Quote:
Row 6 P across remaining 5 sts.
Gusset and foot K across the 5 sts of heel turning, pick up and k 8 sts for heel gusset, place plastic marker, k across 10 sts for instep, place plastic marker, pick up and k 8 sts for heel turning, place plastic marker-31 sts.
I make it 23 stitches instead..........if you have 5 and 8 on each side you get 23

What am I missing here????????????
