I'm knitting a pair of Pebble Rib socks for my husband, and I'm stuck at one point in the pattern.
Here's what the finished sock should look like:
Here's what I have so far:
The wide part at the bottom is the cuff. The long portion in the middle is the instep. Per the directions, I "Rep Rows 1 & 2 until instep measures 8 inches, ending on WS row. Cut yarn." I did that.
The next part of the directions is where I'm stuck:
Row1 (RS): With RS facing, K9 sts from holder, pick up and knit 18 sts along side of instep, K12 sts from needle, pick up and knit 18 sts from other side of instep, K9 from 2nd holder (66 sts).
I just can't wrap my brain around how to start knitting the sts from the holder, and picking up along the side, while my needles are still holding the sts at the top of the instep. I've tried a few ways, but it's weird and awkward. Any help would be appreciated Thank you!!!
