Knitting a Christmas stocking
I'm making a Christmas stocking for the first time. I have knit sweaters, scarves, and hats before but never a sock! I don't know how to proceed in the directions. According to them I have turned the heel on both sides, now I'm to do the gusset and Instep. It says to k8 sts of Right half heel. With same needle, pick up 9 sl sts from right edge of heel flap, (what is the heel flap?). the slipped stitches are on the right side of the piece so if I k8 sts I will be on the left side of the heel piece. I'm thinking that the directions are wrong. I found a mistake before. I think I'm supposed to k8 sts and pick up 9 sl sts from the LEFT side of heel flap then pick up the 27 instep sts and 9 sl sts along the RIGHT side of the other heel flap and then k the rest of the 8 sts. Does that sound right?
