baby sock heel confusion
brand new here also a new knitter, hope you all can help.

Heel: knit the stiches of needle no 1 on needle 3 (did this) these 20 st will form the heel side of the sock. Purl 1 row.
Needle 1: slip 1, k 1
Needle 2: slip 1 st stich purl wise, purl the entire row

work these two needles an additional 8 times, so in total 18 rows are knitted.

i guess my question is do i work needle 1 accross with a slip 1, knit 1 then move to needle 2? or work slip 1, k 1 then start on needle 2? i just cant figure this out..

I have done a couple of rows and end up taking them out, it just doesn't seem has 3 1/2" of ribbing before starting the heel.
the confusing part to me is working needle 1 and needle 2, i feel like it should just be 1 needle worked...i have done socks but it was a different pattern and seemed eaiser then this one. hope someone understands my confusin

got the answer if your interessted
well, no one responded to my post for help on this sock pattern the way it was written even tho it seemed that several did look at the question. Being very frustrated I called the store (was unable to call when I first posted because they were closed Sunday and Monday) that was why I needed help....anyway it was s1, k1 entire row and needle 2 should have been needle 1 (so you aren't working on both needles just back and forth on needle 1 for 18 rows) seems it was a pattern mis-print....YAY it isn't me!!!

I'm sorry it either got overlooked or whatever.

I'm glad you figured it out. BTW..sometimes if you need an answer right away I find that looking up another pattern can help. Especially with something like socks where the basic pattern is done pretty much the same. This is a basic sock pattern that might help you sometime. Many of us have learned socks on it.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
