Not sure how to describe this one, but I'm knitting a sock toe-up from the same pattern I've used before, and the instructions go something like this:
"Divide half of the stitches onto 2 needles and leave for instep.
Knit the stitches off 1st needle onto 3rd needle.
Purl 23, turn
Knit 22, turn
Purl 21, turn
Continue in this manner, with 1 less stitch at the end of every row until there are 8 stitches
Continue in this manner, having 1 more st at the end of every row to 24 stitches. Place marker at the end of last row
Knit in rounds across all 48 sts until work from marker measures 7 inches."
Now, my problem is that when I began the part where I had 8 stitches and started working one more stitch each round, it stretched the stitches so that it made holes.
A picture of a finished sock with the holes:
I already finished two socks with the holes, but now that I'm making a pair for my mom, I want to know if there's a way to prevent these holes on her pair. (I tried just pulling the stitches tighter, but it didn't really do much.)
