Well, although that does make sense (and I certainly do appreciate your help), the pattern is actually done the other way around. It starts at the top and then goes down to the toe. The directions are divided into sections: ribbing, calf decreases, heel flap and so on. For the ribbing part it says to cast on 64 sts then work 14 rnds. Then continue to work 14 rnds in alternating colors. So maybe what I should do instead is work the first part of the ribbing and then go directly to knitting the calf decreases instead of working the 14 rnds of alternating colors? I'm just wondering if that will work okay? I think it might, but I'd like some advice on it. Thanks!
Okay, I've never knit socks in my life. But I've been wanting to knit the "Pippi Kneestockings" from Stitch 'n Bitch. They seem easy enough and I really like striped socks. The thing is, I don't like knee high stockings. I'd prefer if they were just a bit shorter and cut off around the calf instead. But again, since I've never knit socks before, I'm not sure how to go about doing this. I've tried looking up other patterns, but alas, have only managed to confuse myself further. If someone could please give some helpful links, or advice, I'd appreciate it! Thanks!
Ah! That is the coolest thing I have seen in a long time! You did a very nice job on it. I've been wanting to knit up a Dalek, so I'm happy to see one already made. Definitely going to try to make this one.
