Well..er..yes, I have knitted socks once before using Silver's sock classes which have excellent step by steps with photos and all. Then I (possibly overambitiously) decided I'd try the extra tall socks found here:http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTverytallsocks.html
OK..well, I got the first bit about the casting on and knitting 15 rows of k1p1 ribbing..which is what I am doing right now, but when I look at the next bit, my head starts spinning.
"Work in stockinette st for 92 rounds.
Set-up Rnd: K22, place marker, k46, place marker, k22.
Shaping Rnd: K to 2 sts before first marker, k2tog, k to second marker, slip marker, k2tog, k to end of round.
[Work 3 rnds even. Work Shaping Round.] 3 times. 82 sts rem. (Rnd 106 just worked.)
Work 38 rnds even. (Round 144 just worked.)
[Work Shaping Rnd. Work 1 round even.] 13 times. 56 sts rem. (Rnd 170 just worked.)
Work Shaping Rnd once more. 54 sts rem.
Work 68 rounds even. (Rnd 239 just worked.)"
Ok...so, what exactly are stitch markers?
and when it says work in stockinette for 92 rounds, does it mean I do that BEFORE I start trying to follow all the instructions below or are they the instructions for the 92 rounds? And when it says k22 it means k22 stitches doesn't it, rather than 22 rounds? My head is spinning....
Has anyone knitted this pattern before or one like it? It would be great if you could help...I like knitting but knitting patterns are so mean!
