I was trying to make the socks described in this premature baby set pattern, for my bro and sis-in-laws new baby who was 2 months premature (don't worry, mum and baby are in hospital but doing fine Cheesy). I've never knitted socks before (or anything shaped in this manner, for that matter).

I got totally stuck after breaking off my yarn. I've included a picture below, and I'm wondering where exactly I go next. I can't find an adequate enough tutorial for picking up and knitting stitches that is followable for this type of work.



I'm assuming that I would pick up and knit eight of the nine stitches on the right hand needle onto the left hand needle, then knit eight stitches on the left hand needle onto the right hand needle, slip the 8 stitches from the 'flap' onto the right hand needle, then knit eight of the nine stitches remaining on the left hand needle. Am I right?

If I'm not, direction would be appreciated. Smiley

Thanks in advance.

Looks very pretty! Your doing a good job!

I will try to explain what you have to do, referring to your picture. The piece that is longer than the rest needs to be connected to the rest to put it into a foot shape. Therefore, what you need to do is take your needle (or a crochet hook) and, working along the side of that longer piece, pick up 8 stitches along that side - you put your needle through a loop on the end, put your yarn over it and pull it through - eight times. The you knit the 8 stitches that are on your top needle, then you pick up another 8 along the other side of the piece that is longer. Now you have all the stitches (42) on one needle. Then you go ahead and work 3 rows in Stocking stitch.

I sure hope this makes sense!
