I'm having a hard time figuring out what the pattern is trying to tell me.  I'm using Silver's Sock Class.  My question is this:

Repeat rows 1 & 2 until you have worked a total of 32 24 20 rows.
End after the last slip 1, knit 1 row (right side row). This actually means you'll knit one less that required, but when counting rows, you'll have half as many slipped stitches along either side as rows required, making rows easy to count.

I'm using the big yarn, so I'm doing 20 rows.  So.  When the pattern says to end after the last slip 1, knit 1 row, does this mean that I'm technically only doing 19 rows?  Or do I do 21?  Does that make sense? 

Thanks for your help!  I really want to get my first socks finished!

Seems to me she's directing you to slip the last stitch as a row-counting aid, and the next row is totally knit (21 rows), but someone with more experience may contradict me. Smiley

That's kind of what I was thinking.  I'll give it a go unless anyone else is as fast with advice as you are, knittinfiasco.  Cheesy  Thank you!

I will do 19 Rows.  Because next you turn the heel.  At then you only pick up 10 stitches on each side.  You are only going to have  holes if you knit too many rows.

You can pick up 11 stitches and do your gausset part 2 with 1 more decrease round.  Then you don't have to rip it.

Hope this makes sense.
