Okay, so I'm down to the heel and am confused on what the pattern is saying to do. If you have the book, I'm at "HEEL" on page 64. Basically, I've completed the final round of the rib pattern (I have 48 stitches cast on). I'm told to place the first 12 stitches and the last 12 stitches of the round onto 1 dpn and to place the remaining 24 stitches onto a stitch holder. So, the yarn is in the middle of the one dpn (since I finished a complete round and placed the first 12 and last 12 stitches on the one dpn) with 12 stitches to the left and 12 to the right.
The directions then say "With WS facing, p across 24 heel sts." This is where I'm confused... since the other 24 stitches are on a stitch holder, I can only purl 12 stitches before I get to the end of the dpn.
What am I missing? What am I doing wrong? Should I have stopped the rib pattern either 12 stitches after the beginning of the round or 12 stitches before the end of the round and then followed the directions about placing the first 12 and the last 12 sts onto 1 dpn?
Thanks in advance for the help!!
