Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

This is going to sound stupid, I apologize, im feeling a tad better, going to start booties. I want some knitted in the round, I found a pattern but how do they turn/make the L shape of a sock/shoe? Does that make sense?

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

This was posted by someone on a blog. I couldn't link it because it is actually a comment of how to make the original pattern but in the round:

CO 25 (29,35,41), divide sts evenly on 3 DPNS [you can use circular needles, but I found that was hard to do with such a small diameter cuff. Double pointed needles are much easier to work with in this case IMHO.]
1) Join last st casted on to first st, being careful not to twist the sts. K row
2) Purl row 2
3) Repeat steps 1-2 (knit & purl each successive row) for 8 (10,12,14) rows
4) [begin decreases] K 10 (12,15,18), K2tog, K1, K2 tog, K10 (12,15,18)
5) K9 (11,14,17), K2tog, K1, K9 (11,14,17)
6) K8 (10,13,16), K2tog, K1, K(10,13,16)
7) Cont decrease pattern until 17 (19,23,27) sts left
8) [ribbed cuff], K1P1 across row for 4 (5,6,7) rows. Double to 8 (10,12,14) to have a fold-down cuff
9) Bind off LOOSELY. [If you don't bind off very loosely, the cuff will not give.]

Oh, so one more thing. On step 8 of my list, when making the ribbed cuff, since there are an odd # of sts, the ribbing doesn't work, as you end up starting and ending with a knit. So, for the first row only, K2tog for the first st, then P1,K1 through the rest. You should then end with a purl before starting again with a K for the beginning of the next row.

It doesn't have short rows. Do you need help with any of those steps? If you do, which? It seems that you could probably make it an even Number cast on instead of an odd and k2 together when you join. What she is doing is deleting the 2 stitches the were for a seam but only takes one away at two points. It would be just as easy to just not co those two stitches and ignore the k2tog comments.
