I've just started crocheting and can't find any tutorials or FAQs to help me read - and understand - this pattern for baby booties http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=4185.
I'm stuck where the foot starts: "With RS of work facing, join yarn with sl st at center back. Ch 2 (counts as hdc). 1 hdc in each of next 6 (7-8) sts, 7 hdc down side of instep, 2 hdc in corner sc, 5 hdc across end of instep, 2 hdc in corner sc, 7 hdc along other side of instep, 1 hdc in each of next 7 (8-9) sts. Join with sl st in top of ch 2. 37 (39-41) hdc."
Where do I start? In the middle of the piece? As it is shaped like a box (23st wide) with a smaller box centered on top (8 st wide), I can't do 6 hdcs without having to 'jump down' to the bigger box.
Next question is the instep as mentioned above ("7 hdc down side of instep").. I can't see how the booties will look from what I have (where does the little box go?), so I don't now where to do the 7hdc.
I'm not sure this makes sense at all! But as you can see, I'm lost in translation!
Thanks for helping me out - it's very appreciated!
