I am really confused on the directions for the foot. Help please!

 

Dec 11, 2013

Hi. I am completely baffled by where it starts at the foot and the main color is joined at the heal, then it says to decrease at the leg. So do I join the MC yarn that I attached to the heal to the leg, and if so, where do I join it at , or where to I decrease at? I hope I am making sense. I would really like to make this in time for Chrismas . Thank you.

this is my first project in a long tim, I have completed the leg and heal. the instructions for the foot have lost... Foot With right side facing, skip first 7 (10, 11) sc of heel ((what im assuming this means is I start in the bottom of the heal?? using the main color or CC s7nce its says join MC next?)), join MC and sc in last 7 (10, 11) sc, [dec over next 2 sc of leg] twice, sc in next 8 (14, 16) sc of leg, [dec over next 2 sc of leg] twice, sc in remaining 7 (10, 11) sc of heel; turn 26 (38, 42) sc. Work even in sc and stripe pattern until foot measures 3 (5, 6) from last ... if someone can help me understand these steps id be greatful.

made this last night, very easy and fun.

I am stuck on the heel as well. Decreasing to 4 sts seems okay for the small version, but what about the other two larger ones? I am making the largest and decreasing to 4 sts makes the heels GIANT! I was trying to think about what a logic number of sts would be to decrease to, but I am just learning to crochet, and since the patter doesn't really seem to have a logical ratio from size to size, I think that I am stuck. HELP, please someone!

Anyone know - Is the yard amounts for all three stockings or just one stocking? I have approx 150 yds of red yarn but am scared I'll run out making the medium size (super saver is approx 360 yds)

I'm confused with what to do after the heel?

 

Nov 20, 2013

I didn't write this pattern but I can help with the Heel being a little hard to understand. It should read like this: Heel 1. With right side facing, skip 23 (32, 35) sc; join CC and sc in last 7 (10, 11) sc; bring other side of leg around and sc in first 7 (10, 11) sc; turn 14 (20, 22) sc. 2. Next Row: Ch 1, dec, sc in each sc to last 2 sc; dec; turn 12 (18, 20) sc. 3. Next Rows: Ch 1, sc in each sc to last 2 sc; dec at end of each row until 4 sts remain. Now increase 1 st at each end of every row until there are 14 (20, 22) sc. Fasten off.
