Thanks so much for the pattern link. You're working the heel flap. Knit over 16sts, then instead of continuing around the circular needle, turn and purl back on those same 16sts plus 16 more sts for...

You're so good to be starting on Christmas gifts. I'm a slow knitter, too but we'll both get there in the end. The alpaca should be lovely to work with. Enjoy!

Gosh, I've read a bunch of sock patterns and I don't recall them ending without finishing out the row. I think the note for beginners is a good idea.

I can't get the numbers to work out either. I'm figuring that you're making the largest size? On the last row I could work: sl1, k18, k2tog and that was it. I had one more unworked stitch for a total...

Because the stitch pattern is multiples of 2sts, the pattern wants you to divide the cast on sts among 4 needles in multiples of 2. That way, you can do the k2tog with sts on the same needle.
It's...

If you want the middle 4 sts extra, the wrapped stitch or slipped stitch is the one before stitch one (stitch 0?) and stitch 5. That way you preserve the middle 4sts of the short row.

Hi X!
I've seen both used but I think I prefer calling the purl back row, row 52. It keeps up the odd/even, RS/WS numbering going.
I hope we get to see this new pattern.

The math works out close for the decreases. Just count your sts to make sure you end with 174. The k2p1 rib will work with that.
Most patterns decrease more gradually to the waist and then increase...

Shappe is carded or combed silk. That's done with waste silk (from making saris for example) so that it can be spun into silk fiber.

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
The row can start with either a knit or a purl, no matter. You can still decrease at the ends of the row.
Don't worry about the k2tog. Work either a knit or a purl stitch,...
