First off, apologies for the delay in getting back to your comment. I was down with the big, bad C-bug the past two weeks, and I appreciate your patience.
Now, let’s get to it. You aren’t doing anything wrong, this early pattern of mine was incorrect. The markers should be immediately to the right and left of the k2s on each edge of the sock. I’ve just updated the pattern in the above post to correct the error in rounds 1 & 3.
P.S. Since there was a delay, I’ll also send you an email in a moment including a pattern from the Hands Occupied Pattern Shop to thank you for your patience. 🙂
