Regarding the same pattern, I am very lost with what to do with the 22 FSC once made. Am I doing this around or making a chain or connecting it and then skipping 20 sc. Help!!!


I am trying to figure out Foundation Single Crochet. I understand how to do it but I am not sure where to join it. Do I join it at the 20 crochet of the sock foot and then continue in a round? .... would love some help.



I believe you are referring to the instructions for the Heel Opening, that begin "Round 1 Fsc 22,...". The 22 Fsc should be worked right at the end of the last st of the Foot. Do not fasten off at the end of the Foot, immediately work 22 Fsc. Then skip the next 20 sc of the foot and sc in the next sc of the foot and continue as instructed.
