pick up 10 gussets
knit the gusset pick up round twisting the pickups [and my secret slip/pass/over to eliminate gusset hole]
distribute stitches 18-9-9-18 and count the center bottom as your round markers
gusset decreases are on alternate rounds
round 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 are mirrored decrease rounds
round 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 are knit rounds
at end of round 13 redistribute stitches to: 10-10-10-10
25 foot rounds 10-10-10-10
toe decreases mirrored alternate rounds until 2-2-2-2 then slip one in middle over other in middle and put on two dpns = 3-3
thread tail through 6 sts, pull, weave, cut.
when ssk decreases - slip the 1st onto right needle normal through front to back, BUT... slip the second stitch by 'knitting into the back loop' but don't drop it off - merely fudge the tip of your left needle into the 1st slipped stitch as if to pick it up , yarn over - and knit them tog. Doing this flips the underlying slipped stitch so it lays almost as flat as a k2tog.
