The first pic is the back and the second pic is the front. If it is too dark let me know and I can retake them...

Well I looked really close at the enlarged pictures and I count 13 stitches in the gusset. Also on the side with the white stitch marker, it looks like you did 1 stitch after the marker before the increases, but on the side with the red marker you did them right after. But really it *looks* fine, so I would keep going.

Here is what I would do. Starting at the red marker, knit 12, turn and purl back 11, turn and knit 11. Then pick up the stitches on the side of that and follow the leg instructions as written, except that when you come to the center front, knit 2 additional stitches before joining with the back to complete the leg circle.

When you come time to graft the legs, you'll graft 11 stitches instead of 10, and it will have put 1 stitch on each side of your gusset onto the legs, which shouldn't make any difference (although if you're worried about yarn, or the circumference of the legs, you can knit 2 together at the inseam once or twice up at the beginning of the leg).

I hope that makes sense. Let me know if it doesn't!

Thanks, I will try that. It doesn't make sense now, but I am sure I will figure it out when I am going along. On the side with the white marker, before the last row of increases it fell off so I had to guess where it went and after I realized I had it in the wrong place when I was counting the rows.

Ok, I am lost... I ending the pattern at the white marker, (where I started) which is the back... Do I do the same thing k12 p11 k11, then still knit 2 additional stitches before joining when I get to the front red marker?

I thought the red marker was the back...?

Now *I'm* confused.

I started at the white marker, then added the red afterwards. I did the shortrows on the side I started with which is now the back. So do I just do what you had suggested but just start at the white (back)?

Knit Wit said...

OK sorry I misunderstood. The place where you start is the back, so that would be the white marker.

Yeah I think pretty much the same thing, except that your white marker is placed 1 stitch too far to the right, so do 1 stitch before doing what I said.
