A Couple of Heels

August 13, 2007 § 2 Comments

Do you know hard it is to take a picture of your own feet?!

These two socks are part of pairs in progress at the moment. And they both include my new-found heel love. It’s similar to the K1, s1 heel flap for most top-down knit socks. The difference is that the next row, alternate by starting with a s1, K1 across the front. It ends up looking like a seed stitch and feels ever-so-slightly less bulky than the usual K1, s1 heel.

This is a heel variation described in the book Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. And I added the 3-stitch garter edging as well. So… in a pattern it might look like this:

Rows 1 and 3 (WS): K3, purl to end of row.
Row 2: P3, *K1, sl1, rep from * to the last 3 sts, K3
Row 4: P3, *sl1, K1, rep from * to last 3 sts, K3.
Rep rows 1-4 until you have 32 heel-flap rows, end by working RS row.
