somebody’s got a problem…

Chic Knits Knitting Blog

or not…

Is this an example of mid-summer startitis, (sock edition) or just Sombody-Loves-Turning-a-Good-Heel?

While organizing the stash for some fall designs, it was a short fall into the abyss of really pretty sock stash here at Studio Chic!

Having a plethora of #1 circular needles only aggravated the frenzy (there’s a couple of short “tubes” still at the ankle stage that didn’t make it into this picture).

Those, however are actually for a design that’s in the baby stages… :)

But I loove making a Dutch Heel with a slip-stitch flap! Send the interventionists!

 


…here’s the unscientific recipe that I wing it with…

Slip Stitch Heel Flap (worked over ~1/2 sock sts)

Row 1 (& all RSR): *Sl 1 pwise, K 1* rep across.

Row 2 (and all WSR): Sl 1 pwise, P across.

Rep last 2 rows until desired length.

 

Dutch Heel

Row 1 (RS): Sl 1 pwise, k ~2/3 of flap sts, ssk, turn.

Row 2 (WS): Sl 1 pwise, p across to 1 st before gap, p2tog, turn.

Row 3 (RS): Sl 1 pwise, k across to 1 st before gap, ssk, turn.

Rep until all sts are worked.

    Just cast on a pair of socks as a victory lap for finally finishing my Cassidy. I’ll have to test out this heel. Thanks!

    I only work one project at a time. I think I might go crazy if I tried a couple at one time. Maybe that is because I am not very experienced. or, maybe it is because I’m a smidge compulsive and need to go from A to Z without veering off on sidetracks. (Ha ha).
    But, your sock yarns are yummy!
