somebody’s got a problem…
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.
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.
