The Heel…for Lauren

December 1, 2007 at 8:18 pm | Posted in Holiday Knitting | 1 Comment

The Christmas stocking is done in the round – and where I want the heel, I stitch in waste yarn.  Then I continue to the toe.  I decrease the toe and then Kitchner to close it.  I go back to the heel and pick up the stitches top and bottom in the round.  I decrease it just like the toe and then Kitchner it to close it.  It couldn’t be simpler!  And I assume it would work on normal socks too – but I’ve not done it.

Let me know if you try it.  🙂
