HOW TO KNIT A SHORT ROW HEEL

In this week’s tutorial, we show you how to knit a short row heel, which will work perfectly on the Regia Pairfect socks. It’s probably just as easy as doing an afterhought heel, so why not give this one a try?

 

 

Here is the pattern for the short row heel, explained:

Work heel over 2 sts, back and forth,  since the pattern is in the yarn you can work on needle 1 and 2 = 32

Ndl 1: k31

Ndl 2: sl 1, p30.

Ndl 3: sl 1, k29

Ndl 4: sl 1, p28

Ndl 5: sl 1, k27

Continue needles purlwise and knitwise like this, turn work when last sts before a sl sts is kntted or pearled.

Ndl 19: sl 1, k13

Ndl 20: sl 1, p12

Work now back and forth until 1 st before gap, k2tog knitwise and p2tog purlwise ( 1 st before gap and 1 st after gap tog ).  M1 st in leg on st under the last st of 2tog:

Ndl 21: sl 1, k11, k2tog, M1 knitwise, in the upper leg on the st under the last st of k2tog.

Ndl 22: sl 1, p12, p2tog, M1 purlwise in the upper leg on the st under the last st of p2tog.

Ndl 40: sl 1, p31.

Start knit stockinette on the round again from here:

Rnd 1: sl 1, k63

Rnd 2: k64

Knit as many rnd as you need for the length of the foot, decrease in the sides on the toe like this:

Rnd 1: ( k1, 2tog, k26, 2tog, k1 ) around.

Rnd 2: k60

Rnd 3: ( k1, 2tog, k24, 2tog, k1 ) around.

Rnd 4: k56

Rnd 4: ( k1, 2tog, k22, 2tog, k1 ) around.

Rnd 6: k52

Rnd 7: ( k1, 2tog, k20, 2tog, k1 ) around.

 

Continue decreasing on every second rnd until you got 4sts left on each needle,

Sew the last 16sts together with Kitchener sts, 8sts on top of foot sewn together with 8sts under foot.

 

ENJOY!
