socks: short-row heels
Posted by: craftsman (IP Logged)

I'm learning to knit socks. (I'm making bed socks for practice, because no one will see them under the blanket).

But I haven't found a method for short row heels that gives results I'm happy with. I've tried methods from various web sites: wrap, no-wrap, double-wrap, knit through back loop, knit together and "make 1", etc. Sometimes there are holes, sometimes one side looks good but the other doesn't... I'm just not satisfied so far.

I'd like to hear from experienced sock knitters about your method for short-row heels and what works best for you. Thanks.
