If you need to review any lessons, links are available in the KAL Introduction. If you would like a printable copy of the entire pattern, the Whale Done Socks Pattern is available in my shop.
Lesson 5: Shadow Wrapped Short Row Sock HeelsIf you have already knit the first half of your sock heel, you are probably starting to see why this is my favorite heel technique. It's so quick and easy! The second half of the heel is just as nice.
Now it's your turn!
Remember, the first four rows (repeated a few times) were worked in the previous lesson. Also, tw st stands for twin stitch and tr st stands for triplet stitch.
Row 5 (RS): K to first tw st, k both strands of the tw st together, tr st in next tw st, turn.
Row 6 (WS): P to first tw st, p both strands of the tw st together, tr st in next tw st, turn.
Row 7: K to tr st, k all strands of tr st together, tr st in next tw st, turn.
Row 8: P to tr st, p all strands of tr st together, tr st in next tw st, turn.
Repeat Row 7-8 until one tr st remains on each side of the heel.
