Getting ahead of myself...

…or, I probably should have posted earlier!

I should tell on myself.  I’m actually on Sock #2, but I’m woefully behind in giving instructions to you all, so, without further ado:

The Heel Gusset Section!

On RS, knit across Heel Flap. Using the same needle, pick up and knit the stitches along the left side of the Heel Flap. Tip: use a small crochet hook to pick up the stitches and put them on the needle.


Using another needle, knit across Needles 2 and 3 (30 stitches).


Using another needle, pick up the stitches along the right side of the Heel Flap. Then knit the remaining stitches on Needle 1, up to the marker.


You should end up with:

Needle 1: 9 stitches and the left side picked-up stitches

Needle 2: 30 stitches

Needle 3: the right side picked-up stitches and 9 stitches.



Knit one row around.


Decrease the gusset stitches as follows:

Needle 1: knit to last 3 sts.  K2tog, k1.

Needle 2: knit

Needle 3: k1, ssk, knit to the end of needle.


Keep decreasing the stitches on Needles 1 and 3 as above, until there are:

Needle 1: 15 stitches

Needle 2: 30 stitches

Needle 3: 15 stitches


You should end up with 60 stitches total.
