Hope that helps! Thanks very much, Jenny xx PS - Not sure if it makes any difference, but I'm knitting with 72 stitches total, and increased the number of purl stitches in the first row of the heel turn from P16 to P Everything is so good, thank you for your hard work. There's no hard and fast rule, you'll find that the more you do, the easier it is for you to find the way that works best for you. Hello there! I hope that helps! Winwick Mum 1 May at You'll need to go back to your heel flap and knit that again, leaving your main working yarn still attached and then when you've turned the heel, pick up your main yarn and knit the gusset using that one. The second tranche was advanced as an interest-free loan, to be converted to shares subject to shareholder approval at a meeting next week. Happy knitting everyone, see you next week for the final tutorial!
Winwick Mum 9 January at I am wondering if this should be 4" rather than 2"? My question is: am I suppose to adapt this number to my 30 stitches? Hi there - thanks so much for the very clear instructions! Take the quiz Spell It Can you spell these 10 commonly misspelled words? So there you go - your sock should be looking more like a sock now! I have now finished my heel and turn and picked up all the stitches and am back with all my stitches on my small circular needle.
Dear Mum, I am still having so much trouble decreasing my gusset. I am wondering if this should be 4" rather than 2"? Winwick Mum 1 February at I wouldn't worry too much about the number of stitches on your needle at this point as long as you don't have any holes unless you really want to take it back to see if you've missed one - you will even it all out when you return to your original number of stitches after the gusset. Time to congratulate yourself on a job well done! Hello there, late to the sockalong and, indeed to knitting socks in general. I don't think you ever mention it specifically but I think you had about 32 stitches for 4" for your tension square which typically at least for me means that the number of rows for 4" is a little larger - that kind of agrees with 35 rows for your heel flap. Basically, the markers should be either side of the top of your foot stitches and you decrease on the heel side next to the markers so that might help to get you going again! Thanks, Lil!
I think I might have the same problem. Lil xx. This gives a neat decrease on the outside of your heel.
Take the quiz Return of Name that Color! I don't understand how to split? Thanks a lot! I usually keep the top of the foot stitches together on one needle and then split my loops around the gusset stitches - I've usually got two loops which I move around as the number of stitches changes.

- I think you're using a gradient yarn that blends from one colour to the next and when it does this at the gusset, it's very obvious.

- What I love most is that it is scaleable so it is easy to adjust for different tension or different yarn.

Increasing the stitches between the decreases simply means increasing the number of stitches that you knit or purl, not actually making a new stitch - so, the first row is k5, then P6, K7, P8, K9, P10, K11, P12, etc until you run out of stitches to decrease. Sorry if this is very stupid, I have not slipped stitches yet, so I'm not sure if that is correct. Chiara blackbird 3 January at Hi, Christine, the purl row ended with the P2tog, so that was the last side stitch if I understand it correctly. Once you have picked up the stitches, knit across the top of the foot using DPNs three and four which were holding the stitches then pick up and knit 19 stitches or more or less if required up the other side of the heel flap and then knit across the top of the heel so that your yarn is in the right place to start round 1 of the gusset. I slide knitwise on knit rows and purlwise on purl rows.
You can choose to leave your stitches on needles 3 and 4 as shown:. I hope that helps! If you're on Facebook, you might want to join the Sockalong group as there will be plenty of help and encouragement there as you get started :- xx. Note that you will have more or less than 18 stitches left on your needle when you have worked all the decreases if you make the sock bigger or smaller. Put the right hand needle purlwise into the second stitch on the left hand needle and slip it onto the right hand needle. Samanta brevoort 24 February at You should find that you finish on an SSK stitch and have 18 stitches left on your needle. Thank you. Perhaps someday you might but all this in a simple published volume? Ziggy 5 November at
