Now keep the first 18-22-22 (22-26) sts on needle for heel and slip remaining 26-26-26 (30-30) sts on a stitch holder = upper foot. Continue back and forth on heel sts in stockinette st for 3-3½-4 (4-4½) cm [1 1/8”-1 ¼”-1½” (1½”-1 ¾”)]. Insert a marker in piece. Now dec for heel – SEE ABOVE. After heel dec pick up 8-9-10 (11-12) sts on each side of heel and slip sts from stitch holder back on needles = 50-54-56 (62-66) sts on round.
