How to knit the heel with short rows in DROPS 131-25

Tags: heel, short rows, socks,

In this DROPS video we show how to knit a separate heel with short rows for the Softstep socks in DROPS 131-25. We have already worked the top of the leg and downwards to where the piece measures 12 cm. Starting from RS:

* K 6, turn and K 5 back, inc by K 2 sts in last st on row, turn *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times.
* K 8, turn and K 6 back, dec by K tog the last 2 sts, turn *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times.
Work 1 row over all sts - insert a marker on this row - now measure piece from here.
Continue working as follows, starting from WS:
* P 6, turn and P 5 back, inc by P 2 sts in last st on row, turn *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times.
* P 8, turn and P 6 back, dec by P tog the last 2 sts, turn *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times = 18-18-19 sts.

These socks are made in DROPS Polaris, but in the video we knit with a thinner yarn; DROPS Eskimo.
