Since I’m trying to catch up on my knitting projects and I don’t want to bore the non-spinners with a second spinning post in a row, here’s some of my favorite links about sock heels!
A Heel and Toe for Every Purpose (pdf) An overview of some commonly used heels and toes. I particularly like the “round/French heel” and use that in almost all my sock patterns.
Toe-Up Gusseted Heel – This toe-up heel places the flap along the bottom of the foot and the gusset decreases move up the ankle. I used this heel on my first sock pattern, the Shenandoah socks, although it’s hard to tell in black.
Short Row Heel – A slightly different way to do a short row heel with no wraps. Just found this one- I have to try it next time I do a short row heel!
