Knitting Socks (part 2 of 2)

Turning the heel is the next process in making the heel. During turning the heel, you have to organize the stitches on three needles according to the pattern that you are following. You can also check the equation for number of stitches for turning the heel. To make this process easier, imagine that the size of your heel has been divided into three sections.

You are keeping the center portion in one piece, taking one stitch from every side panels systematically, and knitting it jointly with the stitch on the external tail of the center panel. Thus, the sock under the heel includes dipping the outside and keeping the center unchanged.

One should remember that the socks should be fitted inside shoes. They will spend much of time chafing your foot. Therefore, while knitting socks be aware of this thing. Select the fibers cautiously. Wool is better for feet and its natural softness helps the sock hold one’s foot in a warm fit.

Fibers that have less elasticity like silk, cotton, soy may stretch out of shape after some time. Thus, knitting socks is an art and one should make sure all these things before starting the process.
