Oh, and one other problem... how do you go back to stitching in the round? Because when you're crocheting into what used to be the sides of the heel... it's just a mess of edging.

Ugh. I MUST be doing something wrong!

I've not looked at the pictures closely enough to know how the seam shows or doesn't. If you don't like the way the heel turns out you can do a gusseted heel in crochet, the nice part being you don't need stitch holders. You know to crochet into the ends of the rows when you go back to working in the round, right? I decided I didn't like the way it was working out and I've ripped back to add some stitches to make a sort of gusset on each side before I work the flat part for the heel. Now I'm trying to figure out the placement for the increases.

Don't feel bad that it didn't make sense to you, I had to do it before I understood.

I hope you post a photo. I would when I'm done but I don't have a camera.

What yarn are you making the real ones up in? I think you said you're still using practice yarn.

Now I'm thinking that if I make the first flat row longer then work decreases I might get the same effect. Short rows from knitting crossing over to crochet and I think to try it. Who'd a thunk it?

Probably not.

You posted while I was typing and thinking. You crochet into the ends of the rows. Youtube has lots of videos, you could probably find one that makes it easy to see.

Good luck you two! I wouldn't even bother trying to convert it...I'd just find another pattern. I'm not that adventurous I guess.

Thanks, Jan. You're right of course, it isn't worth the bother. Still, I want to know if it will work and I guess I'm too lazy to look for an actual pattern. I don't recall ever being accused of having good sense.

I gave in and ordered the Sunstruck needle set from Knit Picks, I can hardly stand to wait for them to come home. Maybe that's why I'm messing around with crochet tonight.

No idea... can you point me to one? I've been searching but I don't know the right terms, so nothing is coming up.

It's an Icelandic wool -- I'm doing it in a dark grey. That is, when/if I can ever get this figured out.

The part of the video you want is after she turns the corner, watch where she puts the hook.

I agree with all the other "helpers". I personally think it would be very hard, very futzy, to accomplish. But not impossible.
