When you come to a new section of the pattern or a new technique put in a life line. A life line is a piece of yarn, or thread that runs through the the stitches just before the new section. This line is in addition to the yarn being knit and is left in place. If you have to rip out stitches the life line will stop the ripping and make easier to pick-up the stitches.

It is easier to pick-up the stitches with a needle smaller than the one you are knitting with. Then knit off the smaller needle to continue.

Also, I am amazed at the instructions that mysterious appear on the second and third or fourth reading of a pattern. I want to know how these extra instructions are inserted after I print the pattern.

PM = Place Marker

Again I knit toe-up so bear with me.

Needle one and three should hold your heel and gusset stitches and needle 2 your instep (top of foot) stitches. When you reach the end of needle 1 you will knit until there are three stitches left on the needle. Knit together (K2tog) the third and second stitch for the last and then knit the last stitch. You have begun to close the gusset. knit across needle 2, on needle three knit the first stitch and then knit the next 2 stitches together (K2tog). Knit the remaining stitches on needle three. Next round knit all stitches.

Repeat these two rounds until all gusset stitches have been knit and there are 44 stitches remaining on all needles.


Again you might want to review the video on turning the heel

Don't worry after you first sock is just gets easier and more addictive.

Is this your second sock? Yesterday you were asking about the gusset which would have put you beyond the heel turn. Once you have picked up the stitches for the gusset you should have 56 stitches so you are four short.

Did you have 11 stitches on needles 1 and 3 and 22 stitches on needle 2 before you started to turn the heel?

Once you completed the heel turn did you have 11 stitches on needle 1 and 3 and 14 on needle 2? A total of 36 stitches.

If you had 36 total stitches as you started to pick up stitches for the gusset, did you pick up 10 stitches on each side of the gusset? This would have given you 56 stitches.

You could have turned the heel to far and only had 10 stitches on needle 2 after the heel turn or you did not pick up enough stitches on the sides of the gusset.

And be assured that the socks do get easier after the first pair or two and they can become addictive.

In general it is not a good idea to post complete listing of patterns because of copyright requirements. It is better to post a link to the web page with the pattern. Even when it is a free on line pattern.

Z Cuff Sock

I wound look for checks at the end of each section to check my progress.

At the end of the"
Cuff there should be 44 stitches
Heel flap - 22 heel stitches and 14 rows
Hell Turn - 14 heel stitches
Gusset - pick up 10 stitches each side of the flap
- at the end 56 stitches
Shape Gusset - 44 stitches
Foot - knit until 1 inch short of foot length.

I normally use a highlighter to mark this information or write it on the side of the pattern.

By the end I have comments and notes all over the pattern.

Be aware that once you have worn hand knit socks that truly fit your feet, store bought will not do any more.

sorry everyone did not know I could not copy and past my pattern on here... I just thought if I put it on here someone else could try it, to see if they any problems with it. Should I reedit it? Or should I never show it again???? If that is how this forum works I will not get any help.....
