Short row heels
I am sooooooooo stuck! I have read -knitted, ripped out and re-knitted and ripped out so often that my sock heel will be worn out before I ever get this sock completed.

I don't think I understand the concept of wrapping and sadly I do not seem to be able to recognize a wrapped stitch when I knit back on the next row.

Any wisdom out there?

Hiya anna,
When I do my short row heels I always use the Sherman sock heel and toe. here's the link to it for ya.
This pattern is very easily adapted to any even count of stitches.
If you have any questions on how to adapt the technique let me know and I'll do my best to help you.
