Making socks without a pattern
So being the go getter that I am, I decided to work my first sock without a pattern because they all seemed to small. Well now I am stuck on how to turn the heel, I am not sure how many rows to use and how many to purl and so forth.

If anyone has any suggestions that would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

April

This is what I use. Make sure you save it/print it out as about half way through the month the site goes down due to so many people accessing it.
