I taught this workshop at NCFF this year. It needs a few illustrations for beginning knitters (especially when it comes to picking up stitches), but I think anyone who has already done a flap-gusset heel and wants to learn a short row heel, these instructions will help.
It's a slightly different take on the usual instructions (counting the stitches left on the needle before turning, rather than the stitches in between turns), that I think makes visualization while knitting a little easier. Let me know what you all think.
The workshop has instructions for a worsted weight sock knit with size 4 or 5 needles and 48 sts. It also has a fingering weight sock pattern, with size 2 needles and 56 sts.
I want to teach this workshop again, so if you find mistakes or confusing portions, please comment so I can fix the text. Thanks.
