One more question. Winwick Mum 7 April at Play the game. You should have placed a marker over your needle when you got to the end of your top of the foot stitches and before you started to pick up your second set of gusset stitches - that's your SECOND marker where you will do your SSK decrease. Just take your time and it will all fit together. Im a bit baffled, I'm on done and have got to Page 59,shaping the gusset.. And that's it for this week! Faye from California 11 September at This is my first attempt at knitting besides the tension square you suggested and I'm amazed that I've made it this far!
I don't think it matters that much with a heel flap, although you do have to be careful on the purl row as the stitch will twist - I actually quite like the look of that and usually knit my socks that way but it's personal preference!

Continue in this way, decreasing by two stitches at the gusset on every other row one on each side until there are 60 stitches or whatever number you cast on on the needle. Hi Ziggy!

The heel stitch that you have used creates a reinforced, cushioned heel, which is more comfortable and durable than plain knitting.

- Hi there - thanks so much for the very clear instructions!
- Happy knitting everyone, see you next week for the final tutorial!

Hi, Christine, the purl row ended with the P2tog, so that was the last side stitch if I understand it correctly. I am using 4dpns and am a little confused at which point, having picked up the stitches either side of the heel flap, do I reduce down to 3dpns, please? As always, please do ask questions if you're stuck, either here on the blog or through the Facebook or Ravelry groups.
