Turning Heel

by Channing Thompson
(Kansas)

My instructions are as follows and I cannot figure it out:

Using 3 DPNs, reposition 30 heel sts such that there are 10 on each needle. The 2nd needle is the working needle when turning the heel therefore work the following rows on the center needle and incorporate stitches from side needles, 1 and 3 as indicated:

Row 1 RS- knit until 1 st remains on working needle, K2TOG using the remaining ST on the working needle and the first ST on the side holding the needle.

Row 2 WS- purl until 1 st remains on working needle, P2TOG using the remaining ST on the working needle and the first ST on the side holding the needle.
Cont until all 30 STS have been worked on these three needles.

Turning heel
by: Ratchadawan

Hello Channing,

Thank you for your question and visiting. I've looked at your question this morning and it's a good question. I'm sure many knitters have faced this same problem. It gave me a motivation to make a video and show it to you and for those who needs to know about the turning heel part.

Here is a video I made on turning heel.




I hope you find it helpful. Have a great evening!

Ratcha
