Too little insightful commentary; too many pictures of what I'm knitting.
So i posted on raverly as well cause you know i like to stalk a little in my spare time, this isn't a matermind sock question but a Evil Genius Question... Thanks for the free pattern BTW. I have a question or two and wanted to know In turning the heel the instructions say to K to 2 stitches before the end of heel stitches. M1, K1 W&TP4 place marker..... M1, K1 W&TK4 place market... etcBeing all noob at this i went with the detailed instructions which insead of the 4 stitches its 3K to 2 stitches before the end of heel stitches. M1, K1 W&TP**3** place marker..... M1, K1 W&TK**3** place market... etcthis is where i as what do i do?Right time for the other question...My orginal circumference (nice maths btw) is 52 stitches therefore following the evil heel chart I should end up with 24 heel flap stitches BUT i can only get to 22 with out my turning markers ending up trying to hump each other. What do i do?
Whoops. Sorry about the inconsistency between pattern and detail. I'll correct that. On larger circumferences, I think it's better to work 4 stitches after the turn before placing your marker. But as you've found, with fewer stitches, you might run out of stitches before completing all your turns for the flap (even working just 3 stitches).Since you'll want to work your heel flap over 24 stitches, you can either:1. Work your last 2 (very) short rows without markers: M1, K1, W&T, P3, M1, P1, W&T.-or-2. Decide to be done with short rows, but move your heel markers one stitch away from each other.Either way, you want to have 24 stitches between heel markers before proceeding.
