Whether you knit your socks cuff down or toe up here is the recipe to painlessly install your sock heel of choice with or without a gusset after you have knit the rest of your sock.
My Mom is the inspiration for the Forget-me-not Sock Heel Recipe. Mom learnt to knit her first pair of socks in elementary school over the course of one year. She remembers her first sock was knit cuff down complete with gusset, heel flap and heel turn. Convinced that she is the originator of the tube sock, mom decided to knit the second sock without a heel. Her teacher was not impressed with the tube sock .
This experience left my mom with a lifelong aversion to knitting sock heels.
Can you relate ?
If this is you, this might be the recipe to make your next pair of socks super fun.
The recipe refers to the following sock heel types:
Gusset, heel flap, heel turn
Short row heel or wedge heel ( traditional afterthought heel )
Hybrid heel with small gusset, short heel flap and short row heel or heel turn.
