SHADOW WRAP SHORT ROW HEEL CUSTOMIZATION
This pattern also contains a section on how to customize the shadow wrap short row heel for any yarn weight or sock size. Now you can substitute this heel in any sock pattern no matter the size or weight of the yarn you are using! See pages 8 and 9 for details.

7 (8, 9) inches/18 (20, 23) cm

NOTE ON SIZE
The sizes are based on foot circumference (measured around the ball/widest part of the foot). I recommend choosing the size that will give you 1-2 inches/2-5 cm of negative ease for the best fit. Leg and foot length are customizable.

6 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch

NEEDLES
