Working the heel of a Sock
How to turn the heel, pick up gusset stitches, and decrease gusset. Follows pattern of North Country Cotton Baby/Toddler socks (free in patterns page). Also similar to patterns in The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns, and many other basic top-down socks. This video ends a little abruptly. The last words are "And now we're at the end of our decreases."
I also have a longer video of making this sock from beginning to end, including casting on, using DPN's, changing colors, dividing for the heel, working the heel (as shown in the video here, but including more of the action), decreasing for the toe, kitchener stitch bind-off, and weaving in the end. This video is too big to put on this site, but is included in the site CD.* http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...ed_techniques/
