short row heel FAIL

well, now i know how to knit a tongue cozy.  i really should stick to heel flaps.  


  1. Your sock is beautiful. I love the stripes. Have you tried an afterthought heel? They are perfect for striped socks. It might be just what you are looking for. The knitgirllls have a video tutorial. Good luck!

  2. Oh dear. Did you try it on your foot? You never know, it may stretch out to the right shape - that's what my afterthought heels look like.

  3. I have a good short row heel, but not W &T, I'll try to remember to bring the pattern to our next knit night.
    It's simple....if I can do it, you certainly can!

  4. okay, this is purl #2 as blogger gave me a dumb error with the first one...

    i used a SRH tutorial from and i just didn't get it...and i over decreased and wound up with 20 stitches instead of 30. *headdesk*

    then i used the short row heel from socks ala carte and - it has no w&t and asks you to purl through the back. since i haz teh dumbz i purled regular and that made the holes.

    i read about afterthought heels in the harlot's blog and they've intrigued me ever since - my next pair of socks, i think i'm going to try that!

    @ kristen - please bring your SRH pattern. i loathe w&t the most! :)
