Turn Heel (Magic Loop)

The turn heel is my favorite part of the sock heel. Just a few quick turns and a cozy heel cup emerges. Check out how easy this technique becomes with the magic loop method.

    I am so glad I stumbled across your blog! Your videos are really helpful, clear and well explained – I wish I’d seen the Picot Hem one a day earlier though, as I’d just struggled with such a hem for an ankle sock I was making! Anyway, a question about the turn heel: is there a reason for doing an SKPsso on the Knit side when you get to the gap instead of a K2tog (tbl if desired)?? Does this combine better (aethestically) with the P2Tog on the purl side??

    Many many thanks for your site and best wishes,

    I’m happy you found me! I use a slip, knit, psso decrease because it is a left leaning decrease (direction we want stitch to slant) where a k2tog is a right leaning decrease. Please check out my KALs for more fun and education!

    Thank you so much! I am new at knitting socks. I have read the directions for turning the heel many times, but after watching your video they finally make sense! 🙂
