3 thoughts on “German Short Row Heel

  1. I would work the foot until 2″ shorter than length of foot. For any short row heel, typically 1/3 of the sts remain unworked. I would probably leave 12 sts unworked. Happy knitting!

  2. How soon should I start this German Short Row Heal on a Toe Up Sock? For instance, for the Mitered Heel or the Afterthought Heel, it says to work the instep to 2 inches before the back of the heel; for the Gusset Heel to work the instep for 3 inches. I was just wondering how much instep to knit before you start the German Short Row Heal. And my pattern doesn’t specify which heel; each side of my sock has 32 stitches, so how many stitches should I leave for the center?
    Thank you so much for your advice! And I love your videos!

  3. Thank you so much for showing this technique… wished I had learned this long ago at Mystery sock, this is my new go to heel!!! I’ve used it on 3 pair of socks now!
