7 thoughts on “Turn Heel (Magic Loop)

  1. I have a video on two at a time socks using short row heels. It sounds as if you are using the traditional heel, so I think the best option is to place one sock on a holder and rejoin them once the heels are finished. Happy knitting!

  2. I was hoping to learn how to manage two socks doing the magic loop with your videos. After I finish the heel flap with sock #1, what do I do with it while knock #2? And how do I get back to #1 for turning the heel?

    Thank you!

  3. 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! 🙂

  4. 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!

  5. 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,
