|Continue to push one needle on the side opposite the carriage back to FWP before knitting the next row until only the last needle on the left edge remains in HP. RC = 080, COR. Push last needle back to FWP. Pick up bobby pin that is hanging directly below it. Holding bobby pin straight up above needle, hang loop on bobby pin on needle in FWP. Remove bobby pin. There are now a stitch, a wrap, and a loop on this needle. Knit to left. Hang claw weights behind work.|
(Next pic is of a green sock to show detail more clearly.)
Before beginning to knit each row, pick up the next bobby pin that is hanging below the last needle on the opposite edge and put the loop on that needle. Remove bobby pin, knit. Continue knitting and hanging loops until RC = 107, COL.
When you pick up the knitting with the remaining pins, you can see that the toe, sole, and upper foot are already seamed. Count remaining bobby pins: There should be 19 on the right side, 18 on the left side. Do not hang any more loops until after heel is shaped.
|Put outside needle on the right edge into HP. Knit to right.|
|SHAPE HEEL: RC = 108, COR Continue shaping heel, putting needle on
opposite side of carriage into HP as previously for toe and wrapping yarn
around needle till RC = 115, COL.
Wrap yarn around last needle in HP and push the needle last wrapped on the opposite side of the carriage back to FWP. Knit to the right. Continue to push one needle on the side opposite the carriage back to FWP before knitting the next row until one needle on the left and one needle on the right edge remain in HP. RC = 121, COL.
Push last needle on right edge to FWP. Pick up bobby pin directly below needle and hang loop on same needle. Remove bobby pin. Knit to the right. Move claw weights to back of work. Push last needle on left edge to FWP. Hang loop. Knit to the left. Continue to knit, always hanging loop from bobby pin on edge needle opposite of carriage until RC = 158, COR.
Hang last loop from each side on the outside needles.
|Knit one manual row of large stitches by putting a strip of ½" wide cardboard behind the needles. Form stitches by pulling the needles back against the strip. Put a clip on yarn tail to keep end stitch from getting larger.|
