Hi, I’m Marshall M. I’ve tried several methods of sock knitting, and am now trying the Magic Loop. I like it alot no more dropped needles). However, I have a heel turn question After I make the heel flap, and when turning the heel, what is the number of stitches I should be using, and would it help to mark the ‘middle’ of the heel to determine this number. Assuming that Koigu is used, and size 1 needles are used, and for a size 6 1/2 foot, I would use 60 cast on stitches. Then use 1/2 stitches for heel flap. The 2 books I have read on this are unclear to me (I’m a fairly new knitter), so I’m stuck. Can any help me with this number, is there a ‘formula’, or an educational link that would be helpful?
Thanks…a sock knitting addict.
