Shot Row Socks

Aaargh! I guess I got cocky. With a lot of encouragement, I figured out heel flaps and gussets. Short row heels are kicking my butt. Mine are hideous looking. Giant gaping holes when I pick up the twisted stitches. Obviously I’m just doing it wrong. I watched Amy’s video on short rows 10 times while I sat with my knitting, but I’m just not getting it.

I thought I understood the concept, but evidently not. I wish I had a knitter nearby to show me what I’m doing wrong.

It’s not that I don’t like socks with heel flaps, but I hate it when something whips me like this!

Maybe you could go to your yarn/craft store and ask someone there to help. :??

Take a look at this link - Japanese Short Rows – a bit different than how Amy demonstrates, and much much easier for me to follow and know what and how to pick up.

Good luck!!


THANKS, Knitqueen. I’m going to give that a try. It certainly seems easier than wrapping.

I appreciate the link!
