GAUGE
12 sc + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.
 

STITCH EXPLANATION
sc2tog (sc dec) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.
 

NOTES
1. Heel begins by working over 20 sts – one half of the total sts of the leg. These are the heel sts. The remaining 20 sts are the leg sts. You will work on the leg sts again later.
2. In Rows 2 and 3 of heel shaping, you will leave 6 sts unworked at the end of each row.
3. On Row 4 of the heel shaping, you will work across the same 8 sts worked on Row 3, then sc into the next sc of the row below (this is one of the 6 sts left unworked in Rows 2 and 3). This will add one st to the heel for a total of 9 sts for the heel.
4. Continue to repeat Row 4, adding one st at the end of each row by working 1 of the unworked sts in the row below until you have 20 heel sts.
5. Your piece will be a long tube for the cuff and leg, the heel will look like a small cup extending from the leg tube.
6. Work continues in the round for the foot.
7. On Rnd 1 of the foot, you will work over the 20 sts of the heel, then sc into the ends of the rows (the side edge of the heel tab), work the 20 leg sts, and sc into the ends of the rows (on the other side edge of the heel), to prepare to work in the round again.
