How to knit a short row heel for a sock by ARNE & CARLOS


We’re here with our Pairfect yarn. If you didn’t see our previous episode, we’ve designed a yarn for REGIA called Pairfect, which allows you to knit two identical socks without looking for the beginning and the end, because it’s all there Its marked with a yellow thread that you cut and throw away And today we’re going to show you how to do the little short row heel that we do because we’re knitting… I mean, usually we like knitting socks from the top up, because then you can do a really easy heel that we’ve shown you already. We’ve done a few tutorials that you can look for on Arne & Carlos Youtube Channel. But now we’re going to do the short row heel because
for the Pairfect, you have to start from the toe Sorry, from the top, and then then go down – so it’s a top-down sock – and then you need a short row heel . Ao Arne has been gracious enough to agree to showing… So this is like one way to do a short row heel. There’s probably… (there’s many ways) … a hundred ways. But we show you one way which is easy. I just want to make two rounds of blue
before I do the heel, and we do the… like the Norwegian way, with five needles. We never do circular or magic loop. On socks we like to work on four needles or with knit with five Now you see, the sock is ready down to
the heel and then we do the the heel, this is the beginning, so we work
on two needles for the heel. So I would work on these two needles and what I do is I knit from this side and over to this side. And I what you call that? You
skip one stitch on every needle, kind of. That’s hard to say in English… no.
So I’ll show you. I just start knitting, so I knit the first needle like this So I knit all these stitches then I go on the other needle, and I knit. All of them except the last stitch One more… And I don’t knit the last one then I turn it, and I go back… and I slip the first off then I pearl back Then when I come to the next
needle I pearl all of the stitches but not the last one. And then I go back again on the knit side, and again I don’t knit the last one of the remaining stitches so then i have two leftovers. I knit this one, I leave the last one;
and then I go back again with knit. I slip the first and then I knit the rest. Then I continue knitting, knit and purl,
like this on two needles and then when I have like for this I think like six stitches left,
on each needle, like in the center, then I stop. Then that’s like that I have enough for the heel; that depends on which you are using… or the thickness of the yarn; on this one I think six is good. Then I have two left on the needle, but then you see there’s a hole in between. So then I leave this and I go back, slip this off… and I go back like this. And I go along the next again… nice. Now you done so many… like a few needles, then you see where the hole is, on your sock; so you know when you are one stitch before the hole, it’s time to turn the work and work your way back. There’s the hole, so I turn and I go back. Slip one and knit. Now, when I finish this this needles with skipping one stitch I will show you how to how to fill the hole, or knit so don’t get a hole in your sock. Again you see, there’s the hole so I knit two more, and then I turn it. Now I have three on this needle… and
I slip the first one and I pearl back Obviously I’ve been knitting back and forth, and I have these stitches that I didn’t knit So… I slip one, I purl one… two, three, four, five and six, then i go to the next needle I knit to the last stitch before the hole. (three…) When I finish this (seven…) then I turn it again… then I can start because now I have… No, I have six, I have to do one more. So I slip, I knit the next and go on this side Two, three, four, five, six… And now I have six on this and I have seven… so let me go back and make six on the last needle also. So I slip, purl the five… Going to do the other needle, and I purl the six Now, I have six left on each needle
and you can see the heel is coming Let’s see… Oh, that’s a gorgeous heel! I know… Now I have to go and knit these holes I made I have to close those holes because you don’t want that on your heel Now I’m in, I knitted up to the stitch before the hole and the stitch after the hole, so I knit these two together, I lift the stitch below the last one and I make one and I turn it around, and I pearl back to the other side and I purl all the way until I have one stitch left before the hole. Then I purl the stitch before the hole
with the stitch after the hole and I make one. Easy… (laugh…) Not really, no… (laugh) Purl from this side… to the stitch before low. Purl these two together OK, so how are we doing Arne? It’s coming! Let me see.. Oh, wow! Look at that! (the heel is coming) That’s a fabulous heel! I know… it’s just knitting two together and you
make one so I slip I’m it the rest of the stitches all the way to the other
side I think you’ve still got a couple of times and I mean there’s nothing else
to say that’s the way to do the heel basically
you sleep you need to the other side get two together make one turn around and go
back yeah yeah and if you haven’t gotten that
go onto our website there’s a pattern there we’ve written it down for you
because aren’t hasn’t said it enough times have you know so it’s there i can
say it again just watch me okay look I have to I need
one more there is one stitch before the whole one after so i need those two
together I lift the stitch below the last one like something I couldn’t lift
it whoops that always happens it happens in
the best families you know come on i lifted and I’m it okay while you keep knitting that and I
go back yeah well you keep meeting that gorgeous
heal and I just want to say a few things again about the perfect as long as
you’re knitting from the top down because that is actually the only thing
that you have to do so that perfect works as long as you do that it doesn’t
matter which he’ll you choose the heel will come out anyway and the pattern is
going to be identical if you’re using the same he’ll pattern in the in the
other sock both stocks are going to be the same the tension doesn’t matter
whatever tension you use your going to get two identical Sox anyway it’s all
amazing technology from 2016 basically and nobody else has this so you know the people that do it they
really know what they’re doing otherwise they wouldn’t do no so-so really perfect is the way to go
if you’re an advanced litter and you just want to knit something mechanically
without thinking if you are an intermediate dinner that doesn’t like
using two or three colors do the perfect and if you’re a new beginner trust us
and let me tell you something very interesting ok if you look at this now I’m purling
yes what’s happening imperiling all the way through this stitch before the whole
yeah what’s so funny is that these people okay now I get it there you see
there’s the whole sign pearl this one there’s the whole one stitch once it
probably is two together and you block the hole all you say that you close yeah you kind of yeah you get rid of the
whole Basin and I pick up the stage and I make 1i pearl new one and I turn
around and I go back again and now i’m almost there and then what do you do beyond that beyond what do you mean you
go yeah what you do when you do all the twisting and early and whatever then I
do the foot that’s what I was after and we will put the whole thing I mean the
whole pattern is is on the website anyway so you can just go there and see
the rest of what happens and if you have any doubts come here look at the
tutorial then go back to the pattern in peace and quiet so let’s see the he’ll
put it on the table put it flat let’s have a look and let’s show our
viewers what the heel is looking like if the heels coming yeah that is an amazing he’ll basically I have to say it’s
beautiful and yeah there you see and you can see another one here this is done in
a slightly ya loser attention but it’s still another he’ll be easy now isn’t it yeah i think with this you can do any
circuit and portal yeah and we hope you enjoyed the perfect nobody else is doing
this because only read you can do perfect right now so yeah just enjoy it and hopefully next
time we will have all these socks on our feet and you remember when you’re
finished here every time you need two together you should make one to fill the
holes i have to put ok it’s pearl that’s by
