Basic Toe Up Sock - Provisional Cast On

The provisional or temporary cast on is used when you will knit from the foundation row, in the opposite direction, at a later stage of construction. It may be used in a toe-up sock, when adding ribbing to the lower edge of a garment or when you will be picking up stitches from the foundation row to work later. One of the dresses I recently knitted has cross-wise bands of cables; using a provisional cast on helps avoid bulk where the two end seams are joined in the round. The provisional cast on results in a smooth transition between sets of stitches. Read more .... for fully illustrated article and instructional videos.

Basic Sock - Turning Heel

Turning HeelTurning HeelThe turning heel consists of short rows to shape the curve around the heel. The stitches in the middle are knitted, with paired decreases fanning out from the center, as the outer stitches are brought into the pattern. The travelling, paired decreases form a triangle which fits around your heel and the outer stitches form the curve. This section knits up very quickly.

The term short row, is a row in which you do not knit completely across. For the heel, it is bordered with slip stitches on either end, whose function is to visually blend stitches to form a smooth transition with the regular stitches on the ends of the row.

Basic Sock - Heel Flap

Heel FlapHeel FlapThe basic sock pattern uses a French heel--a slip-stitch, honeycomb pattern that provides comfort, fit and durability. For the heel flap, you will be working with only 30 stitches and a 2.0 mm circular needle. The stitches are worked back and forth on the single needle for a total of 30 rows. A chain stitch selvage makes it easy to later see and pick up stitches for the gusset.
