Wrap and Turn

Sock (Make 2)

With dpn’s, cast on 32 sts. Divide sts onto 3 needles (16 sts on first needle and 8 sts on the other 2) and join, being careful not to twist sts.  Mark for beg of rnd and carry marker up.  Knit 1 rnd.

* Inc Rnd:  On first needle, k1, yo, k to last st on needle, yo, k1; on second needle, k1, yo, k to end; on third needle, k to last st, yo, k1 – 36 sts.  Knit 1 rnd.  Rep from * 6 times more – 60 sts.  Work even in St st (k EVERY rnd) until piece measures 1 1/2” shorter than total length needed from tip of toe to outside of heel. 

Next Rnd:  K30 sts of first needle, k15 sts from second needle and 15 sts from third needle onto same needle.  Note:  When working Short Row Heel you will be working back and forth over the 30 sts on second needle.  The 30 sts on first needle will remain unworked.

Row 3 (RS):  K to 1 st before marker, wrap and turn while dropping marker, place marker.

Reverse Short Row Shaping:  Row 1 (RS): K to marker, * drop marker, sl the next wrapped st to RH needle; with the point of LH needle, lift wrap up onto RH needle and back over wrapped st; sl st and it’s wrap back to LH needle; * knit wrap and st tog; wrap and turn(this next st is now a double wrapped st), place marker.

Row 2 (WS):  P to marker, rep between *’s of Row 1; purl wrap and st tog; wrap and turn (this st is now a double wrapped st), place marker.

Row 3 (RS):  K to marker, ** drop marker, sl the next double wrapped st to RH needle; with the point of LH needle, lift both wraps up onto RH needle and back over double wrapped st; sl st and both wraps back to LH needle; ** knit both wraps and st tog; wrap and turn, place marker.

Row 4 (WS):  P to marker, rep between **’s of Row 3, purl both wraps and st tog; wrap and turn, place marker.  Rep Rows 3 and 4 until all sts have been worked and all markers have been dropped, end on WS – 30 sts.

Next Rnd:  K8 sts with second needle, k8 sts with third needle, place marker – 60 sts.  Note:  From here, work around on 60 sts as before heel.  Work even in St st for 4 rnds.
