Short Row Heels

... there are six unworked stitches (or however many you choose) between the sloped edges. I recommend looking at the "Simple Socks" book to figure out how many stitches should be unworked. It really depends on the sock size.

This photo shows the first half of the heel after all rows have been worked. Notice that there are stitch/yarn-over pairs on each needle. Now that we are at the halfway point the rows will start to get longer to work all those remaining stitches.

Knit to up to the first yarn-over loop and knit it together with the next stitch. Turn to the purl side.
