Loosely cast on 64 stitches, join in a ring and be careful not to twist stitches. Divide the stitches evenly on four needles (16 stitches on each needle).
Knit the following five rounds as follows:
k1 – p2 – k2 – p2 – k2 – p2 – k2 – p2 – k1
Knit the leg for five repetitions of the main charts or till the desired leg height is reached.
As the short-row heel is slightly shorter than a “usual” heel, I always knit a heel flap when using this heel in a pattern. Heel flap: In the following 4 rounds knit the stitches on the first and the fourth needle in stockinette stitch and continue the main pattern on needle two and three.
After finishing the heel-flap rounds knit a short-row heel.
If you prefer to knit a “usual” heel with a long heel flap you may continue the main pattern 2 on needle 1 and needle 4.
Continue knitting in stockinette stitch on needle one and four and in main pattern 1 on needles two and three until desired length (here ~ 21 cm from heel).
The toe is knit in stockinette stitch.
1. needle: knit until there are 3 stitches left, k2tog, knit the last stitch
2. needle: knit one stitch, SSK, knit the remaining stitches
3. needle: knit until there are 3 stitches left, k2tog, knit the last stitch
4. needle: knit one stitch, SSK, knit the remaining stitches
Continue in that way until there are 5 stitches remaining on each needle.
Use the kitchener stitch to graft the toe closed and weave in ends.
