Mastering the Heel, Flap and Gusset – Julie Ann Lebouthillier

Maximum participants: 30

Do you find the heel flap and gusset heel intimidating? Come and join Julie Ann’s class while she walks you through step by step on how to knit this amazing heel. Bring your sock progress and turn the heel during this class. Don’t let the heel flap and gusset stop you from knitting an amazing pair of socks.

Materials Needed:
  • 32″ circular needle US 1 or 1 1/2 ; 2.25mm or 2.5mm (or your preferred method of knitting socks, DPNs or 9inch) I’m familiar with all three of these methods.  
  • 32″ circular needle 1-2 sizes bigger than your original needles to knit socks.  
  • 300-400 yards of a fingering weight yarn.  I recommend this be a lighter colour, no dark navy/blacks. 
Homework Before Class: 

I’ll want you to cast on a pair of socks cuff down to get ready to do the heel portion in class. 

Cast on 56, 64 or 72 stitches with a long tail cast on (or your preferred method) and carefully join in the round without twisting the stitches. 

Rounds 1-10: *K2, P2; Repeat from * around. 

Round 11: Knit every stitch.

Repeat Round 11 until your work measures 6”/ 15cm from the cast on edge. (Or until desired length).
