Blossom Part 3: The Pit of Despair

O.k. I re-knit the heel.

Clearly I am missing something…

I cannot find many references to this technique, and certainly no video tutorials.

Do you know of any? Can you help? please?

    Thankyou, Jenny, that’s a wrapped stitch, rather than the tightened yarnover but it looks like a good technique to follow when I have given up on this one!

    jenny: I have no idea what I did, never managed to repeat it.

    LOL yes, short-row heels seem a bit that way.
