I thought this soft wool would feel great wrapped around the feet, so I decided to make yet another pair - this time in a k2p1 rib with a garter stitch heel and sole.

  1. Cast on 45 sts and work 45 rounds k2p1 ribbing - 15/15/15
  2. Heel flap: Work 12 sts in pattern, put next 3 sts onto ndl 2, turn.
  3. Slip 1, p 11, p 12 on next ndl, put last 3 sts onto ndl 2, turn.
  4. Slip 1, knit to end of needle, turn.
  5. Repeat last row til 15 garter st ridges are visible from the right side, end ready to work right side.
  6. Turn heel: Knit 14 sts, k2tog, turn (leaves next 8 sts unworked).
  7. Slip 1, k 4, k2tog, turn (leaves next 8 sts unworked).
  8. Slip 1, k 5, k2tog, turn (6 sts left).
