Work the heel over the next 36 sts, placing the other sts on a stitch holder.

Work a short row heel, directions for which can be found here.

Author's Note: This shows the technique for toes, but it is the same as for heels, except for the cast on--you already have your stitches. You can also use this for the toes of top down socks--kitchener stitching the toe seam on the underside of the sock.

When the heel has been turned, put stitches from the stitch holder back on your needles.

Work in stockinette stitch in the round until the piece measures about 2" (5.08 cm) short of the tips of the toes.

The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
