How do you make a heel with 32 stitches?
Divide half of your stitches* onto 1 needle (or 2 if you like my method of starting on more to avoid stretching). Leave the other stitches on 1-2 needles, untouched. *If you’re working with 64 stitches, that means you’ll be working 32 sts. For a heel turn starting with 16 sts, the heel turn is complete.

Can you walk with stitches on top of foot?
Stay Off Your Foot
