You can try the sock on to check length by
slipping your heel into the cup-shaped heel
formed by the short rows, and laying the work
along the sole of your foot. Make a note of
how many rows have been worked for the sole.

Work from * to * as for Heel and Sole. Be sure
to work the same number of rows for the instep
as you worked for the sole.
Join for Leg
Note: When joining the back and front of the
sock in the step which follows, you will be working
into the first row of sts worked with the working
yarn, at the beginning of the heel. To obtain
the right number of sts, it will be necessary
to pick up an extra st in a loop adjacent to the
first or last st of the row.
The waste yarn will be removed from these
sts during the finishing process.
Be certain that sock is not twisted!
