  1. I think there’s a typo in the pattern. I just finished turning the heel. The pattern says:

    “Sl 1, P4, P2tog, P1, turn (2 sts unworked)

    Sl 1, K1, k2tog, K1, turn (2 sts unworked)

    Sl 1, P2, P3tog, P1, turn

    Sl 1, K3, K2tog, K1, do not turn”

    In that third row down, I think it’s supposed to read:

    ‘Sl 1, P2, P2tog (instead of P3), P1, turn’

    When I tried doing it per the pattern, there weren’t enough stitches on that needle.
    Feel free to delete this comment after you’ve read it. I just wanted to alert you to the problem.
