Okay so have you gotten your three inches? I have not but I am going to start doing the heel for you. What we are going to be looking at is that we are finishing normally where we always do because I am right handed. We finished on the left hand side before we started another row. So now it is time to mark up this loom in order to start the heel and what we need to do is that there are twenty four pegs but this is standard for anyone.
What we need to do is divide it in half so if you have an eighteen peg, you will have nine. If you have this twenty four, you will have twelve and etcetera etcetera so just divide it in half. So what we need to do is that we need to mark the first one, and this was the one right up top where we have left off. So remember I said that you are going to need at least two of this? I lied. You are going to need at least four. I am going to grab my crochet needle to help me out but you could use other methods if you want to so I am just going to stick my material down in using my crochet hook.
What I want to do is I want to mark where the pegs are, so did you notice I went underneath? So because I want to just tie them not in a knot. You can if you want to but I would not recommend it so there is one, okay so there is one. So now we want to count the twelve and that makes sense, right? If you look at it, it is half a loom, so let us mark this one. So I am going to put it up underneath and we are going to tie this one here. So Michael why do we need four, like I just said? Well, the reality is that we have to decrease our stitches in order to create the heel but we decrease it only to the maximum number of four so when we look at the loom now, you have it this side and this side. We have to then and this will actually be the heel area right here, the absolute minimum.
So let us go over so four-four. So we want four right in the center, so let us go one. Okay so these four right in the center are going to be your saving points so let us mark the first one with a marker. So when we go to decrease, so we are going to come back one. So we want to mark them because then we will know for sure exactly where the fourth one is and I guess this does not really makes sense what I am telling you right now but trust me and then you are going to want to know where the fourth one is when we get to it.
So let us tie that, these are just little secrets so then we want the fourth one on this side so you can go one, two, three and four. Let us tie that and before you go on to the next video I am going to have to go get my Christmas sock to show you what happens if you do not do it the way that I am going to show you. So your loom is then marked, so you got twelve, one, two and then these ones here, so you got one, two, three, and four and that is right in the halfway point. So that is your next step, let me go get the Christmas sock and I will be right back to continue.
