So now, looking at the thing, we want it to be about eight inches and there you go. There is my eight inches. So now, what we are going to do is that we are going e-wrap again and we are going to go not only a partial of the round. So now, we are going to continue to go. I had a major screw up during this tutorial and I actually had a back out and reset and everything, that is a pain in the ass ladies and gentlemen, pain in the ass and you know I brag about how you can never screw up with illuminating and there you go. I assumed that I knew what I was doing and you know what, never assume.
So, what we want to do is we want to look. The knob is the center point and so we are creating the heel so we want to go to the seventh before it so one, two, three, four, five, six, and seven. So, we just want to e-wrap this all the way to the seventh, okay but before we go to the seventh, we want to add the next color. I am going to do a color change for the actual stunning effect of it so we are going to take the next two strings that we are using together so I am just making my slipknot like I normally would and I am not too worried about the straggler length and that is the loose ends. And I am going to put it on the seventh one and notice where I am putting it. I am putting it before I am e-wrapping the final okay. So in this case, so we are going to e-wrap the final.
So now, what we are going to take is our hook and we are going to go backward so over and over okay so now we have just got the color started. We are going to pull that nice and tight and let us just e-wrap all the way back.
Now, this is like a crochet along. This particular point, it might be a little bit a over lengthy video but heels are very—in writing, they are very tough to understand what they are saying but I am going to try to explain it to you the best way I know how. I am just going to move the loom that is in behind because it is catching. Now that the sock is getting bigger and bigger, it is a little more of a challenge to operate with it. So, we are now ready to do the heel part and it is not very complicated. So, this is the seventh so what we are going to do is that where the center point, when I say the center point, on the right side it is right there and on the left side it is right there. So, what we are going to do is e-wrap all the way to the center point so I am not counting because I have already counted I knew that is the seventh. So, we are going to come to the middle one that is on the right hand side of the actual knob and so what we want to do is go over and wrap to the sixth one so we are going to count one, two, three, four, five and six.
Now, if you have never flat paneled a loom before on these things, it is so simple. What you got to just do is just pull over the top, pull over the top if that one is a little tough but they get started. And we are now going to pull over all the rest then just work our way backward. See, if you are doing scarves, this is called flat panel looming and where you are only using a portion of the actual loom so just because it is round, it does not mean you have to go all the way around. So, we just went over and we counted over to the sixth and if you have seen the video on me demonstrating how to do these heels then you will know that what we need to do is come back now to the center point. So, we are going to come back this direction we have not done that so we are just going to come under and up and then back down. So, under and up and back down, under and up and just work your way to the center point. So now, what we are going to do is go over to the fifth one of the peg. Okay so they’re back at the center so one, two, three, four, five, so this is the fifth one. So just like before, we are just going to pull that over. And now, we are going to just go back and pull them all back over. So, that was number five.
Now ladies and gentlemen, if it is easier for you to write down because it is not always easy to remember if you have the last one was a four or five or whatever. So, if it is easier just keep a pen and paper with you so you remember just in case somebody calls you or TV gets good and you lost track, but the heels do not take anytime at all, it is just a matter of doing it. Okay, so we came over to the fifth one and if you did not remember so one, two, three, four, and five. So now, we are going to e-wrap back to the center point again, so we are back at the center point. Now, we are going to e-wrap to the fourth so one, two, it came off. So let us try again, so one, two, three and four. So, let us pull that over I could try getting it all and not just a section of it, so that is the fourth. So now, we work backward.
So, what we are basically doing is decreasing the stitches to cause it to want to turn. So remember, so one, two, three, and four. So now, we are going to come back to the center point. And now, we are going to go to the third so one, two, and three. And you notice I did not cut the red string because I am going to be capturing that again, so that was the third. And now, let us go back to the center point so I am not counting. So, let us now go back to the second so one and two. And now, we have finished decreasing everything so we are just on the second one. So, that is where we are and this is how you decrease and now everything that we are doing is going to increase. And as you can see on the inside, so you have built, you are basically building up the materials on the one side which allows it to turn. And now what we need to do is start increasing these stitches back again to cause it to bring this a red back into a perfect alignment.
