We are now at the start of the heel. You have 4 needles with 12 stitches in each. Knit the 12 stitches from the first needle so that they will be together with the 12 stitches from the last needle.
If you have a marker, which I didn't mention in the beginning, your first and last needles are siding the marker.
We are now working only on those 24 stitches, that means that you turn your work and start from the wrong side of work.
Slip the first stitch
purl the next
hold yarn in front of the next stitch and slip it purlwise,
purl the next,
slip the next,
and so on until the last stitch, which you will purl
next row is slip the first stitch and knit the rest
next row, again, slip 1, purl 1, slip 1, until the last stitch, which is purl
next row is slip and knit
continue this way until you have a total of 20 rows, don't panic if you have more.
Count the bigger knit stitches, and if you get 10 of those, you should have a total of 20 rows done.
I will continue later tonight.
