Row 4: Yo backwards, purl to paired sts made by the yo of the previous row, turn.
Rep the last 2 rows until there are 11 total sts between YOs [11 unpaired sts between YOs], ending with a WS row. Turn so RS is facing.
Second Half of Short Row Heel
Row 1: (RS) Yo as usual, knit to the paired st made by yo of previous row, k1, (the first st of the pair), correct the mount of the yo (so that the leading edge is on the front of the needle), k2tog (the yo with the first st of the next pair, leaving a yo as the first st on the left needle), turn.
Row 2: (WS) Yo backwards, purl to paired st made by yo of previous row, purl the first st of the pair, ssp (the yo with the first st of the next pair, leaving a yo as the first st on the left needle; see Stitch Guide), turn.
Row 3: Yo, knit to the paired st made by yo of previous row, knit the first st of the pair (the next 2 loops will be YOs), correct the mount of each of these YOs, k3tog (2 YOs with the first st of the next pair), turn.
Row 4: Yo backwards, purl to next yo (the next 2 loops are YOs), sssp (2 YOs with the first st of the next pair; see Stitch Guide), turn.

GRAFTING
Holding the 2 needles parallel with wrong sides of fabric together, thread a blunt tapestry needle with yarn end and work as follows: Insert needle as if to purl into the first stitch on front piece. Insert needle as if to knit into the first stitch on the back piece. Then follow steps 1-4 as outlined below. 1) Insert it as if to knit through the first st on the front needle and let the st drop from the needle. 2) Insert the needle into the second st on the front needle as if to purl and pull the yarn through, leaving the st on the needle. 3) Insert the needle into the first st on the back needle as if to purl and let it drop from the needle, then 4) insert it as if to knit through the second st on the back needle and pull the yarn through, leaving the st on the needle. Repeat 1-4 until all sts are gone. When finished, adjust tension as necessary. Weave in ends.
