The Peasant Heel in knitting socks is a cousin to an afterthought heel. For the peasant heel, the heel will be knit into a pre-planned space, marked by knitting a partial round in a contrasting waste yarn. When the sock is completed (barring the heel) you will go back, put stitches on the needles, snip out the waste yarn, and then knit your heel – usually a variation on the wedge heel. The Peasant Heel is a great technique to use when working a complex pattern for the leg and foot. For a refresher on knitting socks on double-pointed needles, check out this video.
