i could not see if i had really done the wrap as my yarn is not as big as in the youtube demo. or as light! after ripping it back and starting over (because i was unsure or thought i had not done the wrap.) i finally did the wrap, placed a stitch marker, knitted to the next one needed, did the wrap, placed the stitch marker and carried on.
placing the markers prevents you from making too many wraps (like i did) or not enough wraps (like i did)! it also helps when you go to unwap as you cannot skip a wrap when you go to picing up stitches.
fiddly, you bet! save on eyesight and sanity, YOU BET!
try it or suggest it to others. may help the person, the sanity, the eyesight, and prevent lots of undo ripping! also might get some people, who don't do this type of heel, to stick with it a bit longer before only doing a different heel type.
at my group knitting last night, no one at the table does this type of heel. i think it is easy now that i figured out my little trick!
