I am knitting the Very Tall Socks from knitty with a gauge of 15.5 sts/19 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch.
The original gauge is 20 sts/36 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch.
I have the beginning of the pattern figured out, but I don't know how to convert the shaping section. All the info following I don't know how to do. I ended up casting on 80 sts instead of the initial 90, which in hindsight is a little too big, but it seems to fit me fine. Can anyone help?? Thanks a TON!!
CO 90 sts, and distribute as follows over 4 needles: 23 sts on first and fourth needles, 22 sts on second and third needles. Place marker and join to begin working in the round, being careful not to twist.
The point at which the join happens will be the center back of the sock.
Work in 1x1 rib for 15 rounds.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Rows (rounds) will be counted from this point.
Work in stockinette st for 92 rounds.
???I've done everything up to this point. I don't know how to do the rest. HELP!
Set-up Rnd: K22, place marker, k46, place marker, k22.
Shaping Rnd: K to 2 sts before first marker, k2tog, k to second marker, slip marker, k2tog, k to end of round.
[Work 3 rnds even. Work Shaping Round.] 3 times. 82 sts rem. (Rnd 106 just worked.)
Work 38 rnds even. (Round 144 just worked.)
[Work Shaping Rnd. Work 1 round even.] 13 times. 56 sts rem. (Rnd 170 just worked.)
Work Shaping Rnd once more. 54 sts rem.

Place first 14 and last 13 sts of round onto one dpn: the heel flap wil be worked on these 27 sts. Place rem 27 sts on a st holder or piece of waste yarn.
Work in stockinette st until heel flap measures 2.5 inches, ending with a RS row.

Pick up and k 15 sts along left side of heel flap. Using a second dpn, work across 27 sts on front of foot. Using a third dpn, pick up and k 15 sts along rem side of heel flap, and k 8 sts from heel flap. (Sts should now be distributed as follows: 23 sts on first and third needles, 27 sts on second needle. 73 sts. NOTE: Foot will be worked using four needles instead of five.)
Rnd 1: K to last 3 sts on first needle, k2tog, k1, k across all sts on second needle, k first st on third needle, k2tog, k to end.
Rnd 2: K all sts.
