I'm working on a Cabled Christmas Stocking and I'm totally confused by how to do the heel. I have seen videos about how to do the actual wrap and turn so I think I can muddle through that part but I feel like the pattern is assuming some knowledge that I don't have

http://www.yarnspirations.com/assets/files/pattern-files/%5Bnode%3Aid%5D/pdf/en/Cabled%20Christmas%20Stocking%20_%20Yarn%20_%20Free%20Knitting%20Patterns%20_%20Crochet%20Patterns%20_%20Yarnspirations.pdf

Heel
(RS) For upper foot, k33, leave these sts unworked while shaping Heel.
Change to St st; begin Short Row shaping, working across to last 2 sts, wrp-t for each row until 15 sts remain.
Reverse the Short Row shaping by working across picking up 1 more st each row, working wraps together with
wrapped st, until all sts are being worked33 sts; end with a WS row.


It doesn't say anything about when (or if) to decrease just to work the short row shaping until 15 sts. remain. From what I understand the wrp-t doesn't alter the # of stitches

Also when it says each row I assume that means both rs and ws of the work?

Thanks for any help you can offer
