i have decided to try this heel next on the sock I am working on. i understand everything, but i just want to get your opinions on it. the link is here:
essentially my question has to do with the flap. it says "after you've completed your gusset increases," blah blah do flap. basically i will be stopping at approximately 6 inches and then beginning my gusset increases, which I am going to do a total of 16 (8 on each side) so that will take me 16 rows. my gauge is about 10 rows an inch, so 16 rows will have me at approximately 7-1/2 inches, give or take, which means my little flap will have to be about 2 inches long in order to go under my heel... that's the part I'm not sure on and I can't really tell from the picture... it has "small heel flap" in the diagram on this page:
and it looks pretty small.... Does 2 inches or so seem right?
Thanks a bunch!
