Just wondering if there was any particular reason to use one
method over the other? I much prefer the look and the ease of
making short row heels but it seems alot of patterns use the
heel flap. My problem with the heel flap method is even in the most
professionally knitted socks there is a ridge on the heel where the
stitches are picked up and I don’t like the way it looks so I always
use short rows but I started wondering is there a reason to use the
heel flap? Is it “stronger”? or just personal preference…?
