Just about every knitter you meet will have a go-to sock recipe. While I enjoy mixing things up with different styles and techniques, I always come back to knitting my socks cuff-down, with a reinforced heel-flap and short-row-heel-turn. I love this style because it’s simple enough for auto-pilot knitting, and incorporates enough techniques to keep things interesting.

ERRATA

The heel flap should finish on the WS row, before continuing on to turning the heel on the RS row.
