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.


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