There are many different types of sock heels…my favourite construction these days is a toe-up heel flap construction. It creates a small tongue under the heel and the heel cap is created using increases and short rows — no need to pick up stitches! The pics below are from the Go Lassie Go Socks. The heel flap itself is worked in a Reverse Slip Stitch pattern.
