This is a Toe-Up Sock pattern by Denise Powell which sports either a reverse Dutch Heel or a reverse French Heel.


In Lesson Four, the instructions are to divide the number of stitches you have in 6 and knit a bottom-of-heel flap over 1/6 of the stitches at the center back heel, picking up another 1/6 of the stitches going up the back-of-heel on each side, thus 1/6 + 1/6 + 1/6 = 3/6 = 1/2 -- a heel worked over one half of the stitches on the sock. But what to do if you don't have a number evenly divided by six? I was working baby socks on 28 stitches and discovered that I can do a flap on 6 stitches (slightly more than one-sixth), leaving 4 on either side, thus using 14 stitches for the heel overall. To make this work I needed to do the bottom-of-heel flap 8 rows long, and pick up 4 stitches on either side of the flap (and not 6 on each side as the instructions imply based on the size of the bottom-of-heel flap). Basically, however many stitches you leave aside on the left and right side of the heel, that's how many you pick up as selvedge stitches to end up even. --LisaDusseault 21:23, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
