I have heard about a Dutch Heel, and do not know a thing about such thing. It refers to knitting socks, have not seen one or anything. Some ideas please, Thanks

STRING OR NOTHING - DUTCH HEEL
In the Dutch heel there are only two rows to remember - s1, knit (x), ssk; and s1, purl (x), p2tog. That to me at least makes it easier to calculate and to teach.

Thank you for your time looking all of the web sites up. I will investigate to see if any are simple enough for me to try.

Not sure - when I did the search with the words Dutch Heel Knitting, there were so many I only copied the first few. Try it. I only do top down sox myself so will have to find a site for them or a utube video....
