I 'd like to share the pattern that I recently came across.http://static.knittingparadise.com/upload/2014/1/3/thumb-1388729619095-img_3500.jpg
The original design belongs to Victoria Zmeyka, I contacted her and asked her permission to translate it in English. So thank you To Victoria.
I used 100% acrylic Red Heart Baby Soft yarn for this pair and 3mm double pointed needles.
Cast on 32 stitches and knit according to the chart for the heel flap.
Horizontal line - purl
1 row: Slip 1, *K2, P2* 7 times, K2 and you can either K or P last stitch (I prefer to P last stitch for a nice even edge).
2 row: Slip 1, K P2 , *K2, P2* 5 times, K 4, P last stitch.
3 row: Slip 1, K2, P2, * slip 1 to cable needle hold in back, K1, k1 from cable needle, P2* 6 times K2, P last stitch.
4 row: as 2nd row.
Knit for 22 rows.
Turning the heel.
I usually have about 1/3 of my stitches for the heel (10 for this particular pair).
(Right side) Slip 1, K 19 (half of your stitches on the needle +4), K next 2 together,place a marker, turn.
(Wrong side) Slip 1, P 8, P 9th and 10th together, place a marker, turn.
Now you have 2 turning points, K on the right side and purl on the wrong side last stitch before marker and first stitch after marker together.
Repeat those 2 rows until all stitches have been worked. You'll have 10 stitches on the needle. Pick up 11 stitches on the side of the heel, cast on 13 stitches for the middle and pick up another 11 stitches on another side of the heel. Knit in the round.
Use chart 2 for 13 stitches in the middle.
