Dutch Heel/Tibet Sock

Re comments on the Tibet Sock - it is knitted with Regia yarn. I only said I think it is called Tibet because of it's colouring which reminds me of the multicoloured ribbons you see all over Tibet. It is not knitted with ribbon.

Now for the Dutch Heel. It gives a square heel which I find looks good and fits well.

I knit my sock with 72 stitches. I knit the heel flap over 36 sts and 20 rows. Then I started to turn the heel as follows:

slip1, knit 23, SSK and turn.
Slip 1, knit 12 P2Tog, turn,
Slip 1 knit 12, SSK turn

Continue in this fashion until all sts have been worked.

My socks are knitted using the 2 circs method. I have not knitted using dpn's.
