This sock recipe contains instructions for making a basic toe-up sock, and includes my variation on an afterthought heel with gusset and heel flap.
The construction of the heel fits well even with high insteps, and has the advantage of a
super-comfortable heel cup with absolutely no wrap/turn short-row stitches.
