Why there's no heel in it yet!!

This pattern intrigued me because of the different way to construct an after thought heel.  I don't like the way the 'regular' after thought heel feels/fits my foot.

this is what I knit up last night.  I'll be putting the heel on it tonight.

I've heard of the after-thought heel but have never tried it and yours is the first photo I've seen of one. It looks really cool, especially with the color changes in the yarn. I may have to try this... Smiley Thanks for posting about it.

This is a totally different kind of after though heel than what most folks knit.  Usually, you use a piece of scrap yarn to knit (and hold) the stitches to be used for the heel.  the actual after thought heel is constructed by removing the scrap yarn, picking up the stitches and essentially knitting a toe.

It is a free pattern on Ravelry.  What is hard to gauge with this particular heel is how far to knit the foot.  I highly suggest that you get a couple rows into the foot, then go back and complete this heel, then finish the foot and toe.
