Finally venturing into socks and part of this pattern doesn't make sense to me:

Heel Flap:
For the next 12 (14, 16) rounds, place 12 (14, 16) stitches on needle #1, and
divide the rest of the stitches between the other two needles.

Heel Flap Row 1: (Sl 1, K1)*, repeat * to end across 12 (14, 16) stitches, and
turn work.

Heel Flap Row 2: Sl 1 purlwise, P11 (13, 15), and turn work.
Repeat the last 2 rows 4 (6, Cool more times, ending with a P row

To me it would make sense to Sl1, K(11,13,15), turn. Am I reading that correctly or do they mean Sl1, K1,Sl1, K1,etc. to end of row and turn?

Repeat both rows. On the RS row do the sl 1, k1 across, on the WS rows slip the first stitch and purl the rest of them. The sl and k sts on the RS form a cushiony faux rib st that's often used on sock heels.

Thanks soozeq! I've made slipper socks before but they were constructed differently, so this is my first attempt at turning a heel. Still have a lot to learn with these but I finally conquered my sock fear! Grin
