Heels are Overrated
As you can see, the heel is a bit big too be honest… Which is rather unfortunate because a smaller heel would certainly have shortened the time a bit. I actually ended up having to do the heel a number of times before figuring out a way to do it successfully. The author of the pattern also provided a modification PDF to describe how to make them smaller. But I think her directions for the heel were a bit lacking. She pretty much told you to change only the first row of the heel and otherwise to follow the remainder of the pattern exactly. But first of all, this leaves you with a lopsided heel so I had to improvise a wee bit. And I made sure to have 21 stitches after the heel as written in the pattern but I think that should have been modified as well for smaller socks.
