Quick Answer: How do I knit a sock heel?

What is a boomerang heel?

A while back, I blogged about so-called boomerang heels. These are basically short-row heels with a row (or two) of knitting all ’round the sock right in the middle of the heel after you’ve finished your first wedge (short-rowing to the smallest part of the heel).

How long should the heel flap be?

Continue working the heel flap in your preferred manner until it is about 2-1/2″ to 3″ long, depending on the wearer’s foot size. End with a right side row.
