Cable & Lace Heel Flap Question...

On R1 of the heel flap, the stitches total 36, but the heel flap is to be worked on 33 stitches. Am I missing something? I am not sure where the k6 should line up- intuition tells me over a run of cable... any help, or should I go for a reinforced heel and not worry... ??? Thank you!! This is my first pair to be making along with the group. So far, really fun!

Never mind- I used Marilyn's photo as a guide for reinforced heel placement. Thanks!

I'm glad the photo helped! Looking forward to seeing the finished article - all the socks so far are really pretty.

Sorry I've just seen this quiestion. Not been around much lately. Work as the pattern described, then when you turn and work back there are 3 (I think - not got the pattern infront of me) stitches that are left after you've turned and these will be put on the needle with the instep stitches. Did that make sense? Think I neen to clarify the pattern a little as someone asked the same question on my Ravelry group. Tehre is a more comprehensive answer on teh Ravelry group. To find the RAvelry group, if you're a Ravelry member but not a member of my group. Just type in YarnAddict & Anni Design into the group search box and it should come up.
