This is by no mean a full tutorial, but it’ll give you some sense of how easy they are to work if you’re thinking about trying them out!
The last few pairs of socks I’ve knit, I’ve done afterthought heels. I started doing them because I wanted to knit socks two at a time, and I thought it’d be easier to not have to worry about how to work two heels at the same time. I think they’re great for a couple of reasons:
