The humble sock toe up photo confused me, as the heel flap is typically not worked beneath the heel turn, but above it.
That part was confusing to me as well. When you look at the fo's that flap part of the socks look to me like they wrap around the heel. The miniature might be too small to reflect how the flap truly functions if I'm not mistaken. And I can only guess as to the function of the top part of the flap for shaping since I'm not all that familiar with sock construction. I think some people felt the flap might have been too long, not sure.

The one I posted is a popular pattern but lacks the video like Liat's so GG has a few options. I'm curious as well to see how it'll turn out. Just another reason to push my sock knitting back!
