I'm not a sock expert by any means but all of the heel flaps I've seen change pattern to either a rib or stockinette to accommodate the heel turn and the pattern continues on the top of the foot.

The only socks I've seen that continue the pattern that way are tube socks.

I am by NO MEANS any kinda expert on Socks (only made 2 pair, working on pair #3)
but if its just ribbing, that might work out just doing it and switching to stockingette for the bottom of the foot of the sock after you finish picking up the stitches
if you are doing toe up, then its just a matter of making them start pattern when it will work best

OR *as Ingrid says*
trust the pattern

If you like, you CAN continue the pattern. Socks I've seen that do, usually just take one part of the leg pattern, like ONE of the cables, and fill in the stitches on the side with stockinette or ribbing or something.

These socks continued the pattern down the heel..... http://www.flickr.com/photos/dottycam/645723258/ ...since the 'cable' was on each side, they just had you continue the linen stich down the middle, and rib the sides.

I found this shot on flickr of some socks called "Walking Away" socks.....

.......it looks like they just had you continue your pattern on half of the stitches for the heel flap.

What do you mean by 'how'? You just knit the pattern in... can you explain?
