Pattern Instruction Help, Please!
I'm working on a sock pattern and I just finished the heel flap and I'm about to turn the heel.

The instructions for the heel flap:
Directions for heel flap, heel turn and gusset are given in the following format 23 [25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53] (These are for the different sizes. There are 15 numbers. Mine is in bold.)
Set up: Work 11 [12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26] stitches in pattern as set, turn.
Row 1 (WS): Slip 1, work 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52] stitches in pattern, turn.
Row 2 (RS): Slip 1, work 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52] stitches in pattern, turn.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until heel flap measures 2.5 inches, ending on a non-cabling RS row. (I've worked up to this point.)

The instructions for the heel turn:
Row 1 (RS): Slip 1, k13 [13, 15, 15, 17, 17, 19, 19, 21, 21, 23, 23, 25, 25, 27, 27, 29, 29], ssk, k1, turn. (What the hell. Why are there 17 numbers?! Which one am I supposed to use? 25 or 27?)
Row 2 (WS): Slip 1, p6 [4, 6, 4, 6, 4, 6, 4, 6, 4, 6, 4, 6, 4, 6, 4], p2tog, p1, turn. (And we're back to 15.)
Row 3 (RS): Slip 1, k to one stitch before gap created by turn on previous row, ssk to close gap, k1, turn.
Row 4 (WS): Slip 1, p to one stitch before gap created by turn on previous row, p2tog to close gap, p1, turn.

Repeat rows 3 and 4 until all stitches have been worked. 15 [15, 17, 17, 19, 19, 21, 21, 23, 23, 25, 25, 27, 27, 29, 29] stitches. (I assume the number for row 1 should be 27 since it's 27 here, but knitting has turned my brain into mush and I'm beyond being able to use math or logic.)

Hmmm, after looking at the pattern snippet's you wrote down, I would say, yep, it's 27 sts. (I counted four from the last number) I don't know where they came up with the 13 st thing but I would think it's 27. Number one reason I really (really) hate doing gusset sox.

If you K25 st, your heel turn will be even - you'll use up 29 st (but have 28 worked st because of your ssk), and that will leave 18 unworked when you turn. You'll then turn and use up 10 st on your purl row, leaving 18 unworked on that end, too, so your heel will be centered.
