Having knitted so many pairs of socks, by now I can pretty much crank them out without a pattern, except for remembering the numbers for turning the heel. Socks made on 56 stitches, for example, have different heel numbers than those on more or fewer.
Here’s a handy chart for knitting different styles of sock heels, in accordance with the number of stitches cast on at the beginning of the pattern.

If you’d like to watch a video tutorial about turning heels, I’ve posted a good video here .
