jaywalker

This is my jaywalker after one evenings knitting. the colors are much brighter in real life than what they are in this photo.

I am now knitting the heel and I am not doing as the pattern says. If that is because I don't understand the pattern or if that is because my gauge is off, I have no idea.

It says: Row 1: *sl1, k1; repeat from *.
Row 2: sl1, p37 (41).
Repeat the last 2 rows 15 (17) more times.

I read it that knitting the last 2 rows fifteen times means I will get 30 rows. If I do that I will get a way too long heel flap, so I stopped at 18 rows instead.

What makes you think 30 rows is too long for the heel flap? I have knitted Jaywalkers and because you are slipping half the stitches 30 rows will not be as long as you think. Trust the pattern (unless you have child size feet.)
