    It would be helpful to know how many stitches to pick up for the gusset.

      Hi Margaret,
      As row gauges can differ a little bit I usually recommend picking up 1 stitch in each slipped stitch along the side of the heel flap. And then picking up the same number on the other side of the heel flap.
      On my sample I picked up 20 stitches along each side, but as long as there are no holes anything goes!
