These socks are part of a series of patterns Albina McLaughlin of LB Handknits releasing around the “integrated heel” method.
The Integrated Heel looks and fits similarly to a traditional heel flap and gusset. The difference is in the process. Like the traditional sock heel, the Integrated Heel features a heel flap, a gusset, and a turned heel. Unlike the traditional sock heel, the Integrated Heel is worked almost entirely in the round. This eliminates the need to work the heel flap back-and-forth flat, and to later pick up stitches along its edges.
For more see the LB Handknits blog.
Albina is holding an Integrated Heel KAL over on Ravelry too! See this thread for the full details.
