I've decided to branch out on my sock knitting, and want to use an afterthought heel on my current pair. I'm not entirely sure how long I'm supposed to work the foot after the positioning of the heel though. Any suggestions?

I did an afterthought heel a while ago. My pattern says:

sock length after row of scrap yarn should be appropriate for the length of foot between base of heel cup (the point directly below the ankle bone) and beginning of big toe.

Hope this helps. It worked for me.
