Pattern: See diagrams M.1-M.3. The pattern diagram is seen from the RS.

Decreasing tip (apply to calf): P2 tog before and after the cable mid back.

Decreasing for heel:
1st row (= RS): K until there are 9-11-11 sts left on row, slip next st, K1, psso, turn piece
2nd row (= WS): P until there are 9-11-11 sts left on row, slip next st, P1, psso, turn piece
3rd row (= RS): K until there are 8-10-10 sts left on row, slip next st, K1, psso, turn piece
4th row (= WS): P until there are 8-10-10 sts left on row, slip next st, P1, psso, turn piece
Continue like this with 1 less st left before each dec until there are 14-16-16 sts left on row.

SOCK
Knitted round on double pointed needles from mid back. Cast on 76-84-92 sts on double pointed needle size 2 mm, knit 1 round and continue in Rib until piece measures 3 cm. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round, at the same time inc 6 sts evenly = 82-90-98 sts. Knit next round as follows: M.1, P 17-21-22 sts, M.1, M.2, M.3 and P 17-21-22 sts. Continue in pattern like this until piece measures 10 cm. Now insert a MT at beg of round and continue in pattern, at the same time dec 1 st on both sides of the cable mid back – see Decreasing tip – on every cm a total of 6-7-8 times = 70-76-82 sts. When piece measures 24-25-26 cm dec 10 sts evenly on round (do not dec over M.2) as follows: Dec 3 sts in each cable by knitting sts tog 2 by 2, at the same time dec 1 st by P 2 tog on the remaining sts (to make pattern fit) = 60-66-72 sts. Now keep the first 15-18-18 sts on needle, put the next 30-30-36 sts on a thread or a stitch holder (= mid upper foot) and keep the last 15-18-18 sts on needle = 30-36-36 sts for heel (insert a marking thread after 15-18-18 sts). Knit 5-5.5-6 cm stocking sts on heel sts and then dec for heel – see decreasing for heel above. After the heel dec pick up 15-16-18 sts on each side of the heel and the put the 30-30-35 sts from the thread or stitch holder back on double pointed needles = 74-78-88 sts. Continue in stocking sts on the first 22-24-26 sts, M.2 on the middle 30-30-36 sts and stocking sts on the remaining 22-24-26 sts. At the same time dec as follows: Knit tog the 2 sts before M.2 twisted tog.(i.e. knit into the back part of sts instead of the front) and knit tog the first 2 sts after M.2, tog. Dec on every other row a total of 9-8-10 times = 56-62-68 sts. Continue in pattern until piece measures 18-19-21 cm from MT on heel. Now insert a marking thread each side (28-31-34 sts between each MT). Continue in stocking sts on all sts and dec for toe on both sides of each marking thread as follows: K2 tog, MT, K2 twisted tog. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 4-8-10 times and on every round a total of 7-4-2 times = 12-14-20 sts left. On next round knit all sts tog 2 by 2. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts. Sew tight.
