Knitting tension: 12 sts x 26 rows in garter sts = 10 x 10 cm
Garter sts: Knit back and forth on all rows
Knitting tips: Each time turning in the middel of a row, slip a st. tighten the thread and continue back on row. This is done to avoid a hole in the turnings.

Sock: Remember the knitting tension! Knit the sock back and forth. Beg. mid underneath the foot, then up over the instep and finish mid underneath the foot.
The sock is knitted in garter sts through out.

Tip of the toe: Every 3rd and 4th row is shorten. This means on every other row knitted down towards the toe not all sts are knitted, but turn the middel of the work when 5-5-6 sts are left – read knitting tips above!


Cast on 62-67-72 sts with needles size 6 mm in Eskimo. First knit a ”rise” at the back part of the sock as follows: Knit 8 sts, turn, slip a st, knit 7 sts. Knit 16 sts, turn, slip a st, knit 15 sts. Knit 24 sts, turn, slip a st, knit 23 sts.
Size 6/7: Knit 32 sts, turn, alip a st, knit 31 sts.
All sizes: Continue with 3 rows over all 62-67-72 sts (remember the shorten rows towards the toe – the opporsite side of the ”rise” of the back part of the sock).
Now dec for heel as follows: Insert a MT (marking thread) in the 26th-29th-32nd sts (from the toe). Dec 1 st each side of the st with the MT on every other row a total of 5 times = 52-57-62 sts. Knit in garter sts until the piece measures 10-12-14 cm from the last dec. – stop at the same side as the toe.
Continue to inc. for the heel as follows: Insert a MT in the 21st-24th-27th sts (from the toe). Inc. 1 st each side of the st with the MT on every other row a total of 5 times = 62-67-72 sts. Knit 3 rows over all sts. Continue the”rise” of the back part as follows:
Size 6/7: Knit 32 sts, turn, slip a st, knit 31 sts.
All sizes: Knit 24 sts, turn, slip a st, knit 23 sts. Knit 16 sts, turn, slip a st, knit 15 sts.
Knit 8 sts, turn, slip a st, knit 7 sts.
Put sts on a thread or a sts holder. Knit 1 more sock.
Assembly: Sew sts from the thread or sts holder and the casting on edge tog. with drafting sts. The seam begins underneath the foot and comes up along the back of the leg. Pull the sts tog. with the thread and sew tight.
