SOCK: Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 50-54-58 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 15-16-17 sts (= mid back). Work stocking st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 5 cm dec 1 st on each side of marker mid back – SEE DECREASING TIP – and repeat the dec when piece measures 10 and 15 cm = 44-48-52 sts. When piece measures 18-19-20 cm keep the first 24-26-28 sts on round for heel and slip the last 20-22-24 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot). Work stocking st back and forth on heel sts for 5-5.5-6 cm. Insert a marker in piece. Now dec for heel – see above. After heel dec pick up 11-12-13 sts on each side of heel and slip the 20-22-24 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 52-56-62 sts. Continue in the round in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: K tog the first 2 sts after the 20-22-24 sts on upper foot and K tog into back of loop the last 2 sts before the 20-22-24 sts on upper foot. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 4-4-5 times = 44-48-52 sts. Continue until piece measures 18-20-22 cm from marker on heel (= approx 4-4-5 cm remain). Now insert a marker each side with 22-24-26 sts on upper foot and 22-24-26 sts under foot. Continue in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st on each side of both markers as follows: work round until 3 sts before marker, K2 tog, K2 (marker sits between these 2 sts), K2 tog into back of loop. Repeat the dec each side on every other round a total of 3-3-4 times and then on every round 6-7-7 times = 8 sts left on round. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.

CROCHET BORDER: Crochet a border round the top of leg with crochet hook size 3.5 mm as follows – beg mid back:
ROUND 1: 1 dc in first st, 3 ch, 2 tr in the same st as first dc, 2 ch, 3 tr in the same st again, * skip approx 2 cm, in next st crochet 3 tr, 2 ch and 3 tr *, repeat from *-* and finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. ROUND 2: 1 sl st in each of the first 2 tr and 1 sl st in ch-loop, 4 ch, 2 dtr in ch-loop, 2 ch, 3 dtr in the same ch-loop, crochet as follows in each ch-loop: 3 dtr, 2 ch and 3 dtr, and finish with 1 sl st in 4th ch from beg of round.
