Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 64-64-64 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with lavender. K 1 round and work 4 rounds rib K1/P1. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and continue in M.1 (= 16 sts) on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME on last row of M.1 dec 4-0-0 sts evenly = 60-64-64 sts. Continue in M.2 (= 4 sts) on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME on last row of M.2 dec 4-4-4 sts evenly = 56-60-60 sts. K 1 round with off-white, and continue as follows: M.3 (= 35 sts), M.4A (= 4 sts) on the next 20-24-24 sts, finish with M.4B (= 1 st). Work a total of 4 vertical repeats of M.4 and now slip sts on M.3 (= 35 sts) on a stitch holder = 21-25-25 sts left for heel. Work M.5 on these sts for 5-5.5-6 cm, and insert a marker in piece. Now work HEEL DECREASES – see above. After heel dec pick up 12-14-14 sts each side of heel and slip the 35 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 68-74-74 sts. Continue in M.3 on the 35 sts on upper foot and M.5 on the remaining sts under foot, AT THE SAME TIME dec each side of sts on upper foot as follows: K tog the 2 sts before M.3 and K tog into back of loop the 2 sts after M.3. Repeat the dec on every other row a total of 5 times = 58-64-64 sts. Continue in M.3 and M.5. After 2 vertical repeats of M.3 continue as follows: M.6 (= 3 sts), M.5 on the next 29 sts, M.6, M.5 on the next 23-29-29 sts. Continue like this until piece measures 19-20-23 cm from marker on heel (= 3-4-4 cm remain). Now dec for toes each side of the middle st in M.6 each side. Dec as follows before the middle st: K2 tog with off-white. Dec as follows after the middle st: slip first st as if to K, K1, psso. Dec on every round a total of 9-10-10 times = 22-24-24 sts left.
