SOCKS:
Worked in the round.
Cast on 104 sts for all sizes on double pointed needles size 3 mm with Karisma. K 1 round, then work M.1 for 6 cm, and continue with the first 10 rounds of M.2. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and complete M.2. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
After M.2 there are 72 sts on needle and piece measures approx 24 cm. Continue with M.3 – AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 26-27-28 cm dec 1 st in each P-section (= 4 dec), repeat the dec on every 3-4-5 cm a total of 5-4-3 times (dec at the beg and the end of P-section alternately) = 52-56-60 sts. When piece measures 39-40-42 cm ”twist” piece in order to have 1 cable mid back - keep the 4 sts over cable mid back and 9-10-11 sts each side of these on needle for heel. Slip the remaining 30-32-34 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot). Continue in pattern as before on the 22-24-26 heel sts for 5-5.5-6 cm. On next row from RS K2 tog on the 4 sts over cable = 20-22-24 heel sts. Now complete heel in reverse stocking st. Work 1 row - insert a marker – then work HEEL DECREASES – see above.
After heel dec pick up 11-12-13 sts each side of heel and slip the 30-32-34 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 62-68-72 sts. Insert a marker each side of the 30-32-34 sts on upper foot. Continue in pattern as before on these sts and P the remaining sts - AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: P tog the last 2 sts BEFORE first marker and P tog the first 2 sts AFTER last marker on upper foot. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 6-7-7 times = 50-54-58 sts. Continue as before until piece measures 18-20-22 cm from marker on heel (= approx 4-4-5 cm remain). Work 1 round, at the same time K2 tog on the 4 K sts on each cable = 44-48-52 sts. Insert a marker each side with 22-24-26 sts on upper foot and under foot. Continue P all sts AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes each side of both markers as follows: Work round until 3 sts before marker, P2 tog, P2 (marker sits mid between these 2 sts), P2 into back of loop. Repeat the dec on every other a total of 4-4-6 times and then on every round 5-5-4 times = 8-12-12 sts left on needle. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
