--------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
Worked back and forth on needle from top down to the toes.

Cast on 20-21-22 sts on needle size 12 mm with Polaris. K 1 row on WS, then work 8 rows in garter st – see explanation above! REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work next row from RS as follows: * K5, K2 tog *, repeat *-*, finish with K6-7-8 = 18-19-20 sts. K 1 row on WS.

Change to Eskimo (continue with needle size 12 mm). Next row from RS work as follows: *K1, YO*, repeat *-* until 1 st remain, finish with K1 (on next row P yo twisted, i.e. purl in the back of the loop instead of front, this to avoid a hole) = 35-37-39 sts. Work 5 rows in stocking st back and forth (start on WS).

Change back to Polaris. Now work next row from RS as follows: K1, then K2 tog across the row = 18-19-20 sts. K 1 row on WS. Work next row from RS as follows: * K8-8-9, K2 tog, K8-9-9 = 17-18-19 sts. K 1 row on WS.

Change to Eskimo. Work next row from RS as follows: * K1, 1 YO *, repeat *-* until 1 st remains, end with K1 = 33-35-37 sts. Work 5 rows in stocking st back and forth (start on WS).

Change back to Polaris. Work next row like this from RS: K1, then K2 tog across the row = 17-18-19 sts. K 1 row on WS.
Now work shortened rows with inc for heel as follows (continue with Polaris and garter st to finished measurements) – See KNITTING TIP!:
* K6, turn and K5 on return row, K2 in last st on row. K 1 row on all sts. K6, turn and K5 on return row, K2 in last st on row. K 1 row on all sts *.
Repeat *-* a total of 4-5-6 times = 25-28-31 sts. After last inc place a marker in the first st, piece is now measured from here.
Now work shortened rows with dec as follows:
* K2 tog, K5, turn and K6 on return row. K 1 row on all sts. K2 tog, K5, turn and K6 on return row. K 1 row on all sts *.
Repeat *-* a total of 5-6-7 times = 15-16-17 sts. Knit back and forth without dec until piece measures 18-19-20 cm from marker (= 4-5-6 cm remain).
Now dec for toes as follows: knit back and forth on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st on every row from RS a total of 3-4-5 times = 12 sts left on all sizes. K2 tog across the row = 6 sts left on all sizes. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Sew seam mid under foot and up to cast on row, edge to edge, in outer loops of sts to avoid a chunky seam.
