See diagram A.1.
Dec 1 st as follows – beg 2 sts before marker:
Work 1 sc/dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next sc/dc but on last pull through, pull thread through all sts on hook = 1 st dec.
Beg every round on leg with ch 3, they are not counted and do not replace first dc in diagram. On foot replace first dc on round with 3 ch. Finish every round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. Turn every row on heel with 1 ch.
ROW 1 (= RS): Work 19-22-22 sc, 8-9-9 sc remain on row, dec
1 sc - SEE DECREASE TIP = 20-23-23 sc. Turn piece.
ROW 2 (= WS): Work 12-14-14 sc, 8-9-9 sc remain on row,
dec 1 sc = 13-15-15 sc, turn piece.
ROW 3: Work 12-14-14 sc, dec 1 sc, turn piece.
Repeat 3rd row 12-14-14 times in total, i.e. all sts on each side of the middle 13-15-15 sc on heel have been dec.
Worked in the round.
Ch 80-85-90 on hook size 2 mm / B/1 with off white and form 1 ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
Round 1: ch 3, then 1 dc in each of the next ch 3, skip ch 1, * 1 dc in each of the next ch 4, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sl st in the 3rd ch from beg of round = 64-68-72 dc.
Continue with A.1 - see explanation above. READ CROCHET TIP. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Continue with A.1 until piece measures 12 cm / 4¾''.
Now continue to work the heel with sc back and forth over the first 27-31-31 dc/ch on round.
Continue like this with 1 sc in every sc until approx. 5-5½-6 cm / 2"-2 1/4"-2½" have been worked over heel sts. Insert 1 marker – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Then dec for heel - see HEEL DECREASE!
After heel dec work as follows: 1 dc in each of the 13-15-15 sc on heel, 14-15-16 dc along the edge on heel, 1 dc in each of the 37-37-41 dc/ch on top of foot and 14-15-16 dc along the edge on the other side of heel = 78-82-88 dc on round.
Insert 1 marker on each side of the middle 33-37-37 dc on top of foot.
Then work in the round with dc under foot and A.1 over the 33-37-37 dc on top of foot while AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 dc on each side of the 33-33-37 sts on top of foot – SEE DECREASE TIP, repeat dec on every round 11-11-12 more times (12-12-13 dec in total) = 54-58-62 dc.
Continue until piece measures 19-21-23 cm / 7½"-8 1/4"-9" from marker on heel (= approx. 3-3-4 cm / 1"-1"-1½" remain).
Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 27-29-31 dc both on top of foot and under foot.
Finish as follows: 1 round with 1 sc in every dc, then work 1 sc in every sc while AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 sc on each side of every marker – SEE DECREASE TIP, repeat dec on every round 9-10-11 more times (10-11-12 dec in total) = 14 sc remain.
On next round work all sc tog 2 by 2.
Cut the yarn and sew it through the remaining sc, tighten tog and fasten.
Work as right sock but when working the heel, work over the last 27-31-31 dc/ch on round.
Crochet an edge around the edge of sock on hook size 2 mm / B/1 with Fabel as follows:
Work 1 sc in first dc, * skip approx. 1 cm / ½'', work 3 dc + 2 ch + 3 dc in next dc, skip approx. 1 cm / ½'', work 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
Work a similar edge down the leg on the side of sock, from the opening at the top and down to where heel beg.
Work the same way on the other sock but in the opposite side.
Crochet 4 ch on hook size 2 mm / B/1 with Fabel and form a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch.
Round 1: Work 6 sc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
Round 2: ch 1, 1 sc in first sc, * 3 dc + 2 ch+ 3 dc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total and finish with 3 dc + 2 ch + 3 dc in last sc and 1 sl st in first sc = 3 leaves.
Crochet 2 flowers, fasten one flower on each sock where the crochet edge on leg ends.
