SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 44-48-52 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with 2 strands Fabel - see explanation on COLOR.
K 1 round, then work rib as follows: * P 2, K 2 *, repeat from *-* the entire round. When rib measures 5-5-6 cm / 2"-2"-2½", change color - see explanation above. Continue rib over the first 22-26-26 sts on needle (i.e. beg and end with P 2), work the other sts in stockinette st. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 12-13-15 cm / 4 3/4"-5"-6", keep the first 22-26-26 sts on needle for heel. Slip the other 22-22-26 sts on a stitch holder = mid on top of foot.
Then work rib back and forth over heel sts for 5-5½-6 cm / 2"-2 1/4"-2½". Insert 1 marker here, now measure piece from here! Work in HEEL DEC - see explanation above.
After heel dec, pick up 10-11-12 sts along each side of heel and slip the 22-22-26 sts mid on top of foot back on needle = 52-56-62 sts. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 22-22-26 sts on top of foot.
Continue in stockinette st over all sts while AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows: K the last 2 sts before the 22-22-26 sts on top of foot twisted tog (i.e. work in back loop instead of front) and K the first 2 sts after the 22-22-26 sts on top of foot tog.
Repeat dec every other round 7 more times = 36-40-46 sts. Continue to work until piece measures 17-18-21 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-8 1/4" from marker on heel.
Change color - see explanation above, and continue in stockinette st. When piece measures 18-19-22 cm / 7"-7½"-8 3/4" (approx. 4-5-5 cm / 1½"-2"-2" remain), insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 18-20-23 sts both on top of foot and under foot.
Then dec for toes on each side of both markers.
Dec as follows when 3 sts remain before marker: K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these sts), K 2 twisted tog.
Repeat dec in each side on every other round 3-2-3 more times and then on every round a total of 2-4-4 times = 12-12-14 sts remain on needle.
On next round K2 tog around.
Cut the yarn and pull strands through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
