Cast on 96-96-104 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Karisma. Work according to A.1.
When A.1 has been worked, 48-48-52 sts remain on needle. Continue rib K 2/P 2 for 1 cm / ½'', on last round with rib inc 0-0-2 sts evenly = 48-48-54 sts.
Then work pattern according to A.2. When A.2 has been worked, work 1 round while dec 4-0-2 sts evenly = 44-48-52 sts.
Work 2 cm / 3/4'' in stockinette st, piece measures approx. 14 cm / 5½''.
Now keep the first 24-26-28 sts on needle for heel and slip the last 20-22-24 sts on a stitch holder (= mid on top of foot).
Work in stockinette st back and forth on heel sts for 5-5½-6 cm / 2"-2 1/4"-2½". Insert 1 marker.
Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above! After heel dec, pick up 11-12-13 sts along each side of heel and slip the 20-22-24 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 52-56-62 sts.

Repeat dec every other round 3-3-4 more times (4-4-5 dec in total) = 44-48-52 sts.
Continue until piece measures 18-20-22 cm / 7''-8''-8¾'' from marker on heel (= approx. 4-4-5 cm / 1½''-1½''-2'' remain).
