SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 63-63-66-66 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with dark grey blue Karisma / dark blue
Merino Extra Fine. Switch to off white. K 1 round. Then work rib (= 1 twisted K / P 2) for 2.5 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm, K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 3-3-6-6 sts evenly = 60 sts. Work A.1 (= 6 sts) 10 times in width in total. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, piece measures approx. 15 cm. Continue piece in dark grey blue Karisma / dark blue
Merino Extra Fine and stocking st until finished measurements. On next round, dec 4 sts evenly = 56 sts. When piece measures 16 cm, dec 4-4-0-0 sts evenly = 52-52-56-56 sts. When piece measures 18 cm, dec 4 sts evenly in size 35/37 (do not dec more sts in the other sizes) = 48-52-56-56 sts. Continue to work until piece measures 23-24-25-26 cm. On next round, keep the first 12-13-14-14 sts on needle for heel, slip the next 24-26-28-28 sts on a stitch holder (= mid on top of foot) and keep the last 12-13-14-14 sts on needle for heel. Continue in stocking st back and forth over the 24-26-28-28 heel sts for 5-5½-6-6½ cm. Insert 1 marker in middle of piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above. After heel dec, pick up 11-12-13-14 sts on each side of heel and slip the 24-26-28-28 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 58-64-68-70 sts. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 24-26-28-28 sts on top of foot. Continue in stocking st in the round while AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows: K the last 2 sts BEFORE first marker on top of foot twisted tog and K the first 2 sts AFTER last marker on top of foot tog. Repeat dec every other round 6-7-7-6 more times = 44-48-52-56 sts. Continue to work until piece measures 18-20-22-25 cm from marker on heel (approx. 4-4-5-5 cm remain until finished measurements). Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 22-24-26-28 sts on top of foot and 22-24-26-28 sts under foot. Continue working stocking st while AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of each marker as follows: Dec as follows before marker: K 2 tog and dec as follows after marker: K 2 twisted tog (= 4 st dec). Repeat dec every other round 3-3-4-4 more times and then every round a total of 5-6-6-7 times = 8 sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Work the other sock the same way.
