Knitting tension: Remember needle size is only a guide! 23 sts x 32 rounds with needle size 3 mm and stocking st = 10x10 cm

Rib: * K 2, P 2r *, repeat from *-*

Tube sock: Cast on 56-60-68 sts with double pointed needles size 3 mm and light grey. Work rib for 31-32-33 cm. Now work 1 round where the rib is misplaced 1 st to the left as follows: over K 2-P 2 work P 1-K 2-P 1.
* Work 3 rounds with K over K and P over P, then misplace the rib again 1 st to the left * repeat from *-* until piece measures 49-51-54 cm. Now insert marker thread in each side = 28-30-34 sts between each marker thread. Continue with stocking st while at the same time dec for toe - 4 sts before each marker thread work as follows: K 2 tog, 4 sts stocking st (marker thread in middle of these 4 sts), loosely slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, lift the slipped st over.
Dec like this in each side every 2nd round 5-8-6 times and then every round 4-2-6 times = 20 sts remain on needle. On next round work all sts tog, 2 and 2. Cut strand and pull through the remaining 10 sts twice, draw tog and fasten strand well.

The complete sock measures approx. 53-56-59 cm.

Crochet border: Crochet a round of ch-spaces at top of sock – work from WS. Work with hook size 3.5 mm and light grey as follows: 1 dc in 1st st, * 7 ch, skip 3 sts, 1 dc in next st *, repeat from *-* and finish with 7 ch and 1 sl st in 1st dc.
