Knitting tension: 26 sts x 34 rows in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm.

Garter sts: Knit back and forth on all rows.

Knitting tips: Every time turning mid back on row, slip 1 st. Tighten the thread and continue as before. This is done to avoid a hole.

Assembly tip: The sts at the toe are pulled tog. tight at the end. Insert therefore a thread in the outer part of the most outer sts towards the toe and let this thread folow the work. Use this thread to pull tight with at the end.

Socks:
Knit the sock back and forth beg. mid underneath the foot, working you way up over the instep and finish again underneath the foot.
Knit the top 12-14-16 sts (the side with the rise) and the 10-13-16 toe side sts is garter sts – see explanation above. Knit remaining sts in stocking sts.
Remember the knitting tension!

Cast on 120-130-140 sts on needles size 2,5 mm with Fabel.

Work 36 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 35 sts back.

Size 6/7: work 60 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 59 sts.
All sizes: work 4 rows over all sts. Read assembly tips above!

Then dec. for the heel as follows:
Insert 1 marker in the 62nd – 68th- 72nd sts (counted from the side with the ”rise”).
Dec 1 st each side of marker on every other row a total of 11 times = 98-108-118 sts.
Work in stocking sts (the top and the bottom sts remain in garter sts) until the work measures 5-7-9 cm from last dec.
Now inc. for the heel as follows:
Insert 1 marker in the 51st -57th- 61st st (counted from the side with the ”rise”). Inc 1 st each side of marker on every other row a total of 11 times = 120-130-140 sts. Work 4 rows over all sts.
