Knitting tip-1: To avoid thread ends you may work each diamond in the first line of diamonds with a separate ball and let this follow the piece for the following lines instead of cutting the thread.

Knitting tip-2: Always pick up sts from RS.

Whole domino diamond : Insert a marking thread (MT) in the middle st.
Row 1 (= WS): K
Row 2 (= RS): K row until 1 st before MT, slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, K to the end of row. Repeat row 1 and 2, i.e. dec 2 sts in the middle of diamond on every other row until 1 st left on row. Cut the thread and pull through st.

Half domino diamond (horizontal): Pick up 19-21-23 sts between 2 diamonds from previous line of diamonds. Work like whole diamond, but in addition to dec in the middle of diamond, slip the last st on a thread at the end of every row (first time = on first row from WS) until 3-4-3 sts left on row. Continue as follows:
Size 35/37 + 41-43: 3 sts left on row (i.e. 4-5 sts on threads each side). K 1 row from WS on the 3 sts.
Work next row (= RS) as follows: slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso. Cut the thread and pull through remaining st on needle.
Size 38/40: 4 sts left on row. Work next row as follows from RS: slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso. Put the last st on thread at side (i.e. 5 sts on threads each side). Cut the thread and pull through remaining st on needle.

Half domino diamond (vertical): Beg with 10-11-12 sts.
Row 1 (= WS): K
Row 2 (= RS): K row until 2 sts before MT, K 2 tog. Mirror this at the other end of the line of dominos, i.e. K2 tog after MT. Repeat row 1 and 2, i.e. dec 1 st in diamond (towards under the foot) on every other row until there is 1 st left on row. Cut the thread and pull through remaining st.

Heel decreases:
Row 1 (= RS): Work row until 6-7-7 sts left on needle, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): Work row until 6-7-7 sts left on needle, slip 1 st as if to P, P1, psso, turn piece.
Row 3 (= RS): Work row until 5-6-6 sts left on needle, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, turn piece.
Row 4 (= WS): Work row until 5-6-6 sts left on needle, slip 1 st as if to P, P1, psso, turn piece.
Continue to dec like this with 1 less st before dec until there are 14-14-16 sts left on needle.

Socks: Beg at the top of leg. Cast on 115-125-135 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm. P 1 round. Work next round as follows: *K 10-11-12, slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, K 10-11-12*, repeat from *-* a total of 5 times = 105-115-125 sts. Turn the piece and continue back and forth on needle. Work 1 whole domino diamond – see above – on the first 21-23-25 sts. See Knitting tip-1. Leave remaining sts on needle.. When the whole domino diamond is complete work on the next 21-23-25 sts in the same way, and continue like this on the remaining sts on row = 5 domino diamonds in total. Now pick up 10-11-12 sts – see Knitting tip-2! - along the side of the last diamond from the previous Line of dominos, pick up 1 st between this Diamond and pick up 10-11-12 sts along the side of the diamond = 21-23-25 sts on row. Work 1 whole domino diamond as before and continue like this on remaining sts. Continue as described above until there are 3 Lines of domino diamonds in total. Work the 4th Line of diamonds in the same way, but dec 2 sts evenly on first row (= from WS) in each diamond = 19-21-23. Work 1 whole domino diamond on these sts. In Line 5 pick up 19-21-23 sts along the sides of diamonds and work diamonds across the row. Continue as described for Line 5 until there are 8 Lines of diamonds in total. Piece now measures approx 23-25-27 cm.

Heel: On next row work 2 half horizontal diamonds - see above. After 2 half diamonds pick up 1 st (from RS) before the first half diamond. Now work the 4-5-5 sts from thread back on needle, pick up 2 sts between the 2 threads, work the 4-5-5 sts from the other thread back on needle and pick up 2 sts between the 2 half diamonds, work 4-5-5 sts from thread back on needle, pick up 2 sts between the 2 threads, work the 4-5-5 sts from the other thread back on needle and pick up 1 st after the last half diamond = 24-28-28 sts. P 1 row from WS, at the same time dec 0-2-0 sts evenly = 24-26-28 sts for heel. Now work 5-5.5-6 cm stocking st on heel sts. Insert a Marking Thread (MT) and dec for heel – see explanation above. After completing the heel pick up 13-14-16 sts on both sides of heel = 40-42-48 sts. Slip all sts on a thread.

Upper foot 1: Pick up 19-21-23 sts for whole domino diamond as before and work a Line of 3 diamonds on upper foot.

Under foot 1: Pick up 10-11-12 sts along the side of the outermost diamond on upper foot, work the 40-42-48 sts from thread back on needle and pick up 10-11-12 sts along the side of the diamond on the other side of upper foot = 60-64-72 sts. Insert 1 marking thread (MT) on both sides of sts from thread. Continue in stocking st back and forth on needle on sts under foot, at the same time work 1 half vertical domino diamond –see above – each side. At the same time dec under foot (from RS) each side as follows: K tog the first 2 sts after the first MT and K tog the last 2 sts before second MT into back of st. Dec like this on every other row a total of 13-14-15 times. Continue until the half dominos are complete and slip remaining sts on a thread.

Upper foot 2: Pick up 19-21-23 sts for whole domino diamond as before and work 2 diamonds on upper foot. Now pick up sts for the next Line of diamonds and work 3 whole domino diamonds.

Under foot 2: Slip sts from thread back on needle and pick up 10-11-12 sts in the outermost diamond from upper foot each side. Continue in stocking st on sts under foot, at the same time work 1 half vertical domino diamond each side. NB! Remember to continue the dec each side under foot. When the half diamond is complete slip the remaining sts on a thread.

Upper foot 3: Pick up sts for whole domino diamond as before and work 2 diamonds on upper foot. Now pick up sts for the next Line of diamonds, but work 3 half horizontal domino diamonds.

Toe: Slip the 14-14-18 sts from under foot back on needle and pick up 1 st before the first half diamond, *work the 4-5-5 sts from thread back on needle, pick up 2 sts between the threads, work the next 4-5-5 sts from thread back on needle*, pick up 2 sts between diamonds, repeat from *-*, pick up 2 sts between diamonds, repeat from *-* and finish with picking up 1 st after the last half diamond. = 50-56-60 sts.
Now continue in the round.
Work stocking st on all sts until piece measures approx 18-19-21 cm from MT on heel (approx 4-5-6 cm left to finished measurements). Insert 1 MT each side with 25-28-30 sts on upper foot and 25-28-30 sts under foot. Continue in stocking st, at the same time dec for toes on each side of both MT. Dec as follows before K1 and MT: K2 tog. Dec as follows after MT and K1: K2 tog into back of st. Dec like this each side on every other round a total of 4-5-8 times and then on every round 6-6-3 times = 10-12-16 sts left on needle. On next round work all sts tog 2 by 2. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts and fasten.
