Pattern: See diagram M.1 and M.2. Diagram shows 1 pattern repeat.
Heel dec:
Row 1 (= RS): Work row until 8-9-11 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, turn the piece.
Row 2 (= WS): Work row until 8-9-11 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to P, P1, psso, turn the piece.
Row 3: Work row until 7-8-10 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, turn the piece.
Row 4: Work row until 7-8-10 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to P, P1, psso, turn the piece.
Continue dec like this with 1 less st before each dec until there are 12-14-16 sts on row.

Sock: Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 64-71-78 sts on needle size 3 mm with 1 thread of each quality. K 1 round, P 2 rounds and K 2 rounds.
Continue as follows: * M.1, P3 *, repeat from *-* 5-6-7 times, M.1 and then M.2. Remember the knitting tension!
Continue in pattern like this until piece measures 12-13-14 cm, and now dec all P3 to P2 = 59-65-71 sts.
Continue until piece measures 20-21-22 cm.
Now keep the first 34-40-46 sts on needle for heel and slip the last 25 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot). Work stocking st back and forth on heel sts, at the same time dec 8-10-12 sts evenly on first row = 26-30-34 sts. When heel measures 5-5.5-6 cm insert 1 Marking Thread (MT) – now measure piece from here. Now dec for heel - see Heel dec. After heel dec pick up 12-13-14 sts on either side of heel and slip the 25 sts back on needles = 61-65-69 sts. Continue in M.2 on the 25 sts on upper foot and work remaining sts in stocking st. At the same time dec each side as follows: K tog the last 2 sts before the 25 sts on upper foot into back of loop and K tog the first 2 sts after the 25 sts. Dec like this on every other round a total of 8-8-8 times = 45-49-53 sts. When piece measures 18-19-21 cm from MT on heel (= approx 4-5-6 cm left) insert 1 MT each side with 23-25-27 sts on upper foot and 22-24-26 sts under foot. Continue in stocking st on all sts, at the same time dec for toes on each side of both MT as follows: Dec as follows before MT: K2 tog. Dec as follows after MT: K 2 tog into back of loop. Dec like this each side on every other round a total of 5-7-9 times and then on every round 4-3-2 times = 9 sts left on needle. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
