There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Pattern: See diagram M.1 and M.2. Diagram shows the pattern from the RS. Work the entire pattern in stocking st.
Decreasing tip, applies to back of sock: Dec before Marking Thread (MT): K 2 tog. Dec after MT: slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso.
Heel dec:
Row 1 (= RS): Work row until 7-7 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, turn the piece.
Row 2 (= WS): Work row until 7-7 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to P, P1, psso, turn the piece.
Row 3: Work row until 6-6 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, turn the piece.
Row 4: Work row until 6-6 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 are12-14 sts on row.

Sock: Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 72-80 sts on needle size 3 mm with dark grey. Work rib, K2/P2, until piece measures 13-16 cm. Change to needle size 3.5 and work 2 rounds stocking st. Continue in M.1 on all sts. After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 continue in M.2 on all sts. When piece measures 30-32 cm insert 1 Marking Thread (MT) at beg of round (= mid back) and dec on each side of MT - see Decreasing tip - on every 5-4 round a total of 12-14 times = 48-52 sts. When piece measures 50-56 cm keep the first 12-13 sts on needle for heel, slip the next 24-26 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot) and keep the last 12-13 sts on needle = 24-26 sts for heel. Now complete sock in dark grey. Work 5-6 cm stocking st back and forth on heel sts. Now dec for heel - see Heel dec. After heel dec pick up 12-13 sts on either side of heel and slip all sts back on needles = 60-66 sts.
Insert 1 MT on each side of the 24-26 sts on upper foot and dec 1 st each side – see Decreasing tip - on every other round a total of 6 times = 48-54 sts. When the foot measures 19-21.5 cm (= approx 4-5 cm left) dec for toes on each side of both MT by K tog the 2 sts before MT and the 2 sts after MT (=4 dec per round).
Dec like this each side on every other round 3 times and then on every round 7-9 times = 8-6 sts left on needle. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
