When leg measures 16-20-23 (25-32) cm [6Ό”-8”-9” (9Ύ”-12½”)] divide the piece by marker and continue back and forth on needle (to make it easier to slip both legs on the same circular needle afterwards), AT THE SAME TIME cast on 1 new st each side for seam = 74-78-80 (82-86) sts.

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 44-48-48 (52-56) sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm [US 1] with off-white. Work 7-8-9 (10-11) cm [2Ύ’’-3 1/8’’-3½’’ (4’’-4 3/8’’)] rib, K2/P2.
Now keep the first 18-22-22 (22-26) sts on needle for heel and slip the remaining 26-26-26 (30-30) sts on a stitch holder = upper foot. Work 3-3½-4 (4-4½) cm [1 1/8’’-1Ό’’-1½’’ (1½’’-1Ύ’’)] stockinette st on heel sts. Insert a marker in piece and now dec for heel – SEE ABOVE. After heel dec pick up 8-9-10 (11-12) sts on either side of heel and slip sts from stitch holder back on needles = 50-54-56 (62-66) sts. Continue in rib on the 26-26-26 (30-30) sts on upper foot and stockinette st on remaining sts. AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st on either side of rib – SEE DECREASING TIP-1. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 5-7-6 (7-9) times = 40-40-44 (48-48) sts. Continue with K over K and P over P until piece measures 7-8-9 (10-12) cm [2Ύ’’-3 1/8’’-3½’’ (4’’-4Ύ’’] from marker on heel (approx 3-3-3 (4-4) cm [1 1/8”-1 1/8”-1 1/8” (1½”-1½”)] remain). Now insert a marker each side with 20-20-22 (24-24) sts on upper foot and 20-20-22 (24-24) sts under foot. Change to soft chocolate and continue in stockinette st on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st on each side of both markers – SEE DECREASING TIP-2 - on every other round 3 times and then on every round 5-5-6 (7-7) times = 8 sts left.
