GARTER ST (in the round):
K 1 round, P 1 round.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows.

PATTERN: See diagram M.1 – the diagram shows the pattern from the RS.
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
LOOSELY cast on 51-51-51 (51-68) sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Alpaca. Work 4 rows garter st – SEE ABOVE – and then work 3-4-4 (5-5) vertical repeats of M.1. When piece measures approx 4-5-5 (6-6) cm work 1 round stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 40-44-48 (52-56). Work 2 cm rib, K1/P1, and work next round as follows: * K2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* (= casing). On next round slip the first 15-17-18 (20-21) sts on a stitch holder, keep the next 10-10-12 (12-14) sts on needle and slip the last 15-17-18 (20-21) sts on a stitch holder. Work 3.5-4-5 (6-7) cm garter st back and forth on needle (= upper foot). Now pick up 9-11-13 (15-18) sts on each side of upper foot and slip sts from stitch holders back on needle = 58-66-74 (82-92) sts. Work garter st back and forth on needle from mid back, AT THE SAME TIME after 2-2.5-3 (3.5-4) cm dec as follows: K2 tog at the beg and at the end of row and K2 tog on each side of the 2 middle sts. Repeat the dec on every other row until piece in garter st measures 3-4-5 (5-6) cm. Cast off and sew sock tog under foot up to casing mid back – sew in outer loops of sts to avoid a chunky seam.

Cut 3 threads measuring approx 100 cm each, twist the hard, fold them double and let them twist again. Tie a knot each end and thread string through casing on sock.
