SOCK: Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 45-48-51 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with 1 thread of each color. Work 2 rounds stockinette st and continue in rib, P2/K1 until piece measures 10 cm / 4’’.
Now keep the first 20-20-23 sts on round for heel and slip the last 25-28-28 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot) – make sure the first and the last of these sts are K sts. Work stockinette st back and forth on heel sts for 5-5.5-6 cm / 2’’-2¼’’-2 3/8’’. Insert a marker in piece. Now dec for heel – see above. After heel dec pick up 10-11-12 sts on each side of heel and slip the 25-28-28 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 55-60-63 sts. Insert a marker on each side of the 25-28-28 sts on upper foot. Continue in the round with rib on upper foot as before and stockinette st on remaining sts – AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: K2 tog into back of loop before the first marker on upper foot, and K2 tog after the second marker on upper foot. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 8 times = 39-44-47 sts. Continue until piece measures 18-20-22 cm / 7’’-8’’-8¾’’ from marker on heel (= approx 4-4-5 cm / 1½’’-1½’’-2’’ remain). Now insert a marker each side with 19-22-24 sts on upper foot and 20-22-23 sts under foot. Continue in stockinette st on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st on each side of both markers as follows: work round until 3 sts before marker, K2 tog, K2 (marker sits between these 2 sts), K2 tog into back of loop. Repeat the dec each side on every other round a total of 4-3-4 times and then on every round 2-4-4 times = 15-16-15 sts left on round. K2 tog all the way round. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
