HEEL DECREASES: Work heel in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME slip 1 st at the end of every row on a stitch holder. Continue until there are 9-11-12 sts on stitch holders each side and 12-14-16 sts left on needle.
Insert a marker in piece. Continue in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME work 1 st from stitch holder back on needle at the end of every row. NOTE: to avoid a hole pick up 2 sts between sts on needle and sts on stitch holder. On next row work these 2 sts and st from stitch holder tog to 1. Continue like this until there are 30-36-40 sts on needle. Work 1 row stocking st on all sts.
SOCK: Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 130-150-170 sts on double pointed needle size 2.5 mm with Fabel. Work picot border as follows: * 10 stocking sts, now lift st 9, then st 8, st 7, st 6, st 5 and st 4 over st 10 (i.e the last of the 10 stocking sts) = 4 sts left *, repeat from *-* = 52-60-68 sts left on round. Continue in stocking st on all sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 10 cm keep the first 30-36-40 sts on needle for heel and slip the last 22-24-28 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot). Now dec for heel – SEE HEEL DECREASES! After heel decreases slip sts from stitch holder back on needle = 52-60-68 sts. Continue in the round in stocking st on all sts. When piece measures 18-19-21 cm from marker on heel (= approx 4-5-6 cm remain), insert a marker each side with 26-30-34 sts on upper foot and 26-30-34 sts under foot. Now dec for toes on each side of both markers as follows: K2 tog before marker, K2 tog into back of loop after marker. Repeat the dec on every other round 5-6-7 times and then on every round 5-6-7 times = 12 sts left. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
