DECREASING TIP: Dec 1 st on each side of the first repeat of M.1 – beg 2 sts before M.1: slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, M.1, K2 tog.

HEEL DECREASES:
ROW 1 (= RS): Work row until 6-7-7 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, turn piece.
ROW 2 (= WS): Work row until 6-7-7 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to P, P1, psso, turn piece.
ROW 3 (= RS): Work row until 5-6-6 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, turn piece.

SOCK: Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 234-250-266 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Alpaca. K 2 rounds and work next round as follows: K2, * K2 tog, K2 *, repeat from *-* = 176-188-200 sts. K 1 round and on next round K2 tog across the round = 88-94-100 sts. K 1 round, P 1 round and K 1 round. Insert a marker at beg of round. Continue in rib, K1/P1, for 2 cm. K 1 round, AT THE SAME TIME dec 6 sts evenly = 82-88-94 sts. Continue as follows: 18-20-22 stocking sts, M.1 (= mid back), 25-28-31 stocking sts, M.1 (= mid front) and 7-8-9 stocking sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 8 cm dec 1 st on each side of the first repeat of M.1 - SEE DECREASING TIP – and repeat the dec on every 2 cm a total 14-15-16 times = 54-58-62 sts. Continue until piece measures approx 40-42-44 cm – adjust to a full repeat of M.1. Now keep the first 24-26-28 sts on round for heel and slip the last 30-32-34 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot). Work stocking st back and forth on heel sts for 5-5.5-6 cm. Insert a marker in piece. Now dec for heel – see above. After heel dec pick up 13-14-16 sts on each side of heel and slip the 30-32-34 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 70-74-82 sts. Now insert a marker on each side of the 30-32-34 sts on upper foot and continue in the round in stocking st and M.1 mid upper foot, AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: K tog the last 2 sts before the first marker into back of loop, and K tog the first 2 sts after the second marker. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 9-9-11 times = 52-56-60 sts. Continue until piece measures 18-20-22 cm from marker on heel (= approx 4-4-5 cm remain). Now insert a marker each side with 26-28-30 sts on upper foot and 26-28-30 sts under foot. Continue in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st on each side of both markers as follows: K tog 2 sts before marker and K tog 2 sts into back of loop after marker. Repeat the dec each side on every other round a total of 5-6-7 times and then on every round 5-4-4 times = 12-16-16 sts left on round. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
