KNITTING TIP:
When turning mid piece tighten thread in order to avoid a hole in transition.

ASSEMBLY TIP:
The toes need to be tightened tog. Insert a thread in the outer loop of the outermost st towards the toe and let this thread follow piece. Use this thread to tighten toe tog.

Cast on 88-95-102 sts on needle size 4 mm with 1 thread of each colour. Now work elevation on the back of leg as follows (row 1 = RS):
Work 8 sts, turn piece and work return row.

Now dec for heel as follows (from RS):
Insert a marker in st no 45-50-53 (from the side with elevation). Dec 1 st on each side of st with marker on every other row a total of 8 times = 72-79-86 sts. Work garter st back and forth on needle until piece measures 9-11-13 cm from the last HEEL DECREASE.
Now inc for heel as follows:
Insert a marker in st no 37-42-45 (from the side with elevation). Inc 1 st on each side of st with marker on every other row a total of 8 times = 88-95-102 sts. Work 4 rows on all sts (remember shortened rows towards the toe). Now work elevation on the back of leg as follows:

Slip all sts on a stitch holder.

Pick up 46-50-54 sts inside 1 st along the top of leg. K 1 row from WS and K 1 row from RS, AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts evenly = 50-54-58 sts. Continue in rib K2/ P2 with 1 edge st each side. When rib measures approx 5 cm cast off with K over K and P over P.
