SOCKS: Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Loosely cast on 56-64-68 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1 with Fabel. K 1 round and work 3 rounds rib, P1 / K1. Now continue in rib, P3 / K1 (K1 over K1 from round with P1/K1). When piece measures 5 cm / 2'' continue as follows: P3, * K1, P3 *, repeat from *-* on the next 28-28-32 sts, K1 and M.1 on the next 24-32-32 sts = 59-68-72 sts. After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 continue with M.2 over M.1 (with remaining sts as before). Continue like this until piece measures approx 18-19-20 cm / 7"-7½"-8" – adjust to after 1 full repeat of M.2. Now keep the first 31-31-35 sts on needle for heel and slip the remaining 28-37-37 sts on a stitch holder (= upper foot).
Work rib back and forth on heel-sts as follows (from RS): * P1, K1 *, repeat from *-* and finish with P1. When heel measures 5-5.5-6 cm / 2''-2¼''-2 3/8'' insert a marker in piece. Now work HEEL DECREASES – see above! After heel dec pick up 13-14-15 sts each side of heel and slip the 28-37-37 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 69-80-84 sts. Insert a marker before the 28-37-37 sts on upper foot - this is now beg of round.
Continue as follows: K1, M.3 on the next 27-36-36 sts and stockinette st on remaining sts = 66-76-80 sts. After 1 vertical repeat of M.3 continue as follows: K1, * P1, K1 *, repeat from *-* on the next 24-32-32 sts and stockinette st on remaining sts - AT THE SAME TIME (after M.3) dec each side of the 25-33-33 sts rib on upper foot as follows: Before 25-33-33 sts: K2 tog into back of loop. After 25-33-33 sts: K2 tog. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 6-9-9 times = 54-58-62 sts. Continue until piece measures 18-19-22 cm / 7"-7½"-8 3/4" from marker on heel (= approx 4-5-5 cm / 1½"-2"-2" remain). Insert a marker each side with 27-29-31 sts on upper foot and under foot. Continue in stockinette st on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes 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 on every other round a total of 4-4-4 times and then on every round 7-8-9 times = 10 sts left on round. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.
