SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 54-61-68 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with Karisma. K 1 round and continue in rib as follows: P2-3-3, K2, P2-2-3, M.1 (= 15 sts), P2-2-3, K2, P2-3-3, K2, * P3, K2 *, repeat from *-* on remaining sts.
Continue in rib until there is 1 vertical repeat of M.1. Now continue in M.2 instead of M.1, with remaining sts as before.
Continue in M.2 like this until piece measures 21-22-23 cm. Now dec 1 st in each P-section by P tog the first 2 sts (incl P-sections before and after M.2, NOTE! do not dec on M.2) = 45-51-57 sts. Continue in rib and M.2. When piece measures 23-24-25 cm keep the first 23-25-27 sts on needle for heel, and slip the remaining 22-26-30 sts on a stitch holder = mid upper foot.
Work stocking st back and forth on the 23-25-27 heel sts for approx 5-5.5-6 cm. Insert a marker in piece. Now dec for HEEL - see HEEL DECREASES!
After heel dec pick up 11-13-15 sts each side of heel and slip sts from stitch holder back on needle = 55-63-71 sts. Insert a marker each side of the 22-26-30 sts mid upper foot. Continue in rib on sts on upper foot and stocking st under foot.
AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: K tog into back of loop the 2 sts before rib on upper foot and K tog the 2 sts after rib on upper foot on every other round a total of 7 times = 41-49-57 sts.
Continue until piece measures approx 18-19-21 cm (= approx 4-5-6 cm remain) from marker on heel. Insert a marker each side with 20-24-28 sts on upper foot and 21-25-29 sts under foot. Continue in stocking st on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes each side of both markers as follows: K tog the 2 sts before marker, and K tog into back of loop the 2 sts after marker. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 3 times and then on every round a total of 6-7-9 times = 5-9-9 sts. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.

Knit the other sock in the same way, but work M.3 instead of M.2.
