ENTRELAC PATTERN:
See diagram D.1 and D.2 for rows, squares and knitting direction.
HEEL DECREASES:
Work stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME slip 1 st at the end of every row on a stitch holder. Continue until there are 11-11-12 sts on stitch holders each side and 12-15-16 sts left on needle.
Insert a marker in piece. Continue, AT THE SAME TIME work 1 st from stitch holders each side 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 K tog the 3 new sts to 1 st. Continue like this until there are 34-37-40 sts on needle again. K 1 row from RS on all sts.
--------------------------------------------------------

LEG:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Make up 6 smaller balls to avoid too many thread ends.
Cast on 64-72-80 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Fabel. K 1 round and continue in rib K2/P2. When rib measures approx 3-4-5 cm dec all K2 to K1 = 48-54-60 sts.
Now continue in ”squares”. All the squares are worked back and forth on needle in stocking st and all sts are pick up from RS. See D.1.

Row 1, first Half Square (first row = RS):
Work 1 st, turn piece and work 1 st on return row. Work 2 sts, turn piece, work 2 sts on return row. Continue like this with 1 more st each time until you have worked return row on 8-9-10 sts. Work 8-9-10 sts from RS. Leave sts on needle.
Now work a total of 6 Half Squares in the same way round the sock = all sts in rib have been knitted.

Row 2, first Whole Square: Pick up 8-9-10 sts along the edge of the first half square. * Turn piece, work return row on the 8-9-10 sts, work 1 st from needle on the 6th half square = 9-10-11 sts. Turn piece, K2 tog, work remaining 7-8-9 sts = 8-9-10 sts *, repeat from *-* until all sts from the 6th Half Square have been knitted. Leave sts on needle, do not cut the thread.

Row 2, second Whole Square:
Beg a new ball. Beg mid between first and second Half Square. Pick up 8-9-10 sts along the edge of the second Half Square. Continue as described for first Whole Square from *-* until all sts from the first Half Square have been knitted.
Whole Square 3 to 6:
Like second Whole Square between all the Half Squares from Row 1 = a total of 6 Whole Squares.

Row 3 Whole Squares:
Beg with thread on the first Whole Square. Pick up 8-9-10 sts down along the edge of first Whole Square, work 1 st from second Whole Square = 9-10-11 sts. * Turn piece, P2 tog, work remaining 7-8-9 sts = 8-9-10 sts. Turn piece, work 8-9-10 sts and 1 st from second Whole Square = 9-10-11 sts *, repeat from *-* until all sts from second Whole Square have been knitted and there are 8-9-10 sts on needle. Leave sts on needle, do not cut the thread.
Now work Whole Squares in the round.

Work row 4 to row 8 with Whole Squares in the same way as before. See D-1 for rows, squares and knitting direction.
When there are a total of 8 rows with squares (includes the row with Half Squares at the beg) work 3 Half Squares as follows:
First Half Square:
Pick up 8-9-10 sts along the edge of the first square on row 8, work 1 st from the second square on the same row = 9-10-11 sts. Turn piece, P2 tog, work 6-7-8 sts, slip the last st on a stitch holder. Turn piece, work 7-8-9 sts, work 1 st from the second square, turn piece. P2 tog, work 5-6-7 sts, slip the last st on stitch holder. Continue like this until all sts from second square have been knitted and there are 8-9-10 sts on stitch holder.
Second and third Half Square:
Pick up sts and work Half Square in the same way as first Half Square. There are now 24-27-30 sts (3 x 8-9-10 sts) on stitch holder.
Pick up 1 st before sts on stitch holder, slip the first 8-9-10 sts on needle, pick up 1 st between the first and second Half Square, slip the next 8-9-10 sts from stitch holder back on needle, pick up 1 st between the second and third Half Square, slip the last 8-9-10 sts from stitch holder back on needle and pick up 1 st after sts on stitch holder = 28-31-34 sts on needle for heel. Turn piece and P 1 row from WS, AT THE SAME TIME inc 6 sts evenly on heel sts = 34-37-40 sts. Now work HEEL – see above.

Now work 6 Half Squares in the same way as Half Squares before the heel. There are now 48-54-60 sts on stitch holder (6 x 8-9-10 sts). Pick up 1 st between the first and the last square, * work 8-9-10 sts from stitch holder back on needle, pick up 1 st between 2 squares * repeat from *-* until all sts on stitch holder have been worked back on needle = 54-60-66 sts (approx 4-5-6 cm remain). Insert a marker each side with 27-30-33 sts on upper foot and 27-30-33 sts under foot. Now continue in stocking st on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of both markers as follows: Before K1 and marker: K2 tog. After marker and K1: K2 tog into back of loop. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 6-7-9 times and then on every 4th round 4 times = 14-16-14 sts left on needle. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.

Work 3 Half Squares on upper foot (square 4, 5 and 6) in the same way as Half Squares before the heel = 24-27-30 sts on stitch holder (3 x 8-9-10 sts).
Slip the 34-37-40 heel sts back on needle, pick up 1 st between heel sts on needle and the first 8-9-10 sts on stitch holder on upper foot. Slip the first 8-9-10 sts from stitch holder back on needle. Pick up 1 st between sts on needle and sts on stitch holder on upper foot. Slip the next 8-9-10 sts from stitch holder back on needle. Pick up 1 st between sts on needle and sts on stitch holder on upper foot. Slip the last 8-9-10 sts from stitch holder back on needle and pick up 1 st between sts on needle and heel sts = 62-68-74 sts in total on needle.
Continue in the round on double pointed needles as follows: 35-39-44 stocking sts, * P2, K2 *, on the next 24 sts, P2 and 1-3-4 stocking sts.
NOTE! In size 38/40 work the 3 stocking sts at the end of round as follows: K1 and K2 tog (= 2 stocking sts) = 62-67-74 sts.
Now continue in stocking st and rib, AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: K tog into back of loop the last 2 sts before the 26 rib sts on upper foot and K tog the 2 first sts after the 26 rib sts on upper foot. Dec on every other round a total of 5 times = 52-57-64 sts. Continue in stocking st and 26 sts rib on upper foot until piece measures 18-19-21 cm from marker on heel (= 4-5-6 cm remain). Insert a marker each side with 26-28-32 sts on upper foot and 26-29-32 sts under foot. Continue in stocking st on all sts. AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes each side of both markers as follows: Before K1 and marker: K2 tog. After marker and K1: K2 tog into back of loop. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 6-7-9 times and then on every 4th round 4 times = 12-13-12 sts left on needle. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.
