SOCKS:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 55-60-65 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with 1 thread Big Fabel or 2 threads Fabel.
K 2 rounds and continue in rib K2/P3. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 20-22-23 cm / 8"-8 3/4"-9½" on next round dec all P3 to P2 = 44-48-52 sts.
Continue in rib K2/P2 until piece measures 30-31-32 cm / 11 3/4"-12 1/4"-12½".
Now keep the first 18-22-22 sts on needle for heel (the first 2 and last 2 of these sts are K sts), and slip the last 26-26-30 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot). Work stockinette st back and forth on heel sts for 5-5.5-6 cm / 2''-2¼''-2 3/8'', AT THE SAME TIME dec 0-2-0 sts evenly on first row = 18-20-22 sts. Insert a marker and now measure piece from here! Dec for heel – SEE HEEL DECREASES ABOVE!
After heel dec pick up 10-11-12 sts each side of heel and slip the 26-26-30 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 56-58-66 sts. Insert a marker each side of the 26-26-30 sts on upper foot. Continue in rib on the 26-26-30 sts on upper foot and work remaining sts in stockinette st - AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: K tog into back of loop the last 2 sts before sts on upper foot and K tog the first 2 sts after sts on upper foot. Dec on every other round a total of 8-7-9 times = 40-44-48 sts.
Continue in rib on the 26-26-30 sts on upper foot and in stockinette st on the 14-18-18 sts under foot until piece measures 20-22-24 cm / 8"-8 3/4"-9½" from marker on heel (= 4-5-6 cm / 1½''-2''-2 3/8'' remain).
Now insert a marker each side with 20-22-24 sts on upper foot and under foot. Complete sock in stockinette st on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec each side of both markers: Beg 3 sts before marker, K2 tog, K2 (marker sits between these 2 sts), K2 tog into back of loop. Dec on every other round a total of 3-4-5 times and then on every round 4-4-4 times = 12-12-12 sts left on needle. On next round K2 tog all the way round. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.
