SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles from the top down. Cast on 52-52-56-64 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2or3 with red. K 1 round and continue in rib, P2/K2. When rib measures 4-5-5-6 cm / 1½"-2"-2"-2 3/8" K 1 round, AT THE SAME TIME dec 4-4-8-4 sts evenly = 48-48-48-60 sts. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4. K 1 round with off-white and now work M.1 on all sts (= 4-4-4-5 repeats across the round). After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 keep the first 12-12-13-15 sts on needle, slip the next 24-24-22-30 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot) and keep the last 12-12-13-15 sts on needle = 24-24-26-30 sts for heel. Work stockinette st back and forth on needle on heel sts with red for 4.5-5-5.5-6 cm / 1 3/4"-2''-2¼''-2 3/8''. Insert a marker. Now work HEEL DECREASES – see above! After heel dec pick up 10-10-12-10 sts each side of heel and slip the 24-24-22-30 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 52-52-56-60 sts.
Insert a marker each side of the 24-24-24-32 sts mid upper foot.
Continue in the round in stockinette st and M.2 as follows:
M.2 on the 24-24-24-32 sts mid upper foot, 4 stockinette sts in off-white, M.2 on the next 20-20-24-20 sts (= under foot), 4 stockinette sts in off-white.
AT THE SAME TIME dec each side of heel as follows: K tog the first 2 sts after the 24-24-24-32 sts on upper foot and K tog into back of loop the last 2 sts before the 24-24-24-32 sts on upper foot. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 4 times = 44-44-48-52 sts. Now continue in M.2 on all sts until piece measures approx 15-18-20-22 cm / 6"-7''-8''-8¾'' from marker on heel (= approx 4-4-4-5 cm / 1½"-1½''-1½''-2'' remain). K 1 round in off-white on all sts.
Now insert 1 marker each side with 22-22-24-26 sts on upper foot and under foot. Continue in the round in red stockinette st on all sts.

Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 3-3-3-4 times and then on every round a total of 6-6-7-7 times = 8 sts left on needle. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.
