SOCKS:
Worked in the round.
Cast on 112-116-120 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1 with light beige. Work rib, K2/P2 for 8 cm / 3''. Change to off-white, work 1 round stockinette st – AT THE SAME TIME dec 16-20-24 sts evenly = 96 sts for all sizes. Continue in M.1. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
After M.1 piece measures approx 24 cm / 9½''. Work 1 round stockinette st in off-white – AT THE SAME TIME dec 8 sts evenly = 88 sts. Insert a marker at beg of round (= mid back). Continue in M.2 and work 3 vertical repeats, now complete piece in off-white. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 26 cm / 10 1/4'' dec 1 st each side of marker – SEE DECREASING TIP, repeat the dec on every 4-5-6 round a total of 14-12-10 times = 60-64-68 sts on needle (make sure not to shift pattern in M.2 as you dec).
When piece measures 43-44-46 cm / 17"-17 1/4"-18" keep the first 15-16-17 sts on needle for heel, slip the next 30-32-34 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot) and keep the last 15-16-17 sts on needle for heel. Continue in stockinette st back and forth on the 30-32-34 heel sts for 5-5.5-6 cm / 2''-2¼''-2 3/8'' - insert a marker. Now work HEEL DECREASES – see above.
After heel dec pick up 13-14-16 sts each side of heel and slip the 30-32-34 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 70-74-82 sts. Insert a marker each side of the 30-32-34 sts on upper foot. Continue in stockinette st in the round, AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: K tog into back of loop the last 2 sts BEFORE first marker on upper foot and K 2 tog the first 2 sts AFTER last marker on upper foot. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 9-9-11 times = 52-56-60 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 26-28-30 sts on upper foot and under foot. Continue in stockinette st, 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 mid between these 2 sts), K2 tog into back of loop. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 4-5-5 times and then on every round 7-7-8 times = 8 sts left on needle.
Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
