KNITTING TIP-1:
To avoid too many thread ends work each square on row 1 with separate balls and let the balls follow the squares up through the rows.
KNITTING TIP-2:
Always pick up sts from RS.
WHOLE DOMINO SQUARE:
Worked as follows:
Insert a marker in the middle st.
Row 1 (= WS): K all sts
Row 2 (= RS): K sts on row until 1 st remain before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, K remaining sts on row.
Repeat row 1 and 2, i.e. dec 2 sts in the middle of square on every other row until there is 1 st left on needle, cut the thread and pull it through the last st.
HALF DOMINO SQUARE (horizontal):
Pick up 19-21-23 sts between 2 squares from previous row.
Work like whole domino square, but in addition to the dec in the middle of square also slip the last st at the end of every row (first time on first row from WS) on a stitch holder. Continue like this until there are 3-4-3 sts left on needle.
Size 35/37 + 41/43: 3 sts left on needle (i.e. 4-5 sts on stitch holder each side).
K 1 row from WS on the 3 sts. Work next row (= RS) as follows: slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining st.
Size 38/40: 4 sts left on needle.
Work next rows (= RS) as follows: slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, slip the last st on stitch holder at the side (i.e. 5 sts on stitch holder each side). Cut the thread and pull it through remaining st.
HALF DOMINO SQUARE (vertical):
Beg with 10-11-12 sts.
Row 1 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 2 (= RS): Work row until 2 sts before marker, K2 tog. On square at the end of row work mirrored, i.e. K tog the 2 sts after marker.
Repeat row 1 and 2, i.e. dec 1 st in square (towards under foot) on every other row until there is 1 st left. Cut the thread and pull through st.
HEEL DECREASES:
Row 1 (= RS): Work row until 6-7-7 sts remain, slip next st as if to K, K1, psso, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): Work row until 6-7-7 sts remain, slip next st as if to P, P1, psso, turn piece.
Row 3 (= RS): Work row until 5-6-6 sts remain, slip next st as if to K, K1, psso, turn piece.
Row 4 (= WS): Work row until 5-6-6 sts remain, slip next st as if to P, P1, psso, turn piece.
Continue dec like this with 1 st less before each dec until there are 14-14-16 sts on needle.

SOCK:
Beg working sock in the round from top of leg. Cast on 115-125-135 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Delight. P 1 round and work next round as follows: * K 10-11-12, slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, K 10-11-12 *, repeat from *-* 5 times = 105-115-125 sts. Turn piece (now continue back and forth on needle) and work WHOLE DOMINO SQUARE - see above – on the first 21-23-25 sts. See KNITTING TIP-1! Continue with WHOLE DOMINO SQUARE on the next 21-23-25 sts and across the row = 5 Domino squares in total. Now pick up 10-11-12 sts - See KNITTING TIP-2! along the edge on the last square from previous Row, pick up 1 st between this and the next square and pick up 10-11-12 sts along the edge on next square = 21-23-25 sts on needle. Work Domino square as before. Pick up sts in the same way between all the squares and work Domino square (= 2 Rows with 5 Domino squares each). On Row 3 pick up sts in the same way between the squares but on row 1 (= from WS) on each of the 5 squares dec 2 sts evenly = 19-21-23 sts. Work Domino squares on these sts. On Row 4 pick up 19-21-23 sts between all squares and work Domino squares as before. Continue like this until there us a total of 6 Rows with Domino squares, the leg of sock now measures approx 17-19-20 cm.

HEEL:
On next Row work 2 HALF DOMINO SQUARES (horizontal) - see above. After the 2 half Domino squares pick up (from RS) 1 st before the first half square, then work the 4-5-5 sts from stitch holder back on needle, pick up 2 sts between the 2 stitch holders, and work the 4-5-5 sts from the other stitch holder back on needle and pick up 2 sts between the 2 half squares, work 4-5-5 sts from stitch holder back on needle, pick up 2 sts between the 2 stitch holders, work 4-5-5 sts from the other stitch holder back on needle and pick up 1 st after the last half square = 24-28-28 sts. P 1 row from WS at the same time dec 0-2-0 sts evenly = 24-26-28 heel-sts. Work stocking st back and forth on heel-sts for 5-5.5-6 cm. Insert a marker. Now dec for heel - see HEEL DECREASES. After heel dec pick up 13-14-16 sts each side of heel = 40-42-48 sts. Slip sts on a stitch holder.

UPPER FOOT 1:
Pick up 19-21-23 sts for domino squares as before and work 3 Domino squares on upper foot.

Insert a marker each side of the 40-42-48 sts from stitch holder (= under foot). Continue back and forth on needle in stocking st on sts under foot, at the same time work HALF DOMINO SQUARE (vertical) - see above - each side. AT THE SAME TIME dec on sts under foot (from RS) each side as follows: K tog the first 2 sts after first marker and K tog into back of loop the last 2 sts before second marker. Dec like this on every other row a total of 13-14-15 times (= 14-14-18 sts left under foot). Continue until the half Domino squares each side are complete (dec are not completed but will continue later on).
Slip sts under foot on a stitch holder.

UPPER FOOT 3:
Pick up sts for squares as before and work 2 Domino squares on upper foot.
Now pick up sts for next Row with squares but work 3 half Domino squares (horizontal).

Slip the 14-14-18 sts from under foot back on needle, pick up 1 st before the first Half Domino square, * work the 4-5-5 sts from stitch holder back on needle, pick up 2 sts between stitch holders, work the 4-5-5 sts from stitch holders back on needle *, pick up 2 sts between squares, work from *-*, pick up 2 sts between squares, work from *-* and pick up 1 st after the last Half Domino square = 50-56-60 sts. Continue in the round. Work stocking st on all sts until piece measures approx 18-19-21 cm from marker on heel (approx 4-5-6 cm remain).
Insert a marker each side with 25-28-30 sts on upper foot and 25-28-30 sts under foot. Continue in stocking st, at the same time dec for toes each side of both markers. Dec as follows before K1 and marker: K2 tog. Dec as follows after marker and K1: K2 tog into back of loop. Dec like this each side on every other round a total of 4-5-8 times and then on every round 6-6-3 times = 10-12-16 sts left on needle. K2 tog across next round.
