SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 50-56-60 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1or2 with Fabel. K 1 round, continue in rib = K1/P1 for 2-2-3 cm / 3/4"-3/4"-3 1/8". Now keep the first 21-21-25 sts on needle for heel and slip the last 29-35-35 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot). Work in stockinette st back and forth on heel sts for 5-5.5-6 cm / 2''-2¼''-2 3/8''. Insert a marker in the middle of heel - now measure piece from here! Now dec for heel - see HEEL DECREASE! After heel dec, knit up 13-14-15 sts along each side of heel and slip the 29-35-35 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 68-76-80 sts. Insert a marker in each side of the middle 29-29-35 sts on upper foot. Continue in stockinette st under foot, work the 29-29-35 sts on upper foot as follows: M.1A (= 2 sts), repeat M.1B over the next 24-24-30 sts (= 4-4-5 times) and finish with M.1C (= 3 sts).
AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: K tog the 2 last sts before the 29-29-35 sts twisted (i.e knit in the back loop instead of front) and K tog the first 2 sts after the middle 29-29-35 sts on upper foot. Repeat the dec every other round a total of 10-12-12 times = 48-52-56 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 in the first st in each side so that there are 23-25-27 sts on upper foot and 23-25-27 sts under foot.
Continue in stockinette st over all sts while AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes in each side of the markers as follows - beg 2 sts before the marker: K2 tog, K1 (marker is in this st), K2 twisted tog. Continue dec in each side on every other round a total of 4-7-6 times and then on each round a total of 6-4-6 times = 8 sts left on needle. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
