SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles, top down. Cast on 52-52-56-64 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with off white. K 1 round, continue in rib = P 2/K 2. When rib measures 4-5-5-6 cm, K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 4-4-8-4 sts evenly = 48-48-48-60 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. K 1 round with off white. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Then work chart M.1 over all sts (= 4-4-4-5 times). When chart M.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, 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 in stocking st back and forth over heel sts with light grey for 4½-5-5½-6 cm. Insert a marker. Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above! After heel dec, knit up 10-10-12-10 sts with light grey along 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 on each side of the middle 24-24-24-32 sts on upper foot. Continue in the round with chart M.2. AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows: K tog the first 2 sts after the 24-24-24-32 sts on upper foot and K twisted tog the last 2 sts before the 24-24-24-32 sts on upper foot (i.e. work in back loop of sts instead of front). Repeat the dec every other round a total of 4 times = 44-44-48-52 sts. When piece measures approx. 16-18-20-23 cm from marker on heel ((= approx. 3.5-3.5-3.5-4 cm remain), make sure 1 round with off white has been worked) K 1 round with dark mustard over all sts. Insert a marker in each side so that there are 22-22-24-26 sts on upper foot and under foot. Continue in the round in stocking st with dark mustard over all sts. AT THE SAME TIME dec for toe on each side of both markers as follows: 3 sts before marker: K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these 2 sts), K 2 twisted tog (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front). Repeat 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 remain on needle. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Use some left-over cerise to sew nose for each bunny. Use some left-over Alpaca in eco light grey to sew whiskers for each bunny.
