SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles from mid back. Cast on 44-48-52 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm with 1 thread off white and 1 thread sandy dust. K 2 rounds. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Then work rib K 2/P 2 until piece measures 6 cm. Insert a marker in 1st st on round (= mid back). Continue in stocking st. Then dec in the different sizes as follows:
Size 35/37: When piece measures 11 cm, dec 1 st on each side of st with marker.
Size 38/40: When piece measures 9 and 16 cm, dec 1 st on each side of st with marker. Size 41/43: When piece measures 10 and 17 cm, dec 1 st on each side of st with marker = 42-44-48 sts. Work until piece measures 24-25-26 cm. Now keep the first 9-10-11 sts on needle, slip the next 24-24-26 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot) and keep the last 9-10-11 sts on needle = 18-20-22 sts for heel. Work in stocking st back and forth over heel sts for 5-5½-6 cm. Insert a marker and measure the piece from here. Now dec for heel - see HEEL DECREASE! After heel dec, knit up 10-11-11 sts along each side of heel and slip the 24-24-26 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 54-56-60 sts. Insert a marker on each side of the middle 24-24-26 sts from stitch holder. Then work in stocking st while at the same time dec in each side on every other round a total of 8-8-8 times as follows: K the last 2 sts before sts on upper foot twisted tog (i.e. in back loop of st instead of front), K the first 2 sts after sts on upper foot tog = 38-40-44 sts. Work until piece measures 18-20-22 cm from marker on heel (= approx. 4-4-5 cm remain). Insert a marker in each side so that there are 19-20-22 sts on upper foot and 19-20-22 sts under foot.
Now dec for toe on each side of both markers: Dec as follows 3 sts before marker: K 2 tog, K1. Dec as follows after marker: K1, K 2 twisted tog. Continue dec in each side on every other round a total of 5-5-6 times and then on every round a total of 2-2-2 times = 10-12-12 sts remain on needle. On next round work all sts tog 2 by 2. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
