Cast on 64-64-68-68 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm/ US 1or2 with off white. Work in rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm/ 1½".

ALL SOCKS: Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm/ US 4, and work 1 round in stocking st while at the same time dec 4-4-8-8 sts evenly = 60 sts.

When diagram M.3 has been worked, 56 sts remain on needle.
Continue with diagram M.4, AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round of diagram M.4, dec 8-4-0-0 sts evenly = 48-52-56-56 sts.
When diagram M.4 has been worked, piece measures approx. 22 cm / 8 3/4''. Work sock with dark brown mix until finished.
Work until piece measures 23-24-25-26 cm / 9"-9½"-9 3/4"-10 1/4".
On next round, keep the first 12-13-14-14 sts on needle for heel, slip the next 24-26-28-28 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot) and keep the last 12-13-14-14 sts on needle for heel.
Continue in stockinette st back and forth over the 24-26-28-28 heel sts for 5-5½-6 cm / 2"-2 1/4"-2 3/8"-2½".

Insert a marker on each side of the middle 24-26-28-28 sts on upper foot.
Continue in stockinette st in the round while AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows:

Repeat dec on every other round a total of 4-4-5-5 times and then on every round a total of 5-6-6-7 times = 8 sts remain on needle.
