GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

KNITTING TIP: When turning mid piece, slip first st. Tighten thread and continue as before. This is done to avoid holes in the transitions.

ASSEMBLY TIP: The toes is tightened tog, therefore insert 1 thread in front loop of outermost st towards the toe and let this follows upwards when working. Use this thread to tighten the toe tog at the end.
----------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
Remember the knitting tension! The sock is worked back and forth from mid under foot, over the instep and finished mid under foot. The entire sock is worked in GARTER ST - see explanation above. The sock is worked with short rows over the toe as follows:
Row 1: Work all sts.
Row 2: Work all sts.
Row 3: Work until 6-8-10 sts remain, turn - READ KNITTING TIP.
Row 4: Work back.
Repeat these 4 rows until finished measurements.

Cast on 60-67-74 sts on needles size 5 mm with 1 thread Big Fabel or 2 threads Fabel. First work an elevation in the back as follows:
Work 10 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 9 sts.
Work 15 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 14 sts.
Work 20 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 19 sts.
Size 40/42: Work 25 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 24 sts.
All sizes: Work 4 rows over all sts (remember short rows towards the toe - i.e. in the opposite side of elevation). READ ASSEMBLY TIP!

Now dec for heel as follows: Insert a marker in the 23rd-27th-30th st (from the side with elevation). Dec 1 st on each side of st with marker every other row a total of 7 times = 46-53-60 sts. Work in garter st until piece measures 8-10-12 cm from last dec.
Then inc for heel as follows: Insert a marker in the 16th-20th-23rd st (from the side with elevation). Inc 1 st on each side of st with marker every other row a total of 7 times = 60-67-74 sts. Work 4 rows over all sts.
Then work an elevation in the back as follows:
Size 40/42: Work 25 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 24 sts.
All sizes: Work 20 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 19 sts.
Work 15 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 14 sts.
Work 10 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 9 sts.
Slip all sts on a stitch holder. Knit another sock.

LEG:
Cast on 10 new sts on row and knit up 40-44-50 sts from RS along the upper edge of sock (short side with elevations) = 50-54-60 sts. Work in garter st for 10 cm, cast off. On the other sock work as follows: Knit up 40-44-50 sts from RS along upper edge of sock (short side with elevations) and cast on 10 sts at the end of row = 50-54-60 sts. Work in garter st for 10 cm, cast off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew sts from stitch holder and cast on edge tog with grafting/kitchener sts. The seam will go under foot and up along the back of leg. Tighten the toe tog. Sew on two buttons on each flap, sew through both layers.
