SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 64-64-68-68 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with light beige brown.
Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 5 cm / 2''. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 and K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 4-4-8-8 sts evenly = 60 sts. Insert a marker at beg of round = mid back. Work in stockinette st according to diagram A.1.
When piece measures 6-6-8-8 cm / 2½"-2½"-3"-3", dec 2 sts mid back - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 3-5-7-8 cm / 1"-2"-2 3/4"-3", 5-3-1-1 more times = 48-52-56-56 sts – NOTE: Pattern will not fit mid back when decreasing but make sure that pattern fits around the sock otherwise.
When A.1 has been worked, piece measures approx. 22 cm / 8 3/4''. Then work with light beige brown 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 on top of 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 5-5½-6-6½ cm / 2½"-2 1/4"-2½"-2 3/4". Insert a marker in middle of piece. Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above.
After heel dec, pick up 11-12-13-14 sts along each side of heel and slip the 24-26-28-28 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 58-64-68-70 sts. Insert a marker on each side of the 24-26-28-28 sts on top of foot.
Continue in stockinette st in the round while AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows: K the last 2 sts BEFORE the first marker on top of foot twisted tog and K the first 2 sts AFTER last marker on top of foot tog.
Repeat dec every other round 6-7-7-6 more times = 44-48-52-56 sts. Continue until piece measures 18-20-22-25 cm / 7"-8"-8 3/4"-9 3/4" from marker on heel (= approx. 4-4-5-5 cm / 1½"-1½"-2"-2" remain). Insert a marker in each side so that there are 22-24-26-28 sts both on top of foot and under foot.
Continue working in stockinette st while AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of both markers - SEE DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec).
Repeat dec every other round 3-3-4-4 more times and then every round a total of 5-6-6-7 times = 8 sts remain on needle.
Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
