----------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on (32-34-36) 38-40-40 (42-42-44) sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm with 1 thread Big Fabel or 2 treads Fabel.
K 1 round, continue in rib = K 1/P 1 for (11-12-14) 15-18-19 (21-22-23) cm, keep the first (16-16-18) 18-20-20 (20-20-22) sts on needle for heel and slip the remaining (16-18-18) 20-20-20 (22-22-22) sts on a stitch holder (= mid on top of foot). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work in stocking st back and forth over heel sts for (3-3½-4) 4-4½-4½ (5-5-5) cm. Insert a marker in the piece. Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above!
After heel decrease, knit up (6-7-8) 8-9-9 (10-10-10) sts on each side of heel and slip the (16-18-18) 20-20-20 (22-22-22) sts from the stitch holder back on needle = (36-40-42) 44-48-48 (52-52-54) sts. Insert a marker on each side of the (16-18-18) 20-20-20 (22-22-22) sts on top of foot.
Continue to work in stocking st in the round - AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows: K tog the last 2 sts before the (16-18-18) 20-20-20 (22-22-22) sts on top of foot twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) and K tog the first 2 sts after the (16-18-18) 20-20-20 (22-22-22) sts tog. Repeat dec every other round a total of (4-4-5) 6-6-6 (6-6-5) times = (28-32-32) 32-36-36 (40-40-44) sts.
Continue to work until piece measures (8-8-9) 10-11-13 (14-16-18) cm from marker on heel (approx. (2-3-3) 3-4-4 (4-4-4) cm remain until finished measurements). Now insert a marker in each side so that there are (14-16-16) 16-18-18 (20-20-22) sts both on top of foot and under foot. On next round dec 1 st on each side of both markers for toe - SEE DECREASE TIP!
Repeat dec every other round a total of (2-3-3) 3-4-4 (3-3-3) times and then every round (2-2-2) 2-2-2 (4-4-5) times = 12 sts remain on needle. On next round K tog all sts 2 by 2.
Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Work in stockinette st back and forth over heel sts for (3-3½-4) 4-4½-4½ (5-5-5) cm / (1"-1¼"-1½") 1½"-1¾"-1¾" (2"-2"-2"). Insert a marker in the piece. The pattern doesn't tell me WHERE to place the marker! Am I right to assume it is in the middle? I am knitting socks for the first time and need as much help as I can get!

Dear Mrs Marks, you are correct, insert this marker in the middle of the heel sts, this marker will then be used for lenght of piece, to measure when you will start dec for toe. Happy knitting!
