SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 64-64-68 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with ruby red. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 4-4-8 sts evenly = 60-60-60 sts. Then continue pattern according to diagram A.1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME on round marked with arrow A in diagram, dec 3 sts evenly = 57 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow B in diagram, dec 1 st = 56 sts.
When A.1 has been worked, piece measures approx. 22 cm. Continue in the round in stocking st with grey – AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round dec 8-4-0 sts evenly = 48-52-56 sts.
When piece measures 23-24-25 cm, keep the first 12-13-14 sts on needle for heel, slip the next 24-26-28 sts on 1 stitch holder (= mid upper foot - NOTE: Work sts before slipping them on stitch holder) and keep the last 12-13-14 sts on needle for heel. Continue in stocking st back and forth over the 24-26-28 heel sts for 5-5½-6 cm. Insert 1 marker in mid of row, MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above. After heel dec, pick up 11-12-13 sts along each side of heel and slip the 24-26-28 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 58-64-68 sts. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 24-26-28 sts on top of foot. Continue in stocking st in the round while AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows: K the 2 last sts BEFORE marker on top of foot tog and K the first 2 sts AFTER marker on top of foot twisted tog. Repeat dec every other round 6-7-7 more times (= 7-8-8 times in total) = 44-48-52 sts. Remove the 2 markers.
When piece measures 18-20-22 cm from marker on heel (= approx. 4-4-5 cm remain), insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 22-24-26 sts both on upper foot and under foot. Continue working with grey while AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of both markers - SEE DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every other round 3-3-4 more times (= 4-4-5 times in total) and then every round 5-6-6 times = 8 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
