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

SOCK:
Cast on 72-76-80 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with colour no 912. K 2 rounds. Continue to work rib as follows: * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-*. When rib measures 4 cm, K 1 round while at the same time dec 8 sts evenly = 64-68-72 sts. Distribute sts on 4 double pointed needles = 16-17-18 sts on every needle. Then work in stocking st and displacement - see explanation above. When piece measures 10 cm, dec 1 st in every stripe from RS – dec by working the last 2 sts on every double pointed needle K tog (= 4 dec on 1 round). Adjust so that dec are done on 3rd or 5th row in pattern. Repeat dec when piece measures 15 and 20 cm = 52-56-60 sts (= 13-14-15 sts on every double pointed needle). When piece measures 23-24-25 cm, work a loose strand over the first 26-28-30 sts, sts on each side of this strand are used for heel later. On next row continue pattern as before (cut the yarn on the first 2 double pointed needles). Continue with displacement until piece measures 12-13-15½ cm from the loose strand (= approx. 5 cm remain). Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 26-28-30 sts on top of foot and 26-28-30 sts under foot - adjust so that toe fits with strand for heel. Continue working stocking st over all sts and in the round on needle with colour no 912 while AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of the markers. Dec as follows before 1 K st and marker: K 2 tog. Dec as follows after marker and 1 K st: K 2 twisted tog. Dec like this in each side on every other round a total of 7 times and then on every round a total of 3 times = 12-16-20 sts remain on needle. On next round work all sts tog 2 by 2. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.


HEEL:
Pull out the loose strand and distribute sts from each side of strand on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm = 52-56-60 sts. Beg in the side and work as follows with colour no 912 (soft chocolate): Work over 26-28-30 sts under heel, pick up 2 new sts in the side, work over the 26-28-30 sts on the back of heel and pick up 2 new sts in the side = 56-60-64 sts. Insert 1 marker between the 2 new sts in each side. Work in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side – Read DECREASE TIP! - repeat dec every other round a total of 9-10-11 times = 20 sts remain on needle. Work 1 round over all sts. Cast off. Sew tog heel with grafting/kitchener sts, st against st in cast-off edge. Heel measures 5-6-6½ cm in each side. Knit another sock the same way.
