PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

HEEL DECREASE:
Row 1 (= RS): Work until 7-8-8 sts remain, slip next st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): Work until 7-8-8 sts remain, slip next st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 3 (= RS): Work until 6-7-7 sts remain, slip next st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 4 (= WS): Work until 6-7-7 sts remain, slip next st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.

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

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 60-64-68 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Fabel. Work 1 round in stocking st. Continue in rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. K 1 round AT THE SAME TIME dec 6-6-6 sts evenly = 54-58-62 sts. Then work as follows: A.1 A (= 2 sts), A.1 B over the next 22-24-26 sts, A.1 C (= 2 sts), A.2 (= 6 sts), A.3 A (= 2 sts), A.3 B over the next 12-14-16 sts, A.3 C (= 2 sts), A.4 (= 6 sts). Continue this pattern. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 16-18-20 cm, keep the first 26-28-30 sts on needle for heel and slip the last 28-30-32 sts on 1 stitch holder (= mid on top of foot). Work in stocking st back and forth over heel sts for 5-5½-6 cm. Insert 1 marker in the piece. Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above. After heel dec, pick up 13-14-16 sts along each side of heel and slip the 28-30-32 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 68-72-80 sts. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 28-30-32 sts on top of foot, continue these sts in pattern as before, work the remaining sts in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows: K tog the last 2 sts before first marker on top of foot and K twisted tog the first 2 sts after last marker on top of foot (i.e. work in back loop of sts instead of front). Repeat dec every other round a total of 8-8-10 times = 52-56-60 sts. Work until piece measures 18-19-21 cm from marker on heel (= 4-5-6 cm remain). Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 26-28-30 sts both on top of foot and under foot. Continue working stocking st over all sts while AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of both markers as follows:
Before marker: K 2 tog. After marker: K 2 twisted tog. Repeat dec in each side every other round a total of 4-7-9 times and then every round a total of 6-3-2 times = 12-16-16 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. Knit another sock.

Also please clarify what you mean when you said to "use A.1 B over the next 22-24-26 sts" If I understand the diagram B = 4 sts. so am I doing B 5 1/2-6-6 1/2 times?

DROPS Design 06.11.2017 kl. 06:18:

Hi Valerie, Yes, you repeat the pattern of A.1B over the stitches and the pattern is repetitive, so it does not matter that you do not complete a full pattern if the number of stitches is too few. Happy knitting!
