See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Work entire pattern in stocking st.

Row 1 (= RS): K until 7-7-8-8 sts remain, slip next st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): P until 7-7-8-8 sts remain, slip next st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 3 (= RS): K until 6-6-7-7 sts remain, slip next st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 4 (= WS): P until 6-6-7-7 sts remain, slip next st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.
Continue dec like this with 1 less st before each dec until there are 12-14-14-14 sts on needle.

DECREASE TIP (applies to toe):
Dec on each side of markers as follows: Beg 2 sts before marker, K 2 tog, marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 2 sts dec).

Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 64-64-68-68 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with silver pink. 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 sts evenly = 60-60-64-64 sts. Insert 1 marker at beg of round = mid back. Work stocking st in the round according to diagram A.1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures approx. 6-8-8-8 cm, dec 4 sts evenly - NOTE: Adjust so that dec are done on a single-coloured round. Repeat dec every 6-5-5-5 cm a total of 3-2-2-2 times = 48-52-56-56 sts. When A.1 has been worked, piece measures approx. 22 cm. Continue to work in stocking st in the round with silver pink. When piece measures 23-24-25-26 cm, keep the first 12-13-14-14 sts on needle for heel, slip the next 24-26-28-28 sts on 1 stitch holder (= mid upper foot) and keep the last 12-13-14-14 sts on needle for heel. Continue with silver pink
and stocking st back and forth over the 24-26-28-28 heel sts for 5-5½-6-6½ cm. Insert 1 marker in middle of piece. Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above. After heel dec, pick up 11-12-13-14 sts on each side of heel with silver pink and slip the 24-26-28-28 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 58-64-68-70 sts. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 24-26-28-28 sts on top of foot. Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2 AT THE SAME TIME dec on each side of the 24-26-28-28 sts on top of foot as follows: K the last 2 sts BEFORE first marker on top of foot tog and K the first 2 sts AFTER last marker on top of foot twisted tog. Repeat dec every other round a total of 7-8-8-7 times = 44-48-52-56 sts. Continue to work until piece measures 18-20-22-25 cm from marker on heel (approx. 4-4-5-5 cm remain until finished measurements).
Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 22-24-26-28 sts on top of foot and 22-24-26-28 sts under foot. Work in stocking st with silver pink while AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of both markers - SEE DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec on every other round 4-4-5-5 times in total and then on every round 5-6-6-7 times in total = 8 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Knit another sock.
