SOCK:
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.

In der Anleitung wird von hellbeige gesprochen, ist damit die Farbe Nr. 71 silberrosa gemeint?

Liebe Frau Dettmar, Sie sind ja recht, es muss Silberrosa (= Farbe Nr71) sein. Anleitung wird korrigiert so bald wie möglich.
