PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Work entire pattern in stockinette st.

HEEL:
Worked back and forth in stockinette st with red.
ROW 1 (= RS): Work until 1 st remain, turn piece.
ROW 2 (= WS): Slip first st as if to P, tighten yarn and work until 1 st remain, turn piece.
ROW 3 (= RS): Slip first st as if to K, tighten yarn and work until 2 sts remain, turn piece.
ROW 4 (= WS): Slip first st as if to P, tighten yarn and work until 2 sts remain, turn piece.
Continue like this until 15 sts remain in the middle on the needle. Continue back and forth but now work 1 st more for every row over heel. To avoid holes in the transitions, lift the yarn before the st to be knitted up and slip it twisted on the needle. Work the yarn tog with st. Work like this until all heel sts have been worked.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec as follows before marker: Beg 3 sts before marker, K 2 tog, K 1.
Dec as follows after marker: K 1, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
----------------------------------------------------------

CHRISTMAS STOCKINETTE:
Cast on 60 sts on double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 - distribute sts so that there are 15 sts on each of the 4 double pointed needles. Work in stockinette st for 3 cm / 1''. Work A.1 (= 10 sts) 6 times on round in total. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.2 (= 20 sts) 3 times on round in total. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.3 (= 15 sts) 4 times on round in total. When A.3 has been worked 1 time in total vertically (piece measures approx. 30 cm / 11 3/4''), cut the yarn.

Now work heel over sts from 1st and 4th needle (= 30 sts), slip the other 30 sts (= on top of foot) on 1 stitch holder. Beg from RS and work HEEL - see explanation above. Cut the yarn, round now beg mid under heel, i.e. in 15th st mid under heel. Then slip the 30 sts from stitch holder back on needle and work in the round over all 60 sts as follows:
Work A.4 (= 15 sts) 4 times on round in total. When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.5 (= 4 sts) 15 times on round in total. When A.5 has been worked 1 time vertically, approx. 4.5 cm / 1 3/4'' remain until finished measurements.

Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 30 sts on top of foot and 30 sts under foot. Then work in stockinette st with red while AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of each marker as follows: Dec every other round 2 times in total and then every round 6 times in total - READ DECREASE TIP = 28 sts remain on needle. Fasten off. Place the sock flat and sew tog sts on the top side of toe with sts on the under side with grafting/kitchener stitches. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold cast-on edge inwards at first eyelet hole, fasten with small stitches on the inside without tightening.

TWINED STRING WITH POMPOMS:
Cut 2 lengths off white yarn of 3 metres each. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Make 2 gray pompoms approx. 6 cm / 2 3/8'' in diameter. Thread yarn through eyelet hole below folding edge and fasten a pompom in each end of string.

TWINED STRING (LOOP):
Cut 2 lengths off white yarn of 70 cm / 27½'' each. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Thread string through 2 holes mid back on sock and tie them tog on the inside, use this to hang the Christmas stockinette.

New to knitting socks, I have mastered all 3 graphs and am now ready to start the heel. I don't understand what I am to do with last stitch remaining on row 1 of instructions for heel. Where is this stitch to be? Can you please explain? Thanks!

Dear Mrs Allen, This video shows how to knit a diagonal heel, ie how to leave 1 st unworked at the end of each row then how to knit them back for 2nd part of heel. Happy knitting!

Hei, denne ble større enn forventet😅 går det ann å tove Nepal?

Hei Strikkeguri. Ja, Nepal kan toves. Du kan lese mer om garnet (vaskeanvisning med mer) her. God fornøyelse.

I can't seem to find directions for the grey cuff with eyelets. Is this in the pattern?

Dear Mrs Emery, the grey cuff is worked when knitting diagram A.1. Happy knitting!
