Diagrams A.1 to A.4. Work all sts in stocking st.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 72-72-72 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with red. K 1 round, then work 4 rounds rib = K 1/P 1. Then work A.1 (= 12 sts) over all sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION On last round in A.1 adjust no of sts to 66-72-72. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work as follows: A.2a (= 5 sts), A.2b (= 23-29-29 sts – see diagram for correct size), A.2c (= 5 sts), A.3 (= 33 sts). NOTE: On round 13 dec 1 st on each side of A.3 as shown in diagram = 64-70-70 sts. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, slip the first 33-39-39 sts on round (= A.2a, A.2b and A.2c) on 1 stitch holder = 31-31-31 sts for heel. Work A.4 (= 31 sts) over heel sts for 5-5½-6 cm, insert a marker – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above - continue pattern according to A.4. After heel decrease, pick up 12-13-14 sts on each side of heel (pick up alternately red and light pearl grey to fit diagram A.4) and slip the 33-39-39 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 72-80-82 sts. Continue the 33-39-39 sts on top of foot in A.2a, A.2b and A.2c as before, work sts under foot in A.4 as before. AT THE SAME TIME dec on each side sts on top of foot as follows: K the 2 sts before A.2a tog with red and K the 2 sts after diagram A.2c twisted tog with red (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front), repeat dec every other round a total of 6 times = 60-68-70 sts. Continue until piece measures 17-18-21 cm from marker on heel (= 5-6-6 cm remain). Then work as follows: A.2a, A.4 over the next 23-29-29 sts, A.2c, A.4 over the next 27-29-31 sts. AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of A.2a and A.2c. Dec as follows before A.2a./A.2c: K tog the last 2 sts with red. Dec as follows after A.2a./A.2c: Slip first st as if to K, K 1 with red, psso. Dec like this every other round a total of 6-9-9 times and then every round a total of 4-1-1 times = 20-28-30 sts remain on needle. On next round, K all sts tog 2 by 2 with red = 10-14-15 sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
