PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Work all diagrams in stocking stitch.

HEEL DECREASE:
Row 1 (= right side): Knit until 9 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch knitted, turn piece.
Row 2 (= wrong side): Purl until 9 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch purled, turn piece.
Row 3 (= right side): Knit until 8 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch knitted, turn piece. 
Row 4 (= wrong side): Purl until 8 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch purled, turn piece. 
Continue decrease like this with 1 stitch less before each decrease until there are 15 stitches on needle.
--------------------------------------------------------

SOCK: 
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. 
Cast on 72 stitches in all sizes on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with picnic. Knit 1 round, continue with rib = knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION Continue with A.1 - AT THE SAME TIME on first round decrease 6-0-0 stitches evenly = 66-72-72 stitches, and on last round decrease 0-2-2 stitches evenly = 66-70-70 stitches. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work as follows: A.2 (= 3 stitches), A.3 (= 25-29-29 stitches), A.2 (= 3 stitches) and A.4 (= 35 stitches) - decrease as shown in A.4. When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 62-66-66 stitches on needle (When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.3 upwards). Now slip the first 31-35-35 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= stitches over A.2 + A.3 + A.2) = 31 stitches remain on needle for heel. Work A.5 over heel stitches for 5-5½-6 cm, insert 1 marker on last row, then work HEEL DECREASE – see explanation above. After heel decrease, work in stocking stitch in the round: First work A.5 over the 15 heel stitches, pick up 12-13-14 stitches in A.5 on side of heel, work A.2 and A.3 as before over stitches on stitch holder and pick up 12-13-14 stitches in A.5 on the other side of heel = 70-76-78 stitches. Then decrease on each side of the 31-35-35 stitches on top of foot as follows: Knit the 2 stitches before the 31-35-35 stitches on top of foot together and knit the 2 stitches after the 31-35-35 stitches on top of foot twisted together. Decrease every other round 6 times in total = 58-64-66 stitches. Continue pattern until piece measures 18-19-22 cm from marker on heel (= approx. 4-5-5 cm remain). Then work as follows: A.2 as before over the stitches in each side, A.5 over the 25-29-29 stitches on top of foot and the 27-29-31 stitches under foot - AT THE SAME TIME decrease for toe on each side of A.2 in each side as follows: Work until 2 stitches remain before A.2, knit 2 together, work A.2, then knit 2 twisted together. Repeat decrease every other round 3-6-6 more times and then every round 5-3-3 times = 22-24-26 stitches remain on round. On next round knit all stitches together 2 by 2 with picnic = 11-12-13 stitches. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten.
