RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

PATTERN: 
See diagram A.1.
----------------------------------------------------------

SOCK: 
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, top down.
Cast on 42 stitches for all sizes with double pointed needles size 3 mm and Cotton Merino. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above. Knit 1 round where you decrease 5 stitches evenly along the round in all sizes = 37 stitches. The next round is worked as follows: Work pattern according to diagram A.1A (= 2 stitches), A.1B (= 12 stitches) a total of 2 times in all sizes and finish with A.1C (= 11 stitches). Continue the pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 has been completed 1-1-1-2 times in height knit 1 round where you decrease 5-5-1-1 stitches evenly along the round = 32-32-36-36 stitches. Purl 1 round and knit 1 round. The next round is worked as follows: * Knit 2 together, 1 yarn over *, repeat from *-* the whole round (= edge of holes for the silk ribbon). Knit 1 round and purl 1 round. Then knit 1 round where you decrease 2-0-2-0 stitches evenly along the round = 30-32-34-36 stitches. Cut the strand.

FOOT:
Place the first 11-12-12-13 stitches at the beginning of the round and the last 11-12-12-13 stitches at the end of the round on a thread = 8-8-10-10 stitches left on the needle (= mid top of foot). Work 10-10-12-14 ridges back and forth over these stitches (= 20-20-24-28 rows and approx. 4-4-5-6 cm of garter stitch). Cut the strand. The next round is worked as follows (from the right side): Knit the 11-12-12-13 stitches from the thread at the beginning of the round, knit up 1 stitch in each ridge along the side of the mid piece (= 10-10-12-14 stitches), knit the 8-8-10-10 stitches at the front of the foot, knit up 1 stitch in each ridge along the other side of the mid piece (= 10-10-12-14 stitches) and knit the 11-12-12-13 stitches from the thread at the end of the round = 50-52-58-64 m. Purl 1 round. Insert 1 marker on each side of the middle 8-8-10-10 stitches at the front. Continue working garter stitch in the round AT THE SAME TIME as you increase on the first round 1 stitch in each side, on the inside of the 2 markers so that there are 10-10-12-12 stitches on the mid piece = 52-54-60-66 stitches. When you have worked 3-3½-4-5 cm from the markers in front (finish after a round with purl), work as follows:
ROUND 1: Knit 3, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over, knit 14-15-17-20 stitches, knit 3 together, knit 6-6-8-8, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over, knit until there are 6 stitches left on the round, knit 3 together and finish with knit 3 (= 8 stitches decreased 44-46-52-58 stitches on the needle).
ROUND 2: Purl.
ROUND 3: Knit 2, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over, knit 12-13-15-18 stitches, knit 3 together, knit 4-4-6-6, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over, knit until there are 5 stitches left on the round, knit 3 together and finish with knit 2 (= 8 stitches decreased and 36-38-44-50 stitches on the round).
ROUND 4: Purl.
ROUND 5: Knit 1, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over, knit 10-11-13-16 stitches, knit 3 together, knit 2-2-4-4, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over, knit until there are 4 stitches left on the round, knit 3 together and finish with knit 1 (= 8 stitches decreased and 28-30-36-42 stitches on the round).
ROUND 6: Purl. 
Stop here for Sizes 15/17 + 18/19.

SIZES 20/21 + 22/23: 
ROUND 7: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over, knit 11-14 stitches, knit 3 together, knit 2-2, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over, knit until there are 3 stitches left on the round, knit 3 together (= 8 stitches decreased and 28-34 stitches on the round).
ROUND 8: Purl.

ALL SIZES:
Work 1 ridge over all stitches.

ASSEMBLY:
Divide the stitches onto 2 needles with the same number on each needle (= mid under the foot). Lay the piece double and sew together lengthwise with grafting stitches – sew one stitch in each stitch. Work another sock in the same way.

PICOT EDGE:
Work a picot edge around the top of one of the socks. Start mid back and crochet with hook size 3 mm as follows: 1 double crochet in the first stitch, * 3 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet in the first chain stitch worked, skip 2 stitches on the sock, 1 double crochet in the next stitch*, repeat from *-* the whole round but finish with 1 slip stitch in the double crochet at the beginning of the round (instead of 1 double crochet in next stitch). Cut and fasten the strands. Work a similar edge around the other sock.

SILK RIBBON:
Cut the silk ribbon into two equal lengths. Start mid front on one of the socks and thread the ribbon up and down through the row of holes. Tie a bow mid front. Do the same on the other sock.
