BLANKET
Garter st, back and forth on needle: K all rows.

Pattern: See diagram M.1. Diagram shows the pattern from the RS.

Worked back and forth on circular needle. If you would like the blanket wider cast on an extra 20 sts (= 1 repeat of M.1 across the row). Cast on 110 sts on circular needle size 7 mm with 4 threads Alpaca. Cut 2 threads and continue in 2 threads. Work 6 rows garter st – see above – and continue as follows from RS: 5 garter sts, M.1 (= 20 sts) a total of 5 times, 5 garter sts. Remember the knitting tension! Continue in pattern like this until piece measures approx 143 cm – adjust to a full repeat of M.1 – and work 6 rows garter st. Cast off with 4 threads.

________________________________________
SOCKS
Double moss st:
Row 1: * K2, P2 *, repeat from *-*.
Row 2: K over K and P over P.
Row 3: P over K and K over P.
Row 4: K over K and P over P.
Repeat row 1-4.

HEEL
Work 1 row on heel sts, at the same time dec 4 sts evenly = 16-18-20 sts. Continue in stocking st, at the same time slip 1 st at the end of every row on a stitch holder. Continue like this until there are 5-6-7 sts on stitch holder each side of heel = 6-6-6 sts left on needle.
Insert a Marking Thread (MT) in piece. Continue like before, but now work 1 st from stitch holder back on needle at the end of every row.
Note! To avoid holes, pick up 1 st between stitch holder and needle and work this st tog with st from stitch holder on next row. Continue like this until there are 16-18-20 sts on needle. Work 1 row on all sts.

SOCKS
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 52-56-60 sts on needle size 4 mm with 1 thread of each quality. K 2 rounds and continue in rib, K2/P2. After 6 rounds rib continue in double moss st – see above. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 30-31-34 cm keep the first 10-11-12 sts on needle, slip the next 32-34-36 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot) and keep the last 10-11-12 sts on needle = 20-22-24 sts for heel. Work Heel – see above.
When heel is completed slip sts from stitch holder back on needle = 48-52-56 sts. Insert 2 new MT in piece, 1 after the first 8-9-10 sts and 1 after 40-43-46 sts (= 32-34-36 sts between each MT = upper foot). Continue in double moss st on sts on upper foot and stocking st on remaining sts under foot. At the same time when piece measures 6-7-7 cm from MT on heel dec as follows: K tog the last 2 sts before the 32-34-36 sts on upper foot into back of loop and K tog the first 2 sts after the 32-34-36 sts on upper foot. Dec like this on every other round a total of 6 times = 36-40-44 sts. Continue in double moss st and stocking st like before until piece measures 18-19-21 cm from MT on heel (= approx 4-5-6 cm left). Remove all MT and insert 2 new MT each side with 18-20-22 sts on upper foot and 18-20-22 sts under foot. Continue in stocking st on all sts, at the same time dec for toes on each side of both MT as follows: work round until 3 sts before MT, K2 tog, K2 (MT sits between these 2 sts), K2 tog into back of loop. Dec like this on every other round a total of 3-5-8 times and then on every round 4-3-0 times = 8-8-12 sts left. On next round work all sts tog 2 by 2. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
