INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Choose diagram for your size. The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.

DECREASE TIP-1:
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needles (e.g. 63 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 3) = 21.
In this example, knit together every 20th and 21st stitch.

KNITTING TIP (for heel):
To strengthen the heel, you can work heel and heel decrease with 2 strands as follows: Use the strand from both the inside and outside of the ball and work 1 stitch alternately with first the one then the other strand. In this way you get a slightly thicker heel without working with a double strand.

HEEL DECREASE:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit until there are 7-7-8-8 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch, turn the piece.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Purl until there are 7-7-8-8 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over the purled stitch, turn the piece.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit until there are 6-6-7-7 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch, turn the piece.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Purl until there are 6-6-7-7 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over the purled stitch, turn the piece.
Continue decreasing in the same way, with 1 less stitch before slipping 1 stitch, until there are 12-14-14-14 stitches left on the needle.

DECREASE TIP-2 (for toe):
Work until there are 2 stitches left before the marker, knit 2 together, marker, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles. Cast on 63-63-69-69 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and wine red. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 4 cm. 
Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and knit 1 round where you decrease 3-3-5-5 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 60-60-64-64 stitches. Work A.1 (= 15-15-16-16 repeats of 4 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 has been completed, knit 1 round with off white where you decrease 2 stitches, in all sizes, evenly on round = 58-58-62-62 stitches. The next round is worked as follows: Work A.2A (= 5-5-7-7 stitches), work A.2B over the next 48 stitches (= 3 repeats of 16 stitches in all sizes) and finish with A.2C (= 5-5-7-7 stitches). Continue the pattern in this way. AT THE SAME TIME on the last round of A.2 decrease 4-4-2-2 stitches evenly on round = 54-54-60-60 stitches. Continue working A.3 (= 9-9-10-10 repeats of 6 stitches). On the last round of A.3 decrease 6-2-6-4 stitches evenly on round = 48-52-54-56 stitches. When A.3 has been completed, the piece measures approx. 20 cm. The sock is now continued in stocking stitch with light grey. When the piece measures 21-22-23-24 cm keep the first 12-13-14-14 stitches on the needle for heel, place the next 24-26-26-28 stitches on 1 thread (= mid top of foot) and keep the last 12-13-14-14 stitches on the needle for heel. Read KNITTING TIP and work stocking stitch back and forth over the 24-26-28-28 heel stitches for 5-5½-6-6½ cm. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the row - THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Now work HEEL DECREASE – see description above. When the heel decrease is finished, knit up 11-12-13-14 stitches on each side of the heel and the 24-26-26-28 stitches from the thread are placed back on the needles = 58-64-66-70 stitches. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 24-26-26-28 stitches on top of foot. Work stocking stitch in the round with light grey and decrease on each side of the 24-26-26-28 stitches on top of foot as follows: Knit together the last 2 stitches BEFORE the first marker on top of foot and knit twisted together the first 2 stitches AFTER the second marker on top of foot. Decrease in this way every 2nd round a total of 7-8-7-7 times = 44-48-52-56 stitches. Continue until the piece measures 18-20-22-25 cm from the marker on heel (there are approx. 4-4-5-5 cm left before finished length; you can try the sock on and work to desired length). Insert 1 marker in each side of the sock so that there are 22-24-26-28 stitches both on top and underneath the foot. Continue with stocking stitch and decrease to toe on each side of these two markers - read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease in this way every 2nd round a total of 4-4-5-5 times and then every round a total of 5-6-6-7 times = 8 stitches on needle in all sizes. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. Work another sock in the same way.
