INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN: See diagram A.1.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease as follows: Begin 3 stitches before marker thread:
Knit 2 stitches together, knit 2 stitches (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

HEEL DECREASE:
Worked in stocking stitch: 
ROW 1 (= right side): Work until 5-6-6 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch knitted, turn piece.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Work until 5-6-6 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch knitted, turn piece.
ROW 3 (= right side): Work until 4-5-5 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch knitted, turn piece.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Work until 4-5-5 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch knitted, turn piece.
Continue decrease like this with 1 stitch less before each decrease until there are 10-10-12 stitches.
-------------------------------------------------------

SOCKS: 
Worked in the round on double pointed needles from leg and down to toe.
Cast on 56-56-64 stitches on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with Nepal. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round = mid back. Knit 1 round, then work rib as follows: Knit 1, * purl 2, knit 2 *, repeat from *-* until 3 stitches remain and finish with purl 2 and knit 1.
Work rib for 4-5-5 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm, work next round as follows: 17-17-21 stitches in stocking stitch AT THE SAME TIME decrease 5-2-3 stitches evenly over these stitches, work A.1 over the next 22 stitches, work 17-17-21 stitches in stocking stitch AT THE SAME TIME decrease 5-2-3 stitches evenly over these stitches = 46-52-58 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue with A.1 with 12-15-18 stitches in stocking stitch in each side, AT THE SAME TIME decrease in the different sizes as follows:
SIZE 35/37: Continue to work without decrease
SIZE 38/40: When piece measures 9 and 16 cm, decrease 2 stitches mid back - READ DECREASE TIP. 
SIZE 41/43: When piece measures 8, 13 and 18 cm, decrease 2 stitches mid back - READ DECREASE TIP = 46-48-52 stitches. 

ALL SIZES: Work until piece measures 24-25-26 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Now keep the first 9-10-11 stitches on needle, slip the next 28-28-30 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= mid on top of foot) and keep the last 9-10-11 stitches on needle = 18-20-22 stitches for heel. Work in stocking stitch over heel stitches for 5-5½-6 cm. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of needle - now measure piece from here. Now decrease for heel - READ HEEL DECREASE. After heel decrease, pick up 10-11-11 stitches on each side of heel and slip the 28-28-30 stitches from stitch holder back on needle = 58-60-64 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread on each side of the 28-28-30 stitches from stitch holder. Then work in stocking stitch in the round and pattern A.1 as before while AT THE SAME TIME decreasing in each side every other round 8-8-8 times in total as follows: Knit the last 2 stitches before first marker on top of foot together and knit the first 2 stitches after last marker on top of foot twisted together = 42-44-48 stitches. 
Work until piece measures 18-20-22 cm from marker thread (= 4-4-5 cm remain). Insert 1 marker thread in each side so that there are 21-22-24 stitches on top of foot and 21-22-24 stitches under foot. Work in stocking stitch over all stitches. Then decrease for toes on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease in each side on every other round a total of 5-5-6 times and then on every round a total of 3-3-3 times = 10-12-12 stitches remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. Knit another sock the same way.

È possibile che ci sia un errore di battitura nella traduzione? (Nel paragrafo CALZE, dopo aver preso i ferri a d.p. n. 4) c'è un giro in cui dice di distribuire maglie, ma credo che ci siano diminuzioni da fare. Grazie in anticipo per la risposta
