INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.1).

DECREASE TIP-1 (applies to mid back on stocking):
Begin 2 stitches before A.3, knit 2 together, work A.3 (= 5 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to toe):
Begin 2 stitches before marker thread and knit 2 together, marker thread, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

KNITTING TIP (applies to heel):
To get a stronger heel the entire heel and heel decrease can be worked in 2 strands as follows: Use strand inside and outside of ball and work 1 stitch alternately with one and the other strand. This way you get a thicker heel without working with double strand.

HEEL DECREASE:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit until 7-8-8 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 7-8-8 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 6-7-7 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 6-7-7 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 15-15-17 stitches on needle.
----------------------------------------------------------

STOCKING:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles, top down. Rounds begin mid back.
Cast on 115 stitches somewhat loosely in all sizes on circular needle size 2.5 mm with Nord. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Then work A.1 in the round (= 5 repetitions of 23 stitches). When A.1 has been worked, there are 85-95-95 stitches on needle.
Then work A.2 in the round – AT THE SAME TIME on first round decrease 3-7-1 stitches evenly = 82-88-94 stitches. When A.2 has been worked vertically, work next round as follows: Begin 2 stitches before beginning of the round, work A.3 (= 5 stitches - middle stitch in A.3 = mid back), work 32-35-38 stitches in stocking stitch, A.4 (= 13 stitches), 32-35-38 stitches in stocking stitch. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 10 cm from cast on edge (measured on the shortest), decrease 2 stitches mid back - read DECREASE TIP-1. Decrease like this on every 8th round 4-5-6 times in total, then on every 4th round 10-10-10 times in total = 54-58-62 stitches.
When piece measures 34-36-38 cm on the shortest (decreases mid back should now be done), work next round as follows: Knit 41-44-47, then slip the last 27-29-31 stitches worked (of these 41-44-47 stitches) on 1 stitch holder (= mid on top of foot), knit the remaining 13-14-15 stitches = 27-29-31 stitches on needle for heel.
Read KNITTING TIP and work in stocking stitch back and forth over heel stitches for 5-5½-6 cm. Insert 1 marker in the middle of this row - measure piece from this marker later.
Now work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above. After heel decrease work next round as follows: Work in stocking stitch over the 15-15-17 stitches from heel, pick up 13-14-16 stitches along the side on heel, work the 27-29-31 stitches from stitch holder (continue A.4 on the correct round from where you stopped before heel began) and pick up 13-14-16 stitches along the other side on heel = 68-72-80 stitches on needle.
Insert 1 marker on each side of the 27-29-31 stitches on top of foot. Work in stocking stitch in the round but continue A.4 mid on top of foot as far as possible until toe decrease (finish after a whole repetition vertically).
AT THE SAME TIME decrease on each side of the 27-29-31 stitches on top of foot 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. Decrease like this every other round 8-8-10 times in total in each side = 52-56-60 stitches. Continue to work until piece measures 17-19-21 cm from marker on heel (approx. 5-5-6 cm remain until finished measurements and A.4 should finish after a whole repetition vertically). Insert 1 marker thread in each side so that there are 26-28-30 stitches both on top of foot and under foot. Then decrease for toes on each side of both marker threads - READ DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this on every other round a total of 7-7-8 times and then on every round a total of 4-5-5 times = 8 stitches remain on needle in all sizes. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten.
Work the other stocking the same way.
Cut the silk ribbon in two equal parts. Begin mid back on one sock and thread the silk ribbon up and down through eyelet row (A.2) at the top of stocking. Tie a little bow mid back. Do the same on the other sock.
