Continue decrease like this with 1 stitch less before each decrease until there are 10-10-10 stitches.
----------------------------------------------------------

SOCKS: 
Piece is worked in the round on double pointed needles, work sock in stripes and with 2 strands. Cast on 44-44-48 stitches on double pointed needles size 4 mm with 2 strands off white. Work STRIPES - see explanation above. Knit 1 round, then work rib (knit 2/purl 2). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue with rib until stripes have been worked, piece measures approx. 16 cm.
Now keep the first 18-18-22 stitches on needle for heel (the first 2 and last 2 stitches of this are knit stitches) and slip the last 26-26-26 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= mid on top of foot). Switch to 2 strands off white and work in stocking stitch back and forth over heel stitches for 5-5½-6 cm - AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row decrease 0-0-2 stitches evenly = 18-18-20 stitches. Insert 1 marker - now measure piece from here! Then decrease for heel - read HEEL DECREASE!

After heel decrease pick up 10-10-11 stitches on each side of heel
NOTE! Make sure to pick up stitch around a whole stitch (both stitch loops) with 1 strand mustard and 1 strand off white and slip the 26-26-26 stitches from stitch holder back on needle = 56-56-58 stitches. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 26-26-26 stitches on top of foot. Then continue rib over stitches on top of foot, work the other stitches in stocking stitch - AT THE SAME TIME decrease in each side as follows: Knit the last 2 stitches before stitches on top of foot twisted together (i.e. in back loop of stitch instead of front), knit the first 2 stitches after stitches on top of foot together. Decrease like this every other round 10-8-7 times = 36-40-44 stitches. Work rib over 26-26-26 stitches on top of foot and in stocking stitch over 10-14-18 stitches under foot until piece measures 18-20-22 cm from marker on heel (= 4-4-5 cm remain).
Now insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 18-20-22 stitches both on top of foot and under foot.
Continue working stocking stitch and with 2 strands off white - AT THE SAME TIME decrease for toes on each side of both markers. 
Decrease as follows when 3 stitches remain before marker: 
Knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker is between these), knit 2 twisted together. Decrease in each side on every other round a total of 3-3-4 times and then on every round a total of 3-4-4 times = 12-12-12 stitches remain on needle. On next round work all stitches together 2 by 2. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten.
Knit another sock the same way.
