SOCKS - QUICK SUMMARY OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, top down.

SOCK:  
Cast on 72 stitches in all sizes with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 and black. Knit 1 round. Now work 5 rounds of rib (knit 1 /purl 1). Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5. Work pattern A.1 (= 8 stitches) a total of 9 times on the round. On the last round in A.1 decrease 2 stitches evenly spaced = 70 stitches. Then work A.2 (= 10 stitches) a total of 7 times on the round. On the last round increase 2 stitches evenly spaced = 72 stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Now work A.3 (= 12 stitches) a total of 6 times on the round. On the last round decrease 4-0-0 stitches evenly spaced = 68-72-72 stitches. Now work pattern as follows: A.4 (= 7 stitches), A.5 (= 23 stitches), A.4 (= 7 stitches) and A.6 (= 31-35-35 stitches) - decrease as shown in diagram A.6 = 64-68-68 stitches on the round. When A.6 has been worked 1 time in height, place the first 37 stitches on 1 thread (= stitches over A.4 + A.5 + A.4) = 27-31-31 stitches left on needle for heel. Continue with A.7 (choose diagram for your size) over the heel stitches for 5-5½-6 cm / 2''-2 1/4''-2½''. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the row. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Now work HEEL DECREASE – read description above. After heel decrease knit up 10-12-14 stitches on each side of the heel – make sure to knit up stitches with every other color as in A.7 and make sure that first and last stitch is worked with ocean view. Place the 37 stitches from the thread are placed back on the needles = 72-76-80 stitches.
The 37 stitches on top of foot are worked in pattern as before (A.4 – A.5 – A.4), the other stitches are worked in A.7 (= under the foot) - AT THE SAME TIME decrease on each side of the 37 stitches on top of foot as follows: The 2 stitches before the 37 stitches (top of foot) knit 2 together through back loop (twisted) and the first 2 stitches after the 37 stitches (top of foot) knit 2 together. Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 7 times = 58-62-66 stitches. The last stitch before A.7 should be a black stitch. Continue the pattern until the piece measures 18-19-22 cm / 7"-7 3/8"-8 5/8" from the heel marker (= approx. 4-5-5 cm / 1 ½"-1 7/8"-1 7/8" left). Then work as follows: Work A.4 as before over the stitches in each side and A.7 over the 23 stitches on top of foot and the 21-25-29 stitches under the foot - AT THE SAME TIME decrease to toe on each side of A.4 in each side as follows: Work until there are 2 stitches left before A.4, knit 2 together, work A.4, then knit 2 stitches twisted together. Decrease in the same way by the other repeat of A.4 (= 4 stitches decreased on the round). Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 4-7-7 times and then every round a total of 5-3-3 times = 22-22-26 stitches left. On the next round knit all stitches together 2 and 2, with black = 11-11-13 stitches. Cut the strand and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. Work the other sock in the same way.
