EXPLANATION FOR PATTERN:

----------------------------------------------------------

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Work the entire pattern in stocking stitch. 

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 72 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 6) = 12.
In this example decrease by knitting every 11th and 12th stitch together.

KNITTING TIP-1:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Use a larger needle size when working pattern if needed.

KNITTING TIP-2 (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 14-14-16 stitches on needle.

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

SOCKS - SHORT SUMMARY OF PIECE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles, top down.

SOCK:
Cast on 72-75-81 stitches on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with light grey. Knit 1 round. Then work 1 round rib = knit 1/purl 2. Switch to light pearl grey and continue rib until piece measures 3 cm in all sizes.
Knit 1 round while decreasing 0-3-1 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP-1 = 72-72-80 stitches.
Read KNITTING TIP-1 and work A.1 in the round (= 9-9-10 repetitions of 8 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME on row marked with arrow in A.1 decrease 6-6-8 stitches evenly on round = 66-66-72 stitches. When A.1 has been worked, piece measures approx. 12 cm in all sizes.
Then work A.2 in the round (= 11-11-12 repetitions of 6 stitches). AT THE SAME TIME on row marked with arrow in A.2 decrease 6-6-6 stitches evenly on round = 60-60-66 stitches. Work A.2 (there is now room for 10-10-11 repetitions of 6 stitches).
When A.2 has been worked, piece measures approx. 25 cm in all sizes. Then work in stocking stitch with grey until finished measurements. AT THE SAME TIME on first round after A.2 decrease 6-2-4 stitches evenly = 54-58-62 stitches.
When piece measures 26 cm in all sizes, keep the first 13-14-15 stitches on needles for heel, slip the next 28-30-32 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= mid on top of foot) and keep the remaining 13-14-15 stitches on needles for heel = 26-28-30 heel stitches.
Read KNITTING TIP-2 and work in stocking stitch back and forth over heel stitches for 5-5½-6 cm. 
Insert a marker in the middle of last row, marker should be used later to measure the length of foot.
Now work HEEL DECREASE - read explanation above. After heel decrease work next round as follows: Knit over the 14-14-16 stitches from heel, pick up 13-14-16 stitches along side of heel, knit the 28-30-32 stitches from stitch holder and pick up 13-14-16 stitches along the other side of heel = 68-72-80 stitches on needles.
Insert 1 marker on each side of the 28-30-32 stitches on top of foot.
Work in stocking stitch in the round and decrease on each side of the 28-30-32 stitches on top of foot as follows: Knit the last 2 stitches before first marker on top of foot twisted together and knit the 2 stitches after last marker on top of foot together (= 2 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every other round 8-8-10 times in total = 52-56-60 stitches.
Then continue until piece measures approx. 18-19-21 cm from marker on heel (approx. 4-5-6 cm remain until finished measurements, try the sock on and work to desired length). Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 26-28-30 stitches both on top of foot and under foot. On next round decrease for toes on both each side of both markers – read DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this on every other round a total of 4-7-9 times and then on every round a total of 5-3-2 times = 16 stitches remain on needle in all sizes. On next round knit all stitches together 2 by 2 = 8 stitches remain in all sizes. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. 
Work the other sock the same way.
