EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------
HEEL DECREASE: 
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit until there are 5-5-5-5 stitches left, slip 1 stitch, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Purl until there are 5-5-5-5 stitches left, slip 1 stitch, purl 1 and pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit until there are 4-4-4-4 stitches left, slip 1 stitch, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Purl until there are 4-4-4-4 stitches left, slip 1 stitch, purl 1 and pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
Continue to decrease in this way, by working until there is 1 less stitch before slipping a stitch and until there are 10-10-10-10 stitches left.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SOCK - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The whole piece is worked with 2 strands. It is worked in the round with double pointed needles as far as the heel. Then the heel is worked back and forth before finishing the piece in the round.

SOCK:
Cast on 40-40-44-44 stitches with double pointed needles size 4 mm and 1 strand off-white and 1 strand blue sea (= 2 strands). Knit 2 rounds, then work rib with knit 2/ purl 2 until the piece measures 8-8-9-9 cm. Now keep the first 18-18-18-18 stitches on the needles for the heel (the first 2 and last 2 of these stitches are knitted), place the next 22-22-26-26 stitches on 1 thread (= mid top of foot). Work stocking stitch back and forth over the heel stitches for 5-5-5-5 cm. Insert 1 marker – the piece is now measured from here! Then decrease for heel - READ HEEL DECREASE! After the heel decrease knit up 10-10-10-10 stitches on each side of the heel and the 22-22-26-26 stitches from the thread are put back on the needles = 52-52-56-56 stitches. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 22-22-26-26 stitches on top of foot. Then continue with rib over the stitches on top of foot and the remaining stitches are worked in stocking stitch - AT THE SAME TIME decrease on each side as follows: Knit twisted together the last 2 stitches before the stitches on top of foot (i.e. work in the back of both stitches instead of the front) and knit together the first 2 stitches after the stitches on top of foot. Decrease like this every 2nd round 10-9-10-8 times = 32-34-36-40 stitches. Continue with rib over the 22-22-26-26 stitches on top of foot and stocking stitch over the 10-12-10-14 stitches under the foot until the piece measures 14-16-18-20 cm from the heel marker (= 4-4-4-4 cm left). 
Now insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 16-17-18-20 stitches both on top and underneath the foot. Finish with stocking stitch – AT THE SAME TIME decrease for the toe on each side of both markers. 
Decrease as follows, when there are 3 stitches left before the marker: 
Knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), knit 2 twisted together. Decrease on each side every 2nd round a total of 3-3-3-3 times and then every round 3-3-3-4 times = 8-10-12-12 stitches left on needles. On the next round knit all stitches together 2 and 2. Cut the strand and pull it through the remaining stitches, pull tight and fasten well.

Work the other sock in the same way.
