- Stockinette stitch in the round: knit all rows.

Gauge
25 sts in stockinette st with 2½-3 mm needles = 10 cm / 4 in

Note:
If you don't wish to make a provisional cast-on, cast on 54 sts, work 5 rounds in stockinette st and then make the fold round. Then work stockinette st down to the heel. Sew the cast-on edge to the inside of the sock.

Leg

Provisional cast-on: chain 66 using the scrap yarn. Break yarn and pull it through the last st. Using the smaller needles and beginning at the 6th st in the chain, pick up 1 st per ch and knit it using the Spring yarn until there are 54 sts on the needles. Divide the sts onto four needles. Now work stockinette stitch in the round for 5 rounds.

Fold round: on the next round *k2tog, yarn over, k1*, repeat *-* to end of round. Work 5 rounds in stockinette st. Switch to the larger needles.

Unravel the crochet chain and place the released sts onto the smaller needles. Make sure you pick up each released st = 54 sts. Fold the piece once so that the cast-on edge is on the inside and the larger needles are on the outside.

Knit the sts on the smaller and larger needles together: knit the 1st sts of both needles together using the larger needle. Work the 2nd pair of sts in the same manner. Continue until all pairs of sts have been knitted together. 54 sts on the needles.

Work stockinette st with all needles, evenly increasing 2 sts on the first round = 56 sts, 14 sts per needle.

Work stockinette st until the leg measures 10 cm from the fold round.

Begin heel flap: knit the sts on needle I onto needle IV = 28 sts. Leave the other sts on hold and turn work. Slip 1, p27, turn work.

Reinforced stitch pattern:

Row 1: (RS) *slip 1 with yarn in back, k1*, repeat *-* to end. Turn work.

Row 2: (WS) slip 1 with yarn in back, purl to end. Turn work.

Work rows 1-2 a total of 14 times (= 28 rows).

Begin French heel turn:

Row 1 (RS): slip 1, k15, skp (= slip 1 knitwise, k1, pass slipped st over), k1. Turn work.

Row 2 (WS): slip 1, p5, p2tog, p1. Turn work.

Row 3: slip 1, knit to last st before gap, skp, k1. Turn work.

Row 4: slip 1, purl to last st before gap, p2tog, p1. Turn work.

Continue in this manner until all sts have been worked. Redistribute the remaining sts onto two needles.

Using a free needle pick up 14 sts from the left end of the heel flap + 1 st from between the flap and needle II. Using the left-hand sole needle knit the heel flap sts and knit the picked-up sts through the back loop. On needles II and III work stockinette st as established. Using the right-hand sole needle pick up 14 sts from the right end + 1 st from between needle III and the heel flap. Knit the picked-up sts through the back loop and knit the heel flap sts.

Work stockinette st in the round and begin gusset decreases: at the end of needle I, k2tog; at the beginning of needle IV, skp. Repeat the decreases every other round until 14 sts remain on needles I and IV = 56 sts.

Work stockinette st until the foot measures approx. 19 cm or until the sock covers the fifth toe.

Begin toe decreases: at the end of needles I and III, k2tog, k1; at the beginning of needles II and IV, k1, skp. Repeat the decreases on every other round 7 more times. 6 sts on each needle. Redistribute the sts onto two needles, 12 sts each on instep and sole. Graft the sts together.

Knit the other sock in the same manner.

Finishing

Securely weave in all ends.

Lightly steam the socks.
