Stitch patterns Cable and rib pattern in the round: follow the chart and instructions. Stockinette stitch in the round: knit all rows.

Gauge 20 sts in stockinette st = 10 cm / 4 in; 21 sts in cable pattern

Cast on 63 sts and divide them onto four double-pointed needles. The beginning of round is between needles I and IV, at the side of the sock.

Begin the rib pattern on row 1 of the chart. Repeat the 9 st pattern 7 times. Keep repeating row 2 of the chart until the ribbing measures 4.5 cm.

Begin the cable pattern on row 3 of the chart. Repeat the 9 st pattern 7 times. Work rows 4–10, then repeat rows 3–10 five times (the leg now measures approx. 23 cm).

Work row 11 of the chart: work section A (= 9 sts), repeat section B 3 times (= 27 sts), work section C (= 9 sts), work section D 2 times (= 18 sts). Work rows 12–23 of the chart. 47 sts on the needles.

At the beginning of the next round, work 1 purl st onto needle IV. Knit the next 24 sts onto needle I for the heel flap. Leave the other sts on hold. With these sts, work stockinette st flat for 23 rows. Finish with the WS row.

Begin turning the heel: Work the RS row until 9 sts remain. Skp (= slip 1 knitwise, k1, pass the slipped st over), turn work. Slip 1, p6, p2tog, turn work. Slip 1, work to last 8 sts, skp. Continue in this manner, decreasing at the ends with 8 sts in the middle. Knit the 4 sts on the right. The beginning of round is now here.

Knit the 4 left-hand heel sts (needle I). Using a free needle, pick up 12 sts from the left end of the heel flap + 1 st from between the flap and needle II. Knit the picked-up sts through the back loop onto needle I. With the 23 sts on needles II and III, work row 24 of the chart. Using the needle with 4 sts, pick up 12 sts from the right end of the heel flap + 1 st from between the flap and needle III. Knit the picked-up sts through the back loop and knit the 4 heel sts onto needle IV. 57 sts on the needles.

On needles I and IV, work stockinette st; on needles II and III, work rows 25–31 of the chart. At the same time begin gusset decreases: At the end of needle I, k2tog; at the beginning of needle IV, skp. Repeat the decreases on every other round until 47 sts remain.

After row 31 of the chart, repeat rows 24–31 four more times (the sole measures approx. 21 cm).

Begin toe decreases: at the end of needle I, k2tog; on needles II and III, work row 32 of the chart; at the beginning of needle IV, skp. Repeat the decreases on needles I and IV on every other round once more and then 8 times on every row. On needles II and III, decrease following the chart. 8 sts on the needles. Break yarn, pull it through the sts and securely weave in.

Knit the other sock in the same manner.
