Stitch patterns Twisted ribbing in the round: *k1 through back loop, p1*

Cast on 48 sts and divide them onto four double-pointed needles: 13+12+11+12 sts. Begin twisted ribbing in the round: *k1 through back loop, p1*, repeat *–*.

Work ribbing for 12 rounds. Next round: on needles I, II and III, work twisted ribbing; on needle IV, knit all sts.

Begin heel flap: knit the sts on needle I onto needle IV = 25 sts. Leave the other sts on hold.

Turn work. Slip 1 purlwise and purl to end, decreasing 1 st = 24 sts. Turn work. Reinforced stitch pattern:

Row 1: (RS) *slip 1 purlwise, k1*, repeat *–* to end of row. Turn work.

Row 2: (WS) slip 1 purlwise, purl to end. Turn work.

Keep repeating rows 1–2 until the heel flap has 24 rows and you have last worked a WS row.

Begin turning the heel: Continue working the reinforced stitch pattern as established. RS: work until 9 heel flap sts remain. Ssk (slip 2 sts knitwise one at a time from left-hand needle to right-hand needle, move the sts back to the left-hand needle and knit them together through the back loop), turn work. 7 sts remain on the other needle. Slip 1 purlwise, purl to last 9 sts. P2tog, turn work. Slip 1 knitwise, work reinforced st pattern to last 8 sts. Ssk, turn work. Slip 1 purlwise, purl to last 8 sts. P2tog, turn work.

Continue in this manner, decreasing at the ends with 8 sts in the centre. When only the centre sts remain, divide the sts onto two needles, 4 sts each. K4. You are now between needles I and IV.

Using a free needle, pick up 14 sts from the left end of the heel flap. Knit the 4 sts on needle I and knit the 14 picked-up sts through the back loop. On needles II and III, k3, work 17 st lace pattern on row 1 of chart, k3. Pick up 14 sts from the right end of the heel flap and knit them through the back loop. Knit the 4 sts of needle IV onto the same needle. 59 sts on the needles.

On needles I and IV work stockinette st and on needles II and III work rows 2–30 of the chart; at the same time begin gusset decreases : at the end of needle I, k2tog; at the beginning of needle IV, ssk. Repeat the decreases on every other round until 47 sts remain (12+12+11+12 sts).

After row 30 of the lace chart, work stockinette st with all sts.

When the sole measures approx. 21 cm or the sock covers the fifth toe, begin toe decreases: on needles I and III, work to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1. On needles II and IV, k1, ssk, knit to end of needle.

Repeat the decreases on every other round until 31 sts remain (8+8+7+8 sts). Now work the decreases on every round until 8 sts remain (on the last round, omit the decrease on needle III).

Break the yarn and pull it through the sts. Weave in the ends.

Knit the other sock in the same manner.

Finishing

Lightly steam the socks.
