Stitch patterns Ribbing in the round: *p1, k1, p1, k1, p1*

Cast on 50 sts and divide them onto four needles: 10, 15, 15 and 10 sts. The beginning of round is between needles I and IV. Begin ribbing in the round: *p1, k1, p1, k1, p1*, repeat *-* 9 more times. Work ribbing for 3 cm.

Begin the textured pattern on row 1 of the chart. Repeat the 10 st pattern 5 times. Work rows 2ˆ’4 of the chart, then keep repeating rows 1ˆ’4.

When the leg measures approx. 15 cm and you have last worked row 2 or row 4 of the chart, redistribute the sts: 10, 14, 11 and 15 sts.

Begin heel flap: work the sts on needle I as they appear onto needle IV = 25 sts. Leave the other sts on hold. Turn work. Purl all sts and at the same time increase 1 = 26 sts.

Reinforced stitch pattern:

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

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

Work rows 1-2 a total of 13 times (= 26 rows).

Begin turning the heel. Continue the reinforced pattern as established. Work the RS row until 9 sts remain. Skp (= slip 1 knitwise, k1, pass slipped st over), turn work. Slip 1, p8, p2tog, turn work. Slip 1, work to last 8 sts, skp. Continue in this manner, decreasing at the ends with 10 sts in the middle. When only the middle sts remain, divide the sts onto two needles, 5 sts each. Knit the 5 right-hand sts. The beginning of round is now here.

Using a free needle pick up 13 sts from the left end of the heel flap + 1 st from between the flap and needle II. Knit the 5 heel flap sts and purl the picked-up sts through the back loop. On needles II and III, follow the textured pattern as established. Using the needle with 5 sts pick up 13 sts from the right end of the heel flap + 1 st from between needle III and the flap. Purl the picked-up sts through the back loop and knit the 5 flap sts.

63 sts on the needles. On needles I and IV (sole), work reverse stockinette st; on needles II and III (instep), follow the textured pattern. Begin gusset decreases: at the end of needle I, p2tog; at the beginning of needle IV, p2tog. Repeat the decreases every other round until 13 sts remain on needles I and IV.

Work as established until the sole measures 17 cm or until the sock covers the fifth toe.

Keep working the textured pattern in the instep and begin toe decreases: at the end of needles I and III, p2tog; at the beginning of needles II and IV, p2tog. Decrease as established on every other round until 6 sts remain on needles I and IV. Then repeat the decreases on every round until 9 sts remain. Break yarn, pull it through the sts and securely weave in.

Knit the other sock in the same manner.

Finishing

Steam the socks lightly.
