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

Cast on 50 sts and divide them onto four double-pointed needles: 12+13+12+13 sts. Work ribbing in the round for 2,5 cm.

Work ribbing and begin the lace pattern on row 1 of the chart: on needles I and II, work the 25 st lace pattern; on needles III and IV (25 sts), work ribbing as established. Work rows 2–20 of the chart, then keep repeating rows 1–20.

When the leg measures 13 cm, turn work, purl the sts on needles IV and III onto the same needle and at the same time decrease 1 st: purl together the last 2 sts of the round = 24 sts. Leave the other sts on hold.

Turn work and begin the reinforced stitch pattern for the heel flap:

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 12 times (= 24 rows).

Begin French heel turn:

Row 1: (RS) slip 1 with yarn in back, k13, skp (= slip 1 knitwise, k1, pass slipped st over), k1. Turn work.

Row 2: (WS) slip 1 with yarn in front, p5, p2tog, p1. Turn work.

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

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

Keep repeating rows 3–4 until there are 14 sts on the needles. Finish with a WS row. Knit the sts and divide them onto two needles, 7 sts each.

Using a free needle, pick up 12 sts from the left end of the heel flap + 1 st from between the flap and needle I. Knit the picked-up sts through the back loop onto needle IV which has 7 sts. On needles I and II, work the lace pattern. Using needle III (7 sts), pick up 12 sts from the right end of the flap + 1 st from between needle II and the flap. Knit the picked-up sts through the back loop and k7. The beginning of round is still at the side of the sock.

Work stockinette st in the sole and lace pattern in the instep and begin gusset decreases: at the beginning of needle III, skp; at the end of needle IV, k2tog. Repeat the decreases on every other round until 51 sts remain and then decrease once more at the beginning of needle III as established = 50 sts.

Work as established until the sole measures approx. 15 cm or until the sock covers the fifth toe. Finish with an odd-numbered row of the chart.

With all sts, work stockinette st and begin toe decreases: at the beginning of needle I, k1, skp; at the end of needle II, k2tog, k1; at the beginning of needle III, p1, skp; at the end of needle IV, k2tog, p1. Repeat the decreases on every other round until 22 sts remain. Redistribute the sts onto two needles, 11 sts each on instep and sole. Graft the sts together.

Knit the other sock in the same manner.

Finishing

Steam the socks lightly.
