Stitch patterns
- Stockinette stitch in the round: knit all rows.
- Colourwork in the round: work stockinette st following the chart.
- Twisted ribbing: *k1 through back loop, p1*

The sock is knitted from the toe up. Using Lupine chain 12 for a beginning chain. Using the hook pick up 12 sts from one edge of the chain onto a double-pointed needle and another 12 sts from the other edge onto another needle = 24 sts. Distribute the sts onto four double-pointed needles, 6 sts each. Work stockinette st in the round. The beginning of round is between needles I and IV, at the side of the sock.

Knit 1 round and begin increases. At the beginning of needles I and III and at the end of needles II and IV, increase 1 st inside the edge sts with a yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn overs through the back loop. Repeat the increases on every other round until there are 17 sts on each needle. Work 1 more increase round but work the increases on needles I and II only = 70 sts. Knit 1 round. Join Off White and knit 1 round.

Begin the colourwork pattern on row 1 of the chart. Repeat the 14 st pattern 5 times. Work rows 2-31 of the chart, then keep repeating rows 2-31.

When the sock measures 18 cm, begin the hourglass heel using Lupine. Make a note of where you are on the colourwork chart. Knit the sts on needles I and II. Turn work. Slip 1 purlwise and tighten the yarn in the back of the work so the loops of the slipped st from the previous row come over the needle = double stitch. Purl to end of needle IV, turn work, double stitch. Note: Slip 1 purlwise at the beginning of each row.

Keep working short rows, turning the work before the previous double stitch. When there are 14 regular sts in the middle and 11 double sts at both ends, begin long rows. Work the middle 14 sts and 1 double st (work the loops of the double st together to form one st). Turn work. *Slip 1. Work until you reach the double st at the other end. Work the loops of the double st together to form one st and turn work.* Repeat *-* until all sts have been worked.

Resume the colourwork pattern with all sts. If needed pick up additional sts from between the needles on both sides of the heel to prevent holes. Decrease the sts on the next round.

When you have repeated rows 2-31 a total of 3 times (with 3 whole rows of pansies at the leg), knit 1 round using Off White. Knit another round, evenly decreasing 6 sts = 64 sts. Redistribute the sts so that there are 16 sts on each needle.

Knit 1 round using Lupine, then work twisted ribbing for 8 rounds. Bind off.

Knit the other sock in the same manner.

Finishing

Lightly steam the socks.
