Ankle Gussets

Pick up the 18 slipped stitches at the sides of the heel flap onto the regular sized needles, put the saved stitches on another needle. Knit 1 round to the center back marker. As you go, place a marker between slipped stitches you picked up and the top-of-foot stitches which you just retrieved from the holder or yarn scrap. Count all your stitches, you should have 126 stitches on your needles. Knit 36 rounds. On alternate rounds, decrease on the ankle side of the side markers only – do not make paired decreases. You should now have 96 stitches on the needles. Remove the side markers. Congratulate yourself – you are almost home free!
The Foot

Knit straight for -4 rows, or until the foot of the sock measures 5 inches long.
Place markers at the sides of the sock – 24 stitches to either side of the heel marker. Remove the heel marker. Make paired decreases at the markers on alternate rounds for 44 rounds.

Graft the remaining stitches together to seam the toe. Darn the yarn-end into the sock.

Repeat from the top for the second sock!
