Now you have decreased the two purl sts away, continue decreases by purling two together at the lace pattern side of those knit sts in the edge of second and third needle, so that the pattern decreases neatly. In the sole side continue decreasing as before.




When there´s only 16 sts left, put the upper sts to one needle and sole sts to another. Turn the sock inside out and use the three needle casting off to rest of sts.
