These are Roza's Socks, designed by Grumperina from the Interweave Knits Spring 2007 magazine.
Needles: Size 1 bamboo dpns
Yarn: Steinbach Wolle Aktiv Color 100 #7639
I added 6 sts (66 sts total) since I have size 8.5 feet.
Top cuff: 1 3/4" = 20 rounds
Whole cuff: 8" = 80 rounds
74 rounds from gusset to beg of toe shaping:
Round 74 on 4th needle knit first 2 sts together.
Arrange 31 sts on heel needles. 33 sts on instep needles.
Set up round: decrease 1 sts on each instep needle (#2 & #3).
Round 1: decrease on each needle (as per pattern).
Round 2: knit even
Decrease until 11 sts on heel (#4 & #1) and instep needles (#2 & #3). No even knitting round after this....do another decrease round to get 9 sts on heel and instep needles.
Do donkey ear trick.
I had quite a bit of yarn left over. No worries about running out even though the cuff was fairly long.
I love how the brioche stitch looks in the ribbing.
