*All sizes: All sts from each side of heel have now been worked. Knit sts on needles 1 and 2.
Pick up and knit 6 (7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13) sts on right side of heel flap (= needle 2), work in stockinette across needles 3 and 4; pick up and knit 6 (7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13) sts on left side of heel flap and knit remaining sts of heel (= needle 1). Knit 1 rnd over all sts. On the next rnd, decrease on needles 1 and 2 as follows (the decreases are worked on picked-up sts).
Needle 2: K2tog with last 2 sts on needle.
Needle 1: K2tog tbl with first 2 sts on needle.
Decrease the same way on every other rnd until 28 (28, 32, 32, 32, 32, 40, 40, 44) sts total remain. Divide sts evenly onto 4 dpn.
Knit around in stockinette until foot measures (from back of heel): 4 (4¾, 5½, 6¼, 7, 7½, 8, 8¾) in / 10 (12, 14, 16, 18, 19, 20.5, 22) cm.

Divide the sts over 2 needles; turn work so WS faces out.
Bind off as follows: Hold the needles parallel in your left hand with RS facing RS. K2tog using the first st on each needle; *k2tog with next st on each needle, pass the first st on right needle over the second = 1 st bound off*. Repeat from * to * until all sts have been bound off. Cut yarn and draw through remaining st.
Cut yarn and draw end through remaining sts; tighten.
Weave in all ends neatly on WS.
Yarn alternative: Please be aware that the gauge (tension), yarn quantity and the shape of the work varies if you use another yarn (even in the same yarn group).
To avoid problems: Read entirely through the pattern before you begin.
Gauge (tension): Always knit/crochet a gauge swatch according to the recommendations. If you get a different gauge, try with a smaller or larger needle size. If the gauge isn't correct the work may be a different shape and size.
To make it easier to follow the instructions, use a colored pencil or highlighter to mark your size.
Chart: To make it easier to follow the chart, use a ruler under the on-going row.
Tips för hand dyed yarn: Make sure you have enough yarn to complete your project. The colors may vary from time to time. To get a smooth color mix, you can alternate between two skeins: knit two rows from one and two rows from another skein.

The range of movement for the garments in our patterns varies depending on the garment type, shape and design. In order to find the right size, we recommend that you first measure all measurements directly on the body, according to the tables below. Then you decide the size of the garment yourself, based on how much movement you want the garment to have.
Chest (a), waist (b) and hips (c) are measured around the body.
Children's clothing is measured in centilong (cl),which is the same as the childs length.
Premature = Children born before the week of pregnancy 38.
