In the instep & sole section, in Row 9 after the 3rd set of k2tog, there should not be a k4.
Note that the chart is correct.

This pattern was designed while I was studying for (and taking) an exam in the UK to obtain my permanent residency hence the silly name.

The pattern combines creation of elongated stitches and a mock cable and works equally well with hand-dyed, self-striping, or semi-solid yarns.

It is worked toe up and written to allow the knitter to choose what type of needles/method they want to use. The heel is a heel flap similar to one in a top-down sock, but requires no picking up of stitches!

You should be familiar with sock construction or be adventurous to use this pattern. A chart is included.
