Notes

striped standard knee-high stockings for skiing in extra thick yarn,
knit toe-up using magic loop
relying on this spreadsheet for sizing
(http://www.coats.de/PDF/reg_sockentabelle8bumerang.pdf)
but using number of stitches for one smaller size (44 sts) because he has slender feet and he wants them to fit tight
and the wonderful short-row heel with elizzza’s method
(http://www.nadelspiel.com/2009/06/28/luckenlose-bumerangf...)

rounded toe:
increase round: (k1, m1, knit to last stitch on needle, m1, k1) x2 = +4 sts
using a figure8-cast-on for 2x8 sts
R1,R2,R3: increase rounds (20,24,28 sts)
R4: knit all
R5: increase round (32 sts)
R6,R7: knit all
R8: increase round (36 sts)
R9,R10, R11: knit all
R 12: increase round (40 sts)
R13, R14, R15, R16: knit all
R17: increase round (44 sts)
Change color.
Always knit all sts in each first row of new color
Stripes are six rounds.
upper foot: k1, p2,k2 repeat to end, k1
sole: knit all
heel start after 9 1/2 6-row stripes (57 rounds)
knit short-row heel in same color as toe, with two complete rounds between second part of short rows. Finish with one more row in same color to complete stripe
leg pattern: continue k2-p2 rib on both needles
knit straight for 6 stripes (36 rounds)
increase two stitches every 3rd row for 6 stripes (36 rounds) by broadening central knit-rib from 2 to 4 k sts, next inserting two purl sts etc. In round 27 (after 8 increases=58sts) increase 4x in purl ribs from 2p to 3p ribs successively from inside out in every other round (70 sts)
knit straight for 5 stripes
decrease over next two stripes by reducing 3p ribs to 2p ribs from outside in in every other row (60 sts)
Cuff: with next color change (=toe and heel) change to smaller needle (3mm), install a k1p1-rib, and add elastic for tight fit. 12 rows. Finish with JSSBO.
