In Stylecraft Special I only need to to do 11 rows of dc [tr]to fit my foot
A difference from the original pattern. 
Because you change colour every row, alternate the joining from side to side so the extra thickness of woven in ends is spread around the sock and not in one area only.

for the Knitters 
Pick up the 30 sts with a knitting needle and rib for approx. one inch/2.5cm

Lengthen the sock foot or top by adding a few more rounds if you require

You can add more rounds if you want longer socks, but if you have bigger calves you could find you need to add a few stitches to make for a comfortable fit

mark the 2 corners of heel.
2tog sts...one each side of the marker.
