Make 10 chain sts, 1 chain st, make all row with single crochets. Crochet with straight-turning crocheting. Starting from the 2nd row, make single crochets through back half-loops and make 1 chain st in the beginning of each row. You should get elastic rib with ribby surface. Fold in half and connect the 1st and last rows with slip st. You should get tube, through which your child's heel can go. The length of this pattern is 20,5 cm and width - 3,5 cm. Turn to the wrong side and start making the base of your sock. Cast on sts around the rib. You should get 36 sts. Then, make 9 rows of single crochets around. The height of sock with rib is 6,5 cm.
Divide your work into 2 parts, mark 18 sts for both parts. Leave one part uncrocheted. Divide another part into 3, you should get 6 sts. These sts should be left in the end of all the decreases. Crochet with straight-turning rows one part of sock (18 sts). Don't make increase sts in the beginning of each row and start with the 2nd single crochet, don't crochet the last st. So, you decrease the quantity of sts. Continue working until there are 6 sts left. Now, you need to make your heel round, increasing sts. To make this, crochet in the 2nd sts in the beginnig of each row and make 2 more side sts in the end. After making all side sts, you should get 18 sts, as on the side, that isn't crocheted yet.

3rd row: 14 sts;
4th row: 12 sts;
5th row: 10 sts;

9th row: 10 + 2 = 12 sts;
10th row: 12 + 2 = 14 sts;
11th row = 14 + 2 = 16 sts;
