Garter sts (back and forth on needle): Knit all rows

Rib: *K1, P1*, repeat from *-*.

The bootee is knitted from top down and sewn together mid back afterwards.
Loosely cast on 14-16-16 (18-18) sts with 2 strands of light mint and needle size 4 mm / US 6 and knit garter sts until piece measures 3-3-3 (4-4) cm / 1 1/8''-1 1/8''-1 1/8'' (1½''-1½'') .
Put sts on a holder and knit a similar piece (= the upper part of bootee).
Put the 2 pieces in on the same needle and K 1 row over all sts = 28-32-32 (36-36) sts (the opening in the middle of piece = mid front).
Change to needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and work next row as follows from the right side, at the same time adjusting number of sts to 27-31-31 (35-35): 1 edge st in garter sts, *K1, P1*, repeat from *-* and finish with K1 and 1 edge st in garter sts.
Continue the Rib like this until it measures 3.5-4.4.5 (5-5) cm / 1 1/4"-1½"-1 3/4" (2"-2"). Now put the outermost 10-11-11 (12-12) sts each side on a holder.
Change back to needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work 4-5-6 (7-8) cm / 1½"-2"-2½" (2 3/4"-3") garter sts over the remaining 7-9-9 (11-11) sts mid front.
Then dec 1 st each side on every other row a total of 2 times = 3-5-5 (7-7) sts left, cut the yarn.
Pick up 10-11-13 (15-17) sts on each side of the middle piece and put sts from holder back on needle = 43-49-53 (61-65) sts.
Work 3-3.5-4 (4.5-5) cm / 1"-1 1/4"-1½" (1 3/4"-2") garter sts over all sts, at the same time after 1.5-2-2.5 (3-3.5) cm / ½"-3/4"-7/8" (1 1/8"-1 1/4") dec as follows on every other row until finished measurements: bind off 1 st at the beginning and at the end of row and K2 tog on both sides of the middle st = approx 31-37-41 (49-53) sts left.
Bind off loosely. Make another bootee.
Sew seam under foot and mid back – sew in the outer loops of sts in order to make the seam neat.

Crochet border:
Start mid back and crochet a border with 2 strands camel and crochet hook size 4mm/US 6 as follows:
1 sc in 1st st, *3 ch, 1 dc in the 1st of the 3 ch (= 1 picot), skip 1-1.5 cm / 3/8''-½'', 1 sc in next st*, repeat from *-* along the whole opening, but crochet as follows mid front (do not crochet picots): 1 sc, ch 3, skip 1-1.5 cm / 3/8''-½'', 1 sc in next st, etc.
Finish the round with 1 sl st in 1st sc from beginning of round.

Flower: Ch 3 with 2 strands heather and crochet hook size 4mm/US 6 and form a ring with a sl st in 1st ch.
1st round: 5 sc in ring and finish with 1 sl st in sc from beginning of round
2nd round: *4 ch, 1 dc in the 1st ch just crochet, 1 sc in next st*, repeat from *-* = 5 leaves. Cut the yarn.
Now ch 3 with 2 strands camel and form a ring with a sl st in first ch.
1st round: 5 sc in ring and finish with 1 sl st in sc from beginning of round
2nd round: *4 ch, 3 dc in the 1st ch just crochet, 1 sc in next st*, repeat from *-* = 5 leaves. Cut the yarn.
Place the heather flower on top of the camel flower and sew the whole flower to the middle piece of bootee.

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas dans le modèle des chaussons BabyDROPS 14-11, comment des 28-32-32(36-36)m, on peut arriver à 43-49-53(61-65)m puisqu'il n'y a pas d'augmentation ?? merci par avance de votre réponse. cordialement Armelle Phinéra

Bonjour Mme Phinera, quand on a 27-32-32 (35-35) m, on tricote en côtes puis on tricote 4-8 cm (cf taille) point mousse sur les 7-11 m du milieu, on relève ensuite les mailles de chaque côté de cette partie au point mousse + les mailles en attente. Bon tricot!

Hej Marie. Du använder den tråd du redan stickar med. Du stickar upp 11 m i kanten av mittstycket. Du måste ta hjälp i butiken du köpte garnet, det är lättare när man har stickningen fram för sig. Lycka till!

Marie 05.10.2008 - 22:34:

Helt ny på att sticka och förstår inte från "Nu stickas det upp med 11 m på varje sida om mittstycket". Hur då? Vilken tråd använder jag, och jag måste klippa av för att kunna lägga upp på båda sidor? Lägger jag upp 11 nya m på en sticka och sen för över dem jag har sparat? Sorry för alla frågor...

Malin 26.02.2008 - 00:27:

Aha! Tack så mycket. Jag hade inte förstått att det var maskorna jag just hade stickat som skulle "sättas av" utan att det var nästa del som det menades eftersom det var ett kommatecken innan. Tack så mycket för snabb förklaring :)

Hela toffeln stickas med dubbelt garn. När man sätter av maskor på en tråd, så används en bit restgarn (eller en strumpsticka eller en säkerhetsnål). Detta då dessa maskor inte ska stickas just där och då.

Malin 04.02.2008 - 21:46:

Hej, jag märkte att det tyvärr är lite otydligt hur många trådar man ska använda. Efter att den första delen är stickad står det "sätt m på 1 tråd och sticka en motsvarande del (= överst på toffeln). Sätt de 2 delarna på samma st och sticka 1 räta v över alla m" Dvs, ska man göra "flik nr2" med enbart enkel tråd eller med dubbel tråd som den första? Vad menas med "sätt m på en tråd"? Ska resten av sockan stickas med enkel eller dubbel tråd?
