Knit 1 round and purl 1 round, at the same time inc 6 sts evenly = 82-90-98 sts. Knit next round as follows: M.1, P 17-21-22 sts, M.1, M.2, M.3 and P 17-21-22 sts. Continue in pattern like this until piece measures 10 cm. Now insert a MT at beg of round and continue in pattern, at the same time dec 1 st on both sides of the cable mid back – see Decreasing tip – on every cm a total of 6-7-8 times = 70-76-82 sts. When piece measures 24-25-26 cm dec 10 sts evenly on round (do not dec over M.2) as follows: Dec 3 sts in each cable by knitting sts tog 2 by 2, at the same time dec 1 st by P 2 tog on the remaining sts (to make pattern fit) = 60-66-72 sts. Now keep the first 15-18-18 sts on needle, put the next 30-30-36 sts on a thread or a stitch holder (= mid upper foot) and keep the last 15-18-18 sts on needle = 30-36-36 sts for heel (insert a marking thread after 15-18-18 sts). Knit 5-5.5-6 cm stocking sts on heel sts and then dec for heel – see decreasing for heel above. After the heel dec pick up 15-16-18 sts on each side of the heel and the put the 30-30-35 sts from the thread or stitch holder back on double pointed needles = 74-78-88 sts.

Dec on every other row a total of 9-8-10 times = 56-62-68 sts. Continue in pattern until piece measures 18-19-21 cm from MT on heel. Now insert a marking thread each side (28-31-34 sts between each MT). Continue in stocking sts on all sts and dec for toe on both sides of each marking thread as follows: K2 tog, MT, K2 twisted tog. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 4-8-10 times and on every round a total of 7-4-2 times = 12-14-20 sts left. On next round knit all sts tog 2 by 2. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts. Sew tight.

Dobrý den, můžete mi, prosím, poradit s postupem? Mám nyní 66 ok a rozděluji oči pro tvarování paty (na lícový žerzej). Lícový žerzej se plete z 36 očí. Příze je ale ukončena uprostřed :( Kde se stala chyba? Děkuji moc za radu. Radka Brejchová

Dobrý den, Radko, nezoufejte! Ano, příze skutečně zůstane uprostřed, 1. řada paty (tj. poté, co jste odložila oka pro nárt a zůstalo vám těch 36 ok pro patu) tedy bude poloviční - upletete hladce 18 ok do konce řady, práci otočíte a upletete obrace plnou rubovou řadu = 36 ok. Dál pokračujete lícovým žerzejem do výše 5,5 nebo 6 cm. Hodně zdaru! Hana

Det är flera fel i mönsterdiagrammet. Dels så är det 18 varvs höjd på både M1 och M3 och sedan så har den största storleken angetts felaktigt på mönsterdiagrammet.

Todella kauniit sukat.Suomenkielistä ohjetta kaipaan munäkin.

Sirpa 22.02.2007 - 09:26:

Hienot sukat, tulostin englantilaisen ohjeen. Suomenkielistä ohjetta kaipaisin ja varmaan moni muukin
