Socks: Knit piece in the round on double pointed needles from mid back. Cast on 104-112-120 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Fabel. Knit 2 rounds stocking sts. Continue in Rib as follows: K1, * P5, K3 *, repeat from *-* and finish with 5 purl sts and 2 knit sts. Continue like this until piece measures 4-5-6 cm. Now dec 1 sts on every other row P part. Continue with K over K and P over P until piece measures 9-10-11 cm. Now dec 1 sts in remaining P parts = 91-98-105 sts. Continuing, K 3 and P4 until piece measures 14-15-16 cm. Now dec 1 sts on every other row P part. Continue with K over K and P over P until piece measures 19-20-21 cm. Now dec 1 sts in remaining P parts = 78-84-90 sts. Continuing, K3 and P3 until piece measures 24-25-26 cm. Insert marking thread or stitch holder on each side of 3 knitted sts mid back. Continue with stocking sts until piece is completed. Remember knitting tension! At the same time as dec 1 sts on each side of 3 sts mid back every 2 cm 11-12-13 times in total = 56-60-64 sts. When piece measures 46-49-51 cm keep first 12-13-14 sts on needle, slip next 32-34-36 sts on 1 thread (= mid foot top) and keep last 12-13-14 sts on needle = 24-26-28 sts for heel. Knit stocking sts back and forth over heel sts for 5-5.5-6 cm. Now dec for heel – see Heel decrease.

Insert 1 marking thread or stitch holder on each side so 26-28-31 sts are left on top of the foot and 26-28-31 sts underneath the foot. Continue in stocking sts on all sts at the same time dec for toe on both sides of marking thread or stitch marker.

Cut yarn and pull it through remaining sts, pull tog and sew away ends.

Bonjour, pourriez-vous m'expliquer l'endroit où commence les diminutions: Diminuer 1 m dans 1 section 5 m env sur 2... Combien de mailles seront diminuées sur ce rg. Merci

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 08:38:

Bonjour Mme Briand, tricotez d'abord un rang ainsi quand votre ouvrage mesure 4-5-6 cm (cf taille): 1 m end, *2 m ens à l'env, 3 m end, 5 m env, 3 m end*, répétez de *-* et terminez par 2 m end = vous avez diminué 1 m env dans 1 section 5 m env sur 2. Continuez en côtes ainsi (avec alternativement 4 m env et 5 m env). Puis à 9-10-11 cm, diminuez ainsi: 2 m end, *4 m env, 3 m end, 2 m ens à l'env, 3 m env, 3 m end* = 91-98-105 m. Vous avez maintenant des côtes 3 m end/ 4 m env. Continuez ainsi jusqu'à 14-15-16 cm de hauteur totale et diminuez de la même façon dans les mailles envers comme indiqué. Bon tricot!

I am finding it extremely difficult to understand this pattern after the 26 cm measurement just prior to starting the stockinette sts. What do you mean by inserting stitch marker on each side of 3 knitted stitches. Which 3 knitted stitches? What type of heel is this? Maybe I can try looking it up as i really dont understand the instructions. Do you have a simplified version or something that is easier to understand. Thanks

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 11:48:

Dear Mrs Chow, when piece measures 26 cm and you continue working piece in stockinette, you don't start heel but continue leg dec mid back 1 st on each side of the middle 3 sts. Heel will start when piece measures 51 cm in larger size. Happy knitting!

Det er en rigtig god opskrift. Jeg er nu ved at strikke mit 3. par.

Katrine 23.03.2012 - 23:46:

Har strukket 3 par av disse, og bare elsker dem!!!! Bare en veldig irriterende ting... Har strikket den mellomste størrelsen, og det har hver gang blitt litt for lite garn. Akkurat ikke nok til siste tåfelling. Og jeg har fulgt målene til punkt og prikke, det ene paret er faktisk litt kortere enn de skal være!

Lisbeth Severinsen 26.09.2010 - 14:59:

Hei, denne oppskriften er god ;) Jeg har strikket flere strømper, pleier å finne et tynt labbegarn og strikker inn striper i alpakka, da blir de kjempevarme. Mvh Lisbeth

Hoi Nelleke. Ik weet dat er nu heel korte rondbreinaalden van 20-25 cm verkrijgbaar zijn. Helaas nog niet van DROPS - maar deze zijn perfect voor het breien van sokken. Kijk op het winkeloverzicht - een paar van deze winkels hebben ze vast wel! Succes.

Nelleke 12.12.2007 - 12:58:

Dag, kan je sokken ook op rondbreinaalden breien? ik vind het zo'n gepriegel met al die naalden en ze vallen ook steeds. Of doe ik iets helemaal verkeerd? vriendelijke groet Nelleke Wolters

Cecilie 29.08.2007 - 12:49:

Flotte sokker! elsker fargene og mønsteret! Disse må jeg prøve!:-)

Helle-V 22.08.2007 - 21:54:

Rigtig rigtig flotte. Helt vidunderlige. Dem skal jeg strikke.
