Rib: * K2, P3 *, repeat *-*.

Pattern: See diagram M.1, M.2 and M.3. Diagrams are seen from RS.

Heel decrease:
1st row (= RS): Knit until 7-8-9 sts remains on needle, slip following st as if to K, K1, psso.
2nd row (= WS): Purl until 7-8-9 sts remains on needle, slip following st as if to P, P1, psso.
3rd row (= RS): Knit until 6-7-8 sts remains on needle, slip following st as if to K, K1, psso.
4th row (= WS): Purl until 6-7-8 sts remains on needle, slip following st as if to P, P1, psso.
5the row (= RS): Knit until 5-6-7 sts remains on needle, slip following st as if to K, K1, psso.
6th row (= WS): Purl until 5-6-7 sts remains on needle, slip following st as if to P, P1, psso.
Continue until it remains 1 sts less before you slip 1 st.
Continue until 8-10-12 sts remains on needle.

Socks: The piece is knitted in the round from mid back. Cast on 80-90-100 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with Karisma and work in rib – see explanation above. When rib measures 2 cm continues with diagram M.1. When piece measures 20 cm turn your work – i.e. continue to knit from the WS (the 20 cm that’s been knitted is to be folded when the sock is finished). K1 round at the same time dec 14-18-22 sts evenly distributed = 66-72-78 sts. P1 round. Put 1 marking thread in work. Continue to measure from this point onwards. Knit following round like this: P the first 15-18-21 sts, M.2 (= 36 sts), P the last 15-18-21 sts. When piece measures 5 cm, dec 1 st on every side of M.2 on every other cm a total of 11-12-13 times (dec by P2 sts tog) = 44-48-52 sts. When piece measures 33-36-39 cm slip center 24 sts on top of foot on 1 thread. Then knit 5-5½-6 cm in stocking stitch over the remaining 20-24-28 sts in back (= heel). Then dec for heel - read Heel dec above. After heel dec pick up 11-13-15 sts on every side of heel. Divide all sts on double pointed needles = 54-60-66 sts. Knit M.3 over center 24 sts on top of foot (rem sts in stocking stitch). At the same time dec like this: K2 tog before M.3 and the K2 twisted tog after M.3 (i.e. twist by knitting in the back loops instead of front) on every other round a total of 6 times = 42-48-54 sts. Knit until foot measures approx 18-20-22 cm measured from heel edge (i.e. where heel dec starts). Now continues with stocking stitch over all sts. Put 1 marking thread in every side of foot, i.e. 22-24-26 sts on top of foot and 20-24-28 sts under the foot. Dec for toes on both sides of every marking thread like this: K2 tog before marking thread and K2 twisted tog after marking thread. Repeat dec on every other round a total of 3 times = 30-36-42 sts. Continue dec on every round a total of 6-7-9 times = 6-8-6 sts. Pull a thread through the remaining sts and sew away ends.

Vielen Dank für diese tolle Anleitung. Die Strümpfe sehen im Original schöner aus wie auf Eurem Foto und war für mich als Anfänger leicht verständlich nach zu stricken. Inzwischen habe ich schon 3 Paar gestricht und es macht immer wieder Spaß.

Alexandra 08.06.2016 - 21:34:

When i get to this part in the M2 chart do I pearl the 6 after i pearl the first 18 or do i knit them I'm not sure how to determine if I am working on the right side or wrong side now? Knit following round like this: P the first 15-18-21 sts, chart M.2 (= 36 sts), P the last 15-18-21 sts. I hope you understand my question thank you , Alex

DROPS Design 09.06.2016 kl. 08:49:

Dear Alexandra, when working M.2 you are now working from RS and WS of M.1 is facing you (will be folded at the very end). M.2 is 36 sts in width, work rounds like this: P the first 15-18-21 sts from beg of round, then work the 36 sts in M.2 starting to read at the bottom corner on the right side towards the left and P the last 15-18-21 sts on round. Happy knitting!

Alexandra 18.05.2016 - 16:05:

I'm talking about the Drops long Sock pattern their is M,M2, M3 Diagram it's just a little harder to understand . Thanks, Alex

DROPS Design 18.05.2016 kl. 17:11:

Dear Alexandra, then follow the legend to diagram, and start reading diagram from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left every round. 1 square = 1 st x 1 round. Read more here. Happy knitting!

Alexandra 18.05.2016 - 04:38:

Okay What about the empty space at the bottom of the diagrams? What is that about? I'm sorry I'm new and to doING and reading diagrams. Thank you, Alexandra

DROPS Design 18.05.2016 kl. 09:23:

Dear Alexandra, an empty space can be added at the bottom of a diagram when there are less sts on some rows before you inc and get then more sts than on previous rows. Maybe you could ask your question on the pattern you are thinking about, it might help to make an accurate answer. Happy knitting!

Alexandra Dick 29.04.2016 - 05:27:

I am wondering about the pattern for 103-10 are you to read the diagram from top to bottom or bottom to top? And is it read right to left or left to right? And what are the empty space at the bottom of diagram ment for? And are you to repeat pattern like the M1 it was p1,k4,p1,k4 do you continue doing that for a whole round? I tried finding a video to help but was unable to . Thank you

DROPS Design 29.04.2016 kl. 09:09:

Dear Mrs Dick, diagrams are read from bottom up starting on the corner on the right side, every round from the right towards the left (see here) 1st round in M1 will be workd; (K4, P1,K4, P1) repeat from (to) over all sts on round. Happy knitting!

Hallo, danke für die schnelle Antwort. Genau so habe ich die Anleitung auch verstanden, hatte schon bedenken, ich hätte es nicht kapiert. Meinem Mann ist das aber -zu langweilig- (OTon). Da ich für ihn die Maschenzahl ohnehin ändern muss, bekommt er auf der Rückseite M3 gestrickt (bis FerseI und in den linken Maschen zw. beiden Mustern kann ich super die Abnahmen für die Wade vornehmen. Gruß Birgitt

Birgitt 14.03.2016 - 14:25:

Hallo, das ist eine gute Anleitung und ergibt ein wunderbares Muster, Zum Ausprobieren habe ich eine Maschenprobe angefertigt. Nun geht es an den Strumpf. Dazu meine Frage: Das Muster (M2) wird nur auf der Vorderseite des Strumpfes gearbeitet, die Rückseite besteht nur aus linken Maschen? Oder habe ich etwas falsch verstanden? Danke für Ihre Antwort Gruß Birgitt Jestädt

DROPS Design 14.03.2016 kl. 14:57:

Liebe Birgitt, ja, das Muster ist nur auf der vorderen Seite des Strumpfes. Hier sehen Sie die Mutereinteilung: li. über die ersten 15-18-21 M., M2 (= 36 M.) stricken, li. über die letzten 15-18-21 M.

Cathy 06.02.2016 - 00:11:

Hi - in the picture it doesn't look like 8" has been turned over at the top... maybe only 4"? I just wanted to make sure I understood the pattern correctly. Thanks

DROPS Design 08.02.2016 kl. 11:03:

Dear Cathy, the ribbing at the beg are worked until piece measures 8" then turn the work so that the edge will be folded outwards (and be seen from RS) and so that M.2 will be worked from RS when folded is done. Fold will be approx. 4". Happy knitting!

Heather Fryer-Goba 11.12.2015 - 05:02:

Ok so i have finished the roll down part and turned it inside out....however....when you pearl the first eighteen st and the last 18 sts.....they are coming out on the the original rs....that is how the pattern reads.....i am frustrated

DROPS Design 11.12.2015 kl. 10:03:

Dear Mrs Fryer-Goba, the top side of sock (with M1) will be then folded down, ie when you turn inside out, you continue working from RS (M2 and rest of sock) so that M1 looks from WS but at the end, you fold the top of sock down so that it will look from RS (like a hem). Happy knitting!

Monika 08.12.2015 - 20:24:

Altså, når de förste 20 cm er ferdig vrenger jeg arbeidet og strikker etter mönstret M2? For mitt problem nå er at mönstret kommer fram på innsiden så når kanten brettes ned kommer vrangsiden av de förste 20cm frem. Hjelp!!!

DROPS Design 09.12.2015 kl. 08:44:

Hej Monika, Ja det stemmer, når du har strikket de første 20 cm vrenger du arbeidet og lader vrangen være retsiden resten af arbejdet. God fornøjelse!
