GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

Worked back and forth on needle from mid under foot in garter st – SEE ABOVE.
Cast on 26-28-32 (36-40) sts on needle size 6 mm with Eskimo. As seen from RS, the left side of piece = toe and the right side of piece = top of leg. Work shortened rows mid back as follows (row 1 = RS): work 6 sts, turn piece, slip 1 st as if to K, work return row. Work 12 sts, turn piece, slip 1 st as if to K, work return row. Work 1 row on all sts.
Now dec for heel as follows: Insert a marker in st 13-14-16 (18-20) from toe. On next row (= WS) dec 1 st on each side of st with marker by K2 tog. Repeat the dec on every other row another 2-2-2 (3-3) times = 20-22-26 (28-32) sts. Remove marker. Continue until piece measures approx 9-10-11 (12-13) cm from the last dec – adjust so that next row is from RS.
Insert a marker in st 10-11-13 (14-16) from toe. Now inc for heel (from RS) as follows: Inc 1 st on each side of st with marker by working 2 sts in 1 st. Repeat the inc on every other row another 2-2-2 (3-3) times = 26-28-32 (36-40) sts. Work 1 row on all sts from WS.
Now work shortened rows mid back as follows:
Work 12 sts, turn piece, slip 1 st as if to K, work return row. Work 6 sts, turn piece, slip 1 st as if to K, work return row. Cast off all sts on next row
Sew sock tog mid under foot and mid back, sew in outer loops of sts to avoid a chunky seam. Run a thread round the toe, tighten and fasten.

Pattern is wrong

Patti Giorgi 16.08.2018 - 04:21:

Tried making these. Heel increases and decreases dont line up. Shouldnt markers be place at same number of sts from toe.

DROPS Design 16.08.2018 kl. 09:44:

Dear Mrs Giorgi, the marker should stay in the same stitch when working, so that the number of sts between on each side of marker will first decrease, then increase. Happy knitting!

(no entiendo cual es el centro de la parte de atras). por favor ayudame, me confunde ,dime todo lo que me pueda ayudar.,de este patron Gracias adela

Hola Adela, contesté hace días a esta pregunta pero me sigue apareciendo como no respondida. Lamento si no te llego. Te decía que el patrón 25-4 tiene un video explicativo que te puede ayudar a trabajar este patrón aunque no sea exactamente igual. Con el centro de la parte de atrás se refiere a la parte de detrás de la pierna o el tobillo.

Hvis man laver en ekstra indtagning og udtagning således det bliver 4 rækker ialt bliver hælen dybere og sidder bedre på foden

Aitáh, tegin paranduse!

Mari 20.12.2011 - 00:50:

Eestikeelses versioonis on minu meelest viga - tagapool on kirjutatud: "Koo lühendatud ridu tagaosas järgmiselt: Koo 12 s, pööra, tõsta 1 s kudumata, koo tagasirida. Koo 1 rida kõigi silmustega" Seda viimast lauset inglisekeelses versioonis ei ole ja sokk sai ka kuidagi parem inglisekeelse versiooni järgi kududes. seega lühendatud ridu kududes peale 12s ja tagasirida peaks tulema kohe 6s, mitte 1 rida kõigi silmustega.

Hej, om du tittar på mönstret så är det en förklaring på vilket som är rätsidan och vilket som är avigsidan: Sett från rätsidan blir vänster sida av arb = tån, och höger sida = överst på skaftet. Lycka till!

Ann-Charlotte 03.10.2011 - 22:57:

Dum fråga, men vid rätstickning, vhur vet man vilken sida som är rät/avig??
