STRIPES:
Crochet each round with 2 threads Fabel in stripes as follows: * 2 rounds with 1 thread Fun lilac + 1 thread yellow/pink, 2 rounds with 1 thread Sea mist + 1 thread Yellow/pink*, repeat from *-*.

DECREASING TIP:
Dec 1 dc/sc as follows:
Crochet 1 dc/sc, but wait with the last pull-through, crochet next dc/sc, but when doing the last pull-through pull thread through all sts on hook = 1 dec dc/sc.
--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------

SOCKS:
Crochet from top down.
Ch 42-44-47 with hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 with 1 thread sea mist + 1 thread yellow/pink and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Continue in the round as follows:
Ch 3 (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the first 1-3-1 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 34-36-38 dc. Crochet 1 round with 1 dc in each dc.
Now continue in STRIPES - see above - and as follows:
ROUND 3: ch 3 (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the first 9 dc, * skip 1 dc, 2 dc (= 1 dc-group) in next dc *, repeat from *-* a total of 7-8-9 times, 1 dc in each of the last 10 dc and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
There are now 20 dc and 7-8-9 dc-groups on round.
ROUND 4: ch 3 (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the first 9 dc, 2 dc (= 1 dc-group) between last dc and first dc-group from previous round, 1 dc-group between all dc-groups (= 6-7-8 times), 1 dc in each of the last 10 dc and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 5: ch 3 (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the first 9 dc, 1 dc-group between all dc-groups from previous round (6-7-8 times), 1 dc-group between the last dc-group and the first dc from previous round, 1 dc in each of the next 10 dc and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
Repeat round 4 and 5. AT THE SAME TIME on 8th round dec 1 dc each side of 3 ch mid back - see DECREASING TIP! There are now 18 dc and 7-8-9 dc-groups on round.
Repeat the dec on 18th round. There are now 16 dc and 7-8-9 dc-groups on round. Continue until there are 19-20-21 rounds, piece measures approx 21-22-23 cm / 8 1/4"-8 3/4"-9". Now crochet heel as follows:

HEEL:
Crochet the heel in the 2 threads used on the last round before heel.
Ch 1, then 1 sl st in 3rd ch from previous row, and 1 sl st in each of the first 7 dc. Turn piece. Crochet 1 sc in each of the 8 sl sts, then 1 sc in each of the next 8 dc = 16 sc (= heel-sts). Turn piece (next row = from RS). Now crochet sc back and forth on heel-sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 sc - see DECREASING TIP - each side on every row until 8 sc remain. Turn piece (next row = from RS). Insert a marker.
Crochet 1 sc in each sc, AT THE SAME TIME at the end of every row crochet 2 new sc along the side on heel. AT THE SAME TIME at beg of every row dec 1 sc. Continue like this until there are 16 sc on row again – you have now crochet in all the rows along the side of heel. Continue in the round.

FOOT:
Continue with Stripes as before.
Work 4 sc between heel-sts and last row on leg before heel. Then crochet 1 dc-group between heel-sts and first dc-group from last row before heel. Now crochet 1 dc-group between all dc-groups on upper foot (= 6-7-8 times), 4 sc between dc-group on upper foot and heel-sts, 1 sl st in each of the next 8 sc on heel and 1 sl st in the next sc. Round now beg here = mid under foot.
ROUND 1: Ch 3 (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the first 11 sc, 1 dc-group between all dc-groups from previous row (= 6-7-8 dc-groups), 1 dc-group between the last dc-group and first sc from previous row and 1 dc in each of the last 12 sc/sl sts. There are now 24 dc under foot and 7-8-9 dc-groups on upper foot.
ROUND 2: Ch 3 (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the first 9 dc, dec 1 dc, crochet 1 dc-group between the last dc and first dc-group from previous round, then 1 dc-group between all dc-groups (= 6-7-8 times), dec 1 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 10 dc and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. You have now dec 1 dc each side of dc-group on upper foot = 22 dc under foot and 7-8-9 dc-groups on upper foot.
ROUND 3: Ch 3 (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the first 10 dc, 1 dc-group between each dc-group from previous round (= 6-7-8 dc-groups), 1 dc-group between the last dc-group and first dc from previous round, 1 dc in each of the last 11 dc.
Repeat round 2 and 3 a total of 6-6-7 times. Piece now measures approx 19-19-22 cm / 7½"-7½"-8 3/4" from marker on heel and there are 12-12-10 dc under foot and 7-8-9 dc-groups on upper foot.

TOE:
Crochet the toe in the 2 threads used on the last round before toe.
Ch 1, then 1 sc in each st and finish with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 26-28-28 sc.
Insert a marker each side with 12-13-13 sc on upper foot and under foot. Continue in the round, AT THE SAME TIME dec 2 sc each side on every other round as follows: Work round until 1 sc before sc with marker, work 1 sc but wait with the last pull-through (= 2 sts on hook), work 1 sc in sc with marker but wait with the last pull-through (= 3 sts on hook), work 1 sc in next sc, but when doing the last pull-through pull thread through all sts on hook = 2 dec sc.
Dec like this each side 3-4-4 times = 14-12-12 sc on round. Work 1 round with 1 sc in each sc. Cut the thread. Place the sock flat and sew toe tog. Fasten threads.

Comment faire au 3ème tour * sauter 1B,2B (=1groupe de B) dans la B suivante *

DROPS Design 13.11.2017 kl. 10:00:

Bonjour Véronique, après les 9 premières brides du tour, (sautez la bride suivante, et crochetez 2 brides dans la bride suivante), répétez de (à) 7-8-9 fois au total (cf taille), et terminez par 1 bride dans chacune des 10 dernières brides. Bon crochet!

Christine 14.07.2017 - 18:46:

Hi, I am busy with the 5th round ..... where do I do the 1st tr group. It says between all the groups, but if I do that after the 9th tr, then there is a large gap from there to between the first 2 groups. If I do a tr group in the stitch directly after the 9 tr then I end up with too many groups?? Am I making sense .......??

DROPS Design 17.07.2017 kl. 08:09:

Dear Christine, work 1 tr-group between 1st tr-group and 2nd tr-group (the tr-group on row 5 will be straight above the tr-groups on row 3). Happy crocheting!

Maria 14.10.2016 - 20:44:

I have been crocheting for over 40 years and am having trouble with this pattern. After my initial chain and sl st, I am lost. What does 1dc in each of the first 1-3-1ch mean? I understand the double crochet, but what is 1-3-1ch?? I have tried several things, but keep having to rip out.

DROPS Design 16.10.2016 kl. 13:16:

Dear Maria, the different number means different sizes, so, for example, if you're working size 35/37, you've to crochet 42 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Then you've to continue in the round working 3 ch (= 1 dc), 1 dc in the first 1 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 34 dc. Happy crocheting!

Lena 29.09.2016 - 08:20:

Ursäkta, såg nu att jag fått svar 😊, tack!

Lena 29.09.2016 - 08:17:

Hej! Skrev en fråga 14/8 men har inte fått svar. Kan jag förvänta mig ett svar? Om inte försöker jag mig på att virka något annat....

DROPS Design 29.09.2016 kl. 10:45:

Ser du har set dit svar. Fint og god fornöjelse videre

Lena 14.08.2016 - 15:33:

Ska "sömmen" (med de 3 lm ) bak på benet och under foten vara sned? Jag har tittat på videon för att virka runt med st men det blir ändå snett. Sedan undrar jag om man på v 4 (strl 38/40) efter sista st-gr ska hoppa över en maska innan man gör dom 10 sista? Jag har 11 maskor kvar. På v 5 får jag 1:a st-gr mellan sista st och första st-gr på v 4, varför blir det så? Enda sättet att få st-gr på v 5 mellan st-gr på v 4 är att jag hoppar över 2 maskor innan jag gör första st-gr.

DROPS Design 15.09.2016 kl. 12:58:

Hej Lena. Nej, sömmen skal blive paa samme sted, du skal sörge for ikke at forskyde starten. Laeg maerke til vi har lavet en lille rettelse i antal af masker d. 6/9, maaske hjaelper det med dit problem senere :)

Kate 30.06.2016 - 18:04:

I've chained 46 to start, but the next round always comes out as 37 dc not 38 as the pattern states?! I don't understand why. Any advice appreciated. Thank you.

DROPS Design 30.06.2016 kl. 19:23:

Dear Kate, in the larger size, you start with 46 ch, then to avoid that the fundation chain will tighten piece, you will skip chains evenly on 1st round, ie (UK-English - see US here): Crochet 3 ch (= 1 tr), 1 tr in the first ch, *skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 4 ch*, repeat from *-*, you can then skip 1 ch less and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round to get the 38 tr. Happy crocheting!

Mareen 14.04.2016 - 21:30:

Hallo! Ich verstehe leider den zweiten Absatz der Anleitung für die Ferse nicht. Kann da vielleicht jemand helfen? Vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 15.04.2016 kl. 07:25:

Liebe Mareen, Sie häkeln über die 16 Fersenmaschen und nehmen am Anfang und am Ende jeder R je 1 M ab, bis Sie noch 8 Maschen haben, dann nehmen Sie im gleichen Rhythmus wieder auf, bis Sie wieder 16 M haben. Das ist dann die Ferse.

Lilian Van Berkel 26.01.2016 - 23:26:

Ik heb de sokken af. Ze zijn leuk geworden, alleen lijken ze op het plaatje toch anders als bij mij. Bij jullie lijkt het voor en achterstel bij jullie mooi recht te lopen. Bij mij loopt middenachter toch een beetje gedraaid naar voren. Weet niet wat ik fout heb gedaan maar ik laat het maar zo. Zonde om ze helemaal uit te halen

Anja 25.11.2015 - 22:16:

Ik heb net de hiel af, en heb nu 16 vasten. Bij het begin van de voet moet ik 4 vasten haken, maar ik heb geen idee waar die moeten komen; ik ben al aanbeland bij de eerste stokjesgroep van de laatste toer van het been. Wat doe ik niet goed?

DROPS Design 01.12.2015 kl. 16:48:

Hoi Anja. Je haakt langs de zijkant van het hielgedeelte tot de laatste toer op de pijp voordat je begon met de hiel.
