Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 72 sts for all sizes on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Alpaca. K 1 round, P 1 round, AT THE SAME TIME on round 2 dec 4 sts evenly = 68 sts. Work M.1 on all sts (= 4 repeats). When piece measures 10-11-12 cm keep the first 25 sts on needle for heel, slip the next 35 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot) and keep the last 8 sts on needle for heel = 33 heel sts. Work stocking st back and forth on heel sts, AT THE SAME TIME on first row dec 7-5-3 sts evenly = 26-28-30 sts. When heel measures 5-5.5-6 cm insert a marker in heel – now measure piece from here! Now work HEEL DECREASES – see above! After heel dec pick up 13-14-16 sts each side of heel and slip the 35 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 75-79-83 sts. Continue in pattern on upper foot as before (= 1 full repeat in the middle with 1 half repeat each side – beg and finish with K1) and stocking st on remaining sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec each side as follows: K2 into back of loop before the 35 middle sts on upper foot and K2 tog after the middle 35 sts on upper foot. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 10 times = 55-59-63 sts. Continue until piece measures 17-19-21 cm from marker on heel (= 5-5-6 cm remain). Insert a marker each side with 27-29-31 sts on upper foot and 28-30-32 sts under foot. Continue in stocking st on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes each side of both markers as follows: Before marker: K2 tog. After marker: K2 tog into back of loop. Repeat the dec each side on every other round a total of 7-6-7 times and then on every round 4-6-6 times = 11 sts left on needle. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.

Zu Beginn der Anleitung steht Sockenlänge 10 11 12 cm, muss wohl heißen Schafthöhe/Länge

Bonjour si vous pouvez m'aider quand je fais le point de vague apres le diafragme je me retrouve avec plus de maille que faire merci pour votre conseil cordialement

Bonjour Alexis, pour bien vous repérer dans le point fantaisie, je vous recommande de placer un marqueur (fil de couleur contrastée) entre chaque rapport du point fantaisie en largeur, ainsi vous pourrez vérifier plus facilement votre nombre de mailles. Bon tricot !

Das Muster ist viel zu groß. Habe den Schaft auf 13 Maschen pro Nadel verkleinert und selbst das ist noch zu groß.Den Fußunterteil hab ich nochmals auf 10 Maschen verschmälert. hier das modifizierte Muster: V/ / 0 V 0 V 0 V 0 / / V Gestrickt für einen Knitalong: dropsdeutsch-kal-cal-socken2010 von clarice39

Nydelig sokker,men en litt for "grå"gulfarve.I mønstret er det en feil.Det står 2sm.g.tre,så kast med 2r mellom.Men det skal være 1r,mellom kastene.
