DECREASING TIP:
Dec 1 st as follows:
Crochet 1 dc/tr but wait with last pull-through (= 2 sts on hook), work next dc/tr and when doing the last pull-through pull thread through all sts on hook – 1 st dec.
CROCHET TIP:
Replace first dc on round with 1 ch.
Replace first tr on round with 3 ch.
Finish each round with 1 sl st.
On heel turn each row with 1 ch.
HEEL DECREASES:
ROW 1 (= RS): Crochet 19-20-22 dc, 7-8-8 dc now remain on row, dec 1 dc – SEE DECREASING TIP = 20-21-23 dc, turn piece.
ROW 2 (= WS): Crochet 13-13-15 dc, 7-8-8 dc now remain on row, dec 1 dc = 14-14-16 dc, turn piece.
ROW 3 (= RS): Crochet 13-13-15 dc, dec 1 dc, turn piece.
Repeat row 3 a total of 10-12-12 times, i.e. until all sts on each side of the middle 14-14-16 have been dec.
--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------
SOCK:
Crochet in the round.
Crochet 75-80-85 ch with crochet hook size 2 mm and off-white and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Crochet a round as follows: 3 ch, then 1 tr in each of the next 3 ch, skip 1 ch, * 1 tr in each of the next 4 ch, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 60-64-68 tr.
Change to wheat and continue as follows:
ROUND 1: 3 ch + 1 tr in first tr, skip 1 tr, * 2 tr in next tr, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 30-32-34 tr-groups.
ROUND 2: 3 ch, 2 tr between the first 2 tr-group, * 2 tr between the next 2 tr-groups *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 tr between the last and the first tr-group (i.e. where the 3 ch were crochet) and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 3: 3 ch, 1 tr between the first 2 tr-groups, * 2 tr between the next 2 tr-groups *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
Repeat round 2 and 3 alternately (crocheting round 2 only would cause the piece to twist). REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
When piece measures approx 14 cm crochet dc back and forth on the first 26-28-30 sts on round for heel. Continue until heel measures approx 5-5.5-6 cm. Insert a marker – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Now dec for heel – see HEEL DECREASES. After heel dec continue as follows: 1 tr in each of the 14-14-16 dc on heel, 14-15-16 tr along the side of heel, 1 tr in each of the 34-36-38 tr on upper foot and 14-15-16 tr along the other side of heel = 76-80-86 tr on round. Insert a marker each side of the 34-36-38 tr on upper foot. Continue in the round with tr, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 tr each side of the 34-36-38 tr on upper foot – SEE DECREASING TIP, and repeat the dec on every round a total of 10-10-11 times = 56-60-64 tr. Continue until piece measures 18.5-20.5-23 cm from marker on heel (= approx 3.5-3.5-4 cm remain). Change to off-white, insert a marker each side with 28-30-32 tr on upper foot and under foot. Continue as follows: 1 round with 1 dc in each tr, then 1 dc in each dc, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 dc each side of both markers – SEE DECREASING TIP, and repeat the dec on every round a total of 10-11-12 times = 16 dc left. On next round crochet 2 dc tog all the way round. Cut the thread, pull through remaining 8 dc, tighten and fasten.

Jeg forstår simpelthen ikke opskriften når jeg når til hælindtagningen? Jeg hækler 5,5 cm 28 fm frem og tilbage. Sætter et mærke. Så skal jeg tage ind. Tager 1 m ind efter beskrivelsen, men det kan jeg da ikke gøre 12 gange. Og hvornår, hvordan skal hæl og resten af foden samles? Jeg fatter det overhovedet ikke!

DROPS Design 07.12.2016 kl. 13:54:

Hej Pia. Jo, det kan du. I starten af opskriften staar der hvordan du haekler haelindtagning (se under HÆLINDTAGNING:) Og naar du er faerdig har du 16 fm tilbage paa haelen. Saa haekler du de 16 fm, 16 st langs siden (kanten) af haelen og 1 st i hver af de 38 st ovenpå foden, 16 st langs den anden side (kanten) af hælen. Herfra fortsaetter du rundt.

Bonjour, Dans le patron de chaussettes Drops 120-35 quand vous écrivez que pour diminuer 1 m ainsi: Crocheter 1 ms/ 1 B qu'est-ce que cela signifie? Que devons-nous crocheter 1 ms ou 1 B ????? Merci à l'avance, Viviane

DROPS Design 15.01.2015 kl. 09:25:

Bonjour Mme Lanoie, on diminue 1 ms ou 1 B (en fonction du point réalisé à ce moment là) en crochetant 1 ms ou 1 B dans la m suiv sans faire le dernier jeté, puis 1 ms ou 1 B dans la m suivante, et, au dernier jeté de cette 2e m, on écoule les 3 boucles sur le crochet. Après le talon, on diminue 1 B de chaque côté du pied ainsi, et pour le talon et la pointe, on diminue 1 ms comme indiqué. Bon crochet!

Wat betekent in het patroon =RS =WS

DROPS Design 10.05.2014 kl. 14:01:

Dit was een fout, het is aangepast. Er staat nu =GK en =VK, wat de afkortingen zijn voor goede kant en verkeerde kant.

Lob 05.08.2012 - 00:12:

Merci de votre réponse mais le reste de la chaussette que j'ai presque fini d'ailleurs va presque bien donc l 'échantillon est bon c'est vraiment la jambe qui est trop large peut être le point ?????

Lob 01.08.2012 - 13:19:

Bonjour ! J'ai commencé ce modèle et j'en suis après le talon mais j'ai un souci je trouve la partie jambe trop large le reste a l'air bien merci si vous avez une idée votre site est génial !!! bravo

DROPS Design 01.08.2012 kl. 14:57:

Bonjour Lob, avez-vous bien l'échantillon de 28 B x 16 rangs et 28 ms x 35 rangs = 10 x 10 cm ?

Carol, RS: sc 19, then sc 1 without last pull through, sc 1 more and then pull thread through all sts on hook, turn. WS: Now sc 13, then sc 1 without last pull through, sc 1 more and then pull thread through all sts on hook, turn. RS: sc 13, then sc 1 without last pull through, sc 1 more and then pull thread through all sts on hook, turn.

Carol 17.03.2010 - 01:47:

I have a question about the heel decreases for this pattern. I've crocheted 26 sc back and forth for 2 inches. I have a rectangular flap extending from the back of the sock. I'm having a hard time understanding the heel decreases. When I crochet 19 across do I only decrease 1 sc, then turn and sc 13 with 1 decrease? I know that's what the instructions say but I feel like I'm missing something. Thank you for your help.

Åh jätte bra med virkade sockar! Har svårt att sticka sockar!

Heike 15.01.2010 - 09:48:

Sie wirken schlicht aber sehr schön.
