I just looked at it today. Have not made it yet.

Lena 27.02.2019 - 04:32:

After picking up the ten stitches from the first side. Do you knit the 21 stitches across and then pick up the other 10 stitches?

DROPS Design 27.02.2019 kl. 09:02:

Dear Lena, yes correct: you first work the 23 sts from heel, then pick up 10 sts on the left side of heel, work the 21 sts from upper foot, pick up 10 sts on the right side of heel and join = 52 sts. Happy knitting!

Marcheta Gallant 12.02.2019 - 01:26:

When you start M1 , it saysto continue for 4cm. Is this from the start of the M1?

DROPS Design 12.02.2019 kl. 09:24:

Hello Marcheta. You measure 4 cm from the very start of the job. Happy knitting!

Paula Hynes 10.02.2019 - 18:54:

In Drops !25-15, when do you use M2 in this please . I only see where to use M1. Thanks Paula

DROPS Design 10.02.2019 kl. 19:36:

Dear Paula, you'll work M.2 at the end of the pattern, when you'll decrase on upper foot as follows: Work M.2 over M.1 (1-2-3 sts each side of M.1 worked in stocking st as before). Happy knitting!

Paula Hynes 10.02.2019 - 18:50:

When do you use M2 in the pattern for the Alaska socks? I only see M1 used in this pattern.

DROPS Design 10.02.2019 kl. 19:36:

Dear Paula, you'll work M.2 at the end of the pattern, when you'll decrase on upper foot as follows: Work M.2 over M.1 (1-2-3 sts each side of M.1 worked in stocking st as before). Happy knitting!

Sue McKay 10.02.2019 - 18:12:

When u r ribbing the 21 stitches on the mid size and it says knit 21/4" is that from the top of the sock or from where u start the ribbing...if its from the top I cant pick up 10 stitches theres not enough knitted

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 03:54:

Dear Sue, after the ribbing you divide teh stitches for the foot and th eheel, and knit only on the heel stitches for 5-5.5-6 cm, and do teh decreases. The stitches for the gusset should be picked up on the two sides of this heel flap. Happy Knitting!

Dora 04.02.2019 - 02:40:

I'm doing the larger size after the heel is knit having some problem with the decrease for the heel .

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 14:29:

Dear Dora, can you please explain the kind of problem you have with the decrease for the heel?

Nathalie34 24.01.2019 - 08:31:

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas ou doit se mettre le marqueur au niveau du talon.

DROPS Design 24.01.2019 kl. 10:29:

Bonjour Nathalie34, le marqueur se met au niveau des mailles sur l'aiguilles, on va mesurer la longueur du pied à partir de ce marqueur, juste avant les diminutions du talon. Bon tricot!

Ida 04.12.2018 - 08:21:

Vad menas med "Sticka M.2 över M.1 (1-2-3 m på varje sida av M.1 slätstickas som innan)"? Ska jag sticka bara m2 på ovansidan när jag tar ihop för tå? Vad menas i så fall det i parentesen.

DROPS Design 06.12.2018 kl. 11:46:

Hei Ida. Det betyr at du skal strikke M.2 over de samme maskene som du har strikket M.1 over tidligere. Altså du strikker ikke lenger M.1, men M.2 isteden. Og du har 1-2-3 masker på hver side som strikkes i glattstrikk som før. M.2 strikkes kun på oversiden av foten, på undersiden av fotne feller du som forklart: Strikk de 2 m etter merketråden vridd rett sm og de 2 m før merketråden rett sm. Dette gjøres samtidig som du strikker M.2 og feller som anvist i diagrammet. God fornøyelse

Rose 15.11.2018 - 20:59:

I have just completed the decrease for the heel and I’m finding myself on the wrong side with 9 stitches. Should I turn and knit across before picking up the 9? Also can you tell me how many stitches per needle for3 needles as 9 heel stitches does not split evenly?

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 09:27:

Dear Rose, turn work so that you are from RS again to pick up the sts: work the sts from heel, pick up 9 sts on the left side of the heel sts, knit the 21 sts from upper foot back on needle, pick up 9 sts on the right side of heel. You can divide the sts with all sts from upper foot on one needle and the new sts + the sts from heel divided onto 2 needles. Happy knitting!
