Worked in the round. Cast on 66-72-72 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with Fabel. K 1 round, then work 4 rounds rib K1/P1. Continue in M.1 (1 repeat = 12 sts) on all sts. After M.1 work M.2, AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 65-78-78 sts on first round of M.2. After M.2 work M.3, AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 64-72-72 sts on first round in M.3.

HEEL DECREASE: In all the instructions for decreasing the for the heel I have seen there is always an EVEN number of heel flap stitches. In this pattern there are only 31. How do you make it come out right with an odd number?

DROPS Design 09.09.2019 kl. 08:35:

Dear Mrs Guenther, work the heel over the 31 sts then work the HEEL DECREASE as explained: you will decrease 1 stitch on each side (a total of 8 times) until 15 sts remain on the needle. Happy knitting!

Joan 13.03.2019 - 04:07:

I am making the small size so cast on 66 stitches, completed M1 with no problem, decreased stitches my 1 as pattern says to start M2. There are 26 stitches in the M2 repeat. How does this work with 65 total stitches since 65 is not a multiple of 26? There are two complete repeats and 13 stitches left for a third repeat. What am I not understanding?

DROPS Design 13.03.2019 kl. 08:03:

Hi Joan. Sometimes the stitch count is not divisible with full/whole repeats of the diagram in width. Please see the lesson HERE. Happy knitting!

In het patroon ontbreekt de navolgende instructie na “Brei na M.3 1 nld met Delight over alle steken” en zet ondertussen 1 stuk van de ondervoet (= 35 stk) over naar de bovenvoet (= 37 stk). “Ga verder als volgt.... enz. “

Josephine Nellerup 24.04.2018 - 16:03:

Hur gör man förändringen av maskantalet här, var när hur? stickas M.2 SAMTIDIGT som m-antalet justeras till 65-78-78 på första v i M.2. När M.2 har stickats en gång på höjden, stickas M.3 SAMTIDIGT som m-antalet minskas till 64-72-72 m på första v i M.3.

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 13:13:

Hei Josephine. Det betyr at du øker eller feller jevnt fordelt på første omgangen av mønsteret. Altså når du justerer maskeantallet på første omgangen av M.2 skal du for størrelse 35/37 felle 1 maske, for størrelse 38/40 øke 6 masker, og for størrelse 41/43 øke 6 masker jevnt fordelt. Det samme gjelder når du feller i M.3: du feller jevnt fordelt. Du finner ut hvilke masker du bør felle ved å dele det gamle masketallet på antall fellinger. Feks, for størrelse 38/40: 78 delt på 6 = 13. Da strikker du hver 12 og 13 maske sammen rundt første omgangen av M.3. God fornøyelse

Tehdäänkö tähän kantapää samalla tavalla kuin ohjeeseen 116-55?

DROPS Design 21.09.2016 kl. 16:53:

Hei! Kyseisten sukkien kantapäät neulotaan eri tavalla.

Liebe Monika, Vielen Dank für den Hinweis, wir werden das gleich korrigieren.

Monika Roggo 21.01.2014 - 10:40:

Laut Orginal Anleitung ist der Anschlag 66-72-72 M (nicht 66-66-72)

Louise 21.01.2011 - 21:02:

For at gøre overgangen mellem omg finere i M1 kan den laves således oooooooooooo xxxxxxxxxxxx oooooooooooo xxxxxxxxxxxx ooxooxooxoox ooxooxooxoox ooxooxooxoox ooxooxooxoox xxxxxxxxxxxx (o=delight, x=fabel)
