K 1 round with red and now work M.1 on all sts (= 4-4-4-5 repeats across the round). After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 keep the first 12-12-13-15 sts on needle, slip the next 24-24-22-30 sts on a stitch holder (= mid upper foot) and keep the last 12-12-13-15 sts on needle = 24-24-26-30 sts for heel. Work stocking st back and forth on needle on heel sts with dark grey for 4.5-5-5.5-6 cm. Insert a marker. Now work HEEL DECREASES – see above! After heel dec pick up 10-10-12-10 sts with dark grey each side of heel and slip the 24-24-22-30 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 52-52-56-60 sts.
Insert a marker each side of the 24-24-24-32 sts mid upper foot.

Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 4 times = 44-44-48-52 sts. When piece measures approx 16-18-20-22 cm from marker on heel (= approx 4-4-4-5 cm remain, after 3 rounds with light grey) K 1 round in dark grey on all sts.
Now insert 1 marker each side with 22-22-24-26 sts on upper foot and under foot. Continue in the round in dark grey stocking st on all sts.

I did not see the chart for the Santa. Is there a link?

Dear Betty, you will find the diagram for the Santas at the very bottom of the page (diagram M.1). Happy knitting!

Hello, I'm thinking of ordering Karisma yarn for these socks. Just looking at the photo, I see that there is an error in yarn. It should be 100g for light grey and 50g for dark. Regards, Irina

Hejsan! Är novis om detta m mönsterstickning, men jag tänkte göra ett försök m dessa. Men när jag ser på mönstret så visas det upponer tycker jag! Tänker jag fel elle?

Du börjar sticka nederst i diagrammet från höger mot vänster. Det är då samma som överst på skaftet och ner mot foten. Se även vår video om mönsterstickning. Lycka till!

Har stickat ett par i storlek 38-40, och det räckte med ett nystan av varje färg - det ljusgrå, som enl mönstret ska gå åt ett nystan gick verkligen hela nystanet åt, ca 1 dm kvar. Det röda och det mörkgrå, som ska gå åt två nystan av varje hade jag ca 10 gram kvar på varje nystan. Fler som har samma erfarenhet?
