NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

When switching ball with Polaris, split the old strand in two on the last 15 cm / 6'' – cut off one part, do the same on the new strand. Place the first and last 15 cm / 6'' on top of each other so that the yarn is the normal thickness and continue to work – this is done to make the transition invisible.

Worked back and forth at the top of the leg and downwards. Cast on 20-20-21 sts on needles size 12 mm / US 17 with Polaris. Work 4 rows in GARTER ST - see explanation above - REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Continue in stockinette st - AT THE SAME TIME on next row from WS, P the first 2 and last 2 sts on row tog = 18-18-19 sts. Work back and forth until piece measures 12-12-14 cm / 4 3/4''-4 3/4"-5½" - continue work to shape heel as follows, starting from RS:
* K 6, turn and K 5 back, inc by K 2 sts in last st on row, turn *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times.
* K 8, turn and K 6 back, dec by K tog the last 2 sts, turn *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times.
Work 1 row over all sts - insert a marker on this row - now measure piece from here.
Continue working as follows, starting from WS:
* P 6, turn and P 5 back, inc by P 2 sts in last st on row, turn *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times.
* P 8, turn and P 6 back, dec by P tog the last 2 sts, turn *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times = 18-18-19 sts.

Work back and forth in stockinette st until piece measures 18-18-20 cm / 7"-7"-8" from marker = approx. 4-6-6 cm / 1½"-2 3/8"-2 3/8" remain until finished measurements. Now dec for toes as follows: Work back and forth over all sts, while AT THE SAME TIME dec 4-3-3 sts evenly on every row from RS a total of 2-3-3 times = 10-9-10 sts remain. Pull yarn through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Sew seam mid under foot and up to cast on edge, sew edge to edge in front loop of sts to avoid a chunky seam.

Bonjour Valéry, Une vidéo va être faite pour montrer cette technique. Ces explications correspondent à la façon de faire le talon: on tricote des rangs raccourcis en augmentant en même temps - pour toute assistance personnelle à la réalisation d'un modèle, rappelez-vous que votre magasin DROPS pourra vous aider, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Salve, vorrei una spiegazione a questa frase: Lavorare 1 p su tutte le maglie . Che significa? Come devo procedere?

DROPS Design 14.12.2014 kl. 22:42:

Buonasera Federica. Abbiamo corretto il testo: bisogna lavorare un ferro su tutte le m. Grazie per la segnalazione e buon lavoro!

SVANDA Laetitia 27.06.2014 - 13:22:

Bonjour, je souhaiterais réaliser ce modèle mais je n'ai jamais tricoté en aller-retour. Comment dois-je procéder ? Je vous remercie

DROPS Design 27.06.2014 kl. 14:02:

Bonjour Mme Svanda, tricoter en allers et retours signifie tricoter en rangs, un rang après l'autre, alternativement sur l'endroit et sur l'envers. Vous trouverez à droite de la photo sous l'onglet "vidéos" différentes vidéos pour vous aider à la réalisation de ce modèle. Bon tricot!

Hola,discúlpame nuevamente la pregunta de montada de puntos para iniciar entonces son 20 para talla 35-37, 20 para 39-40 y 21 para talla 40- 42 lo que me pasa es que acá en Colombia no se consiguen las mismas lanas

DROPS Design 23.09.2013 kl. 15:39:

Hola Nubia! Es correcto y no te olvides hacer la muestra con la lana que vas a tejer para comparar la tensión de la muestra.

Nubia 18.09.2013 - 17:23:

Muchisimas gracias por tu repuesta, y felecitaciones por esta página ya que las manualidaes me encantan.

Nubia 10.09.2013 - 17:47:

Hola no entiendo muy los 12 y 14 cms al inicio de la calceta, no se si se teje el centro un poco más hasta tener la medida, gracias

DROPS Design 16.09.2013 kl. 15:37:

Hola Nubia! Tejer de ida y vuelta hasta que la pieza mida 12 (para la talla 35/37)-12 (para la talla 38/39)-14 (para la talla 40-42) cm.
