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.
See diagrams M.1 (= 25 sts) and M.2 (= 5 sts).

HEEL DECREASE (worked in stockinette st):
Row 1 (= RS): Work until 10-11-11 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): Work until 10-11-11 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 3 (= RS): Work until 9-10-10 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 4 (= WS): Work until 9-10-10 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.
Continue dec like this with 1 less st before each dec until there are 15-15-17 sts on needle.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 70-70-70 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1or2 with Fabel. K 1 round. Work next round as follows: Diagram M.2 a total of 14 times on round. Work diagram M.2 a total of 3 times vertically. Then work next round as follows: Diagram M.2 over the first 10 sts, diagram M.1 over the next 25 sts, diagram M.2 over the next 10 sts, K the remaining 25 sts while AT THE SAME TIME dec 6-6-6 sts evenly over these 25 sts = 64-64-64 sts. Continue with pattern until piece measures 11-12-13 cm / 4 3/8"-4 3/4"-5 1/8". On next round inc 4-6-8 sts over the 19 sts in stockinette st (= 23-25-27 sts in stockinette st) = 68-70-72 sts in total. Then on next round divide the piece as follows: Slip the following sts on a stitch holder: Diagram M.2, diagram M.1 and diagram M.2 = 35-35-35 sts. The following sts are still on the needle for heel: Diagram M.2, 23-25-27 sts in stockinette st, diagram M.2 = 33-35-37 sts. Insert a marker here, now measure piece from here! Continue with pattern and stockinette st back and forth over heel sts. When heel measures 8-9-10 cm / 3 1/8"-3½"-4", insert another marker, now measure piece from here. Work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above - work all heel sts in stockinette st. After heel decrease, knit up 21-23-26 sts on each side of heel - knit up inside the outermost st on each side of heel sts and slip the 35-35-35 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 92-96-104 sts. Insert a marker before the M.2+M.1+M.2 on upper foot = beg of round. Continue with pattern - work sts under foot in stockinette st - AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round K tog the 3 sts before pattern and K tog the 3 sts after pattern (= 4 sts dec per round) - repeat this dec on every other round a total of 6-6-7 times, then continue dec on each side of pattern by K the 2 sts before pattern twisted tog (i.e. in back loop of st instead of front) and K the 2 sts after pattern tog (= 2 sts dec per round) - repeat dec on every other round a total of 3-4-4 times = 62-64-68 sts.
Continue working until piece measures 18-20-22 cm / 7''-8''-8¾'' from marker on heel (finish after 1 whole repetition of diagram M.1 = approx. 4-4-5 cm / 1½''-1½''-2'' remain for toes). Now work in stockinette st until finished measurements. Work 1 round while dec 12-10-8 sts over diagram M.1 = 50-54-60 sts.
Insert a marker in each side so that there are 25-27-30 sts on upper foot and 25-27-30 sts under foot. Now dec for toes on each side of both markers as follows: Work until 3 sts remain before marker: K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these sts), K 2 twisted tog - repeat dec in each side on every other round a total of 4 times and then on every round a total of 6-7-8 times = 10-10-12 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Hvordan forstås “ slå om mellem 2 masker” ? Jeg følger opskrift 131-44

Loly Aguilar 15.06.2017 - 12:04:

Es normal que me quede una vuelta de más en el diagrama M2 al comenzar con el talón gracias

Es mortal que me quede una vuelta de más en el diagrama M2 al comenzar el talón gracias

Hola Loly, no es nada extraño. Los centímetros no son más que aproximaciones. Por ello, hay que guiarse más por el diagrama que por los centímetros en sí.

Wunderschöne! Can´t wait! I had white socks much like this when I was a child but haven´t found same pattern later. And now finally I see it again!
