--------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 66-66-72 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with red Fabel. K 1 round, then work 4 rounds rib = K 1/P 1. Then work diagram M.1 over all sts. When diagram M.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work diagram M.2 while AT THE SAME TIME adjusting no of sts to 72 in all sizes on first round in diagram M.2. When diagram M.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work diagram M.3 while AT THE SAME TIME adjusting no of sts to 66-72-72 on first round in diagram M.3.
When M.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, work 1 round with off white over all sts. Continue to work as follows: Diagram M.4A (= 3 sts), diagram M.4B (= 25-31-31 sts), diagram M.4C (= 3 sts), diagram M.5 (= 35 sts).
NOTE! On round 8 and 16, dec 1 st on each side of diagram M.5 as shown in diagram = 62-68-68 sts. When diagram M.5 has been worked 1 time vertically, slip 31-37-37 sts (= diagrams M.4A, B and C) on a stitch holder = 31 sts for heel.
Work diagram M.6 over heel sts for 5-5½-6 cm, insert a marker, then decrease for heel - see HEEL DECREASE – continue pattern according to diagram M.6.
After heel decrease, knit up 12-13-14 sts on each side of heel (knit up alternately with red and off white to fit diagram M.6) and slip the 31-37-37 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 70-78-80 sts. Continue the 31-37-37 sts on top of foot in diagram M.4 as before, work sts under foot in diagram M.6. AT THE SAME TIME dec on each side of diagram M.4 (sts on top of foot). K the 2 sts before diagram M.4A tog and K the 2 sts after diagram M.4C twisted tog (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front), repeat dec every other round a total of 6 times = 58-66-68 sts. Continue diagrams M.4 and M.6 until piece measures 17-18-21 cm from marker on heel (= 5-6-6 cm remain). Continue to work as follows: Diagram M.4A, diagram M.6 over the next 25-31-31 sts, diagram M.4C, diagram M.6 over the next 27-29-31 sts. AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of diagram M.4A/C. Dec as follows before diagram M.4A/C: K the last 2 sts tog. Dec as follows after diagram M.4A/C: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso. Repeat dec every other round a total of 6-9-9 times and then every round a total of 4-1-1 times = 18-26-28 sts remain on needle. On next round, K all sts tog 2 by 2 with red = 9-13-14 sts. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Er det en fejl eller. Sidder nu med 58m, og skal fortsætte med mønster således: m4a,m6 over de næste 25m og m4c,m6 over de næste 27m ? det tilsammen giver kun 52m, diff på 6m, hvad med dem ?

DROPS Design 01.12.2016 kl. 15:58:

Hej Jannie. M.4A og C er begge 3 masker: 3+25(=M.6)+3+27(=M.6) = 58 m i alt

I just purchased Dale of Norway Heilo yarn (22 sts = 10 cm on US 3 or 4) and just started knitting the DROPS extra 0-789 socks. However, casting on 66 for a medium-sized woman's foot and then increasing to 72 sts make this sock huge! Comparing this to several other sock patterns I have, 72 sts (even 66) seems like way too many. Help?

DROPS Design 07.03.2016 kl. 10:52:

Dear Mrs Flom, This pattern has been written for DROPS Fabel with a tension of 24 sts x 32 rows, remember to check your tension - to get the best results we can only highly recommand to use original yarn. Happy knitting!

Ich verstehe leider nicht, wie man M6 stricken muss, wenn es nicht rund gestrickt wird. Ich stecke fest bei der Anweisung "M6 über die Fersenmaschen stricken". Hier muss ich doch, um Vorder- und rückreihe zu stricken jeweils die Arbeit wenden und die Rückreihe folglich links stricken, oder? Ich verstehe nicht, wie man mit zwei Fäden links strickt, so dass es trotzdem auf der Vorderseite der Arbeit glatt rechts erscheint. Danke für Ihre Hilfe!

DROPS Design 07.10.2014 kl. 14:06:

Ja genau, Sie stricken die Rück-R links. Dabei behalten Sie den Faden, den Sie gerade nicht benötigen und daher mitführen müssen, VOR der Arbeit, also auf genau derselben Seite wie vorher auch, dann bleibt die Arbeit ja auf der Vorderseite "fadenfrei". Im "Fair-Isle"-Video unter "Videos" oben im Kopf neben dem Foto können Sie sich das auch noch mal anschauen.

Patroon 0-789 staat na mindering van78 st naar 66 dan breien tot lengte van18 cm dan minderen voor de tenen maar dan zijn er nog maar totaal 60 st over waar moeten die dan gemindert worden of is dit een druk fout

DROPS Design 19.12.2012 kl. 13:11:

Waar komen de 60 st vandaan? Je had 78 st, mindert 6 keer 2 st (= 12) volgens de beschrijving en hebt dan 66 st op de nld. Dan brei je door tot een lengte van 18 cm vanaf de hiel. Je breit dan door volgens M.4A/C en M6 en mindert nu voor de tenen zoals beschreven.

The charts are corrected. Thank you for your help.

Sabine 13.12.2011 - 15:13:

Im Diagramm 4b muss in der 8. Reihe die 24 Masche rot sein. In M5 muss in der 17. Reihe die 6. Masche weiß sein. 4A, 4B und 4C ergeben mE den Fußrücken, und nicht die Fersenmaschen.

Mona Krogstrup Olsen 13.12.2011 - 10:08:

Fin opskrift - der er dog 1 fejl i diagram 4B= række 8 maske nr. 24 skal være rød. Ligeledes en fejl i diagram 5= række 17 maske nr. 6 skal være natur og så er det meget pænere hvis sidste række i m. 5 er som i m.6

DROPS Design 06.12.2011 - 11:38:

Now the chart is in place.
