GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.
GARTER ST (in the round): K 1 round, P 1 round.
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 48-52-52 (56-56) sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Work rib, K1/P1 – round beg mid back. When piece measures 4-5-5 (5-6) cm K3 tog (= K1, P1, K1) mid back, work 4 rounds rib, then P3 tog (= P1, K1, P1) mid back = 44-48-48 (52-52) sts. Continue in rib. When piece measures 10-11-12 (13-14) cm change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. K 1 round AT THE SAME TIME dec 7 sts evenly = 37-41-41 (45-45) sts.
Now slip the first 14-15-15 (16-16) sts on a stitch holder, keep the next 9-11-11 (13-13) sts on needle (= mid upper foot) and slip the remaining 14-15-15 (16-16) sts on a stitch holder.
Continue as follows back and forth on 9-11-11 (13-13) sts on upper foot: K 2 rows starting from RS.
Then continue like this:
1 garter st, 1-2-2 (3-3) stocking sts, M.1 (= 5 sts), 1-2-2 (3-3) stocking sts and 1 garter st.
Continue in pattern like this -
NOTE: in SIZE 1/3 months and 6/9 months work 2 vertical repeats of M.1, in SIZE 12/18 months and 2 years work 3 vertical repeats and in SIZE 3/4 years work 4 vertical repeats.

When piece on upper foot measures 3.5-4-5 (6.5-7.5) cm – adjust to after at least 2 rows stocking st after the last repeat of M.1 - pick up 8-9-11 (14-16) sts each side of upper piece and slip sts from stitch holders back on needle = 53-59-63 (73-77) sts.
Continue in garter st on all sts in the round for 1.5-2-2.5 (3-3.5) cm, then P 1 round. Cast off all sts except the middle 9-11-11 (13-13) at front of bootee. Work garter st for 9-10-11 (13-15) cm on these sts for sole.
Cast off and sew sole to the bootee – sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

Liebes Team, Ich hänge an folgender Stelle fest: mit mindestens 2 R. glatt nach dem 1. Rapport in M1 auf beiden Seiten des Fussrückens je 8-9-11 (14-16) M. aufnehmen Ich verstehe nicht, was ich nun stricken soll? Soll ich mit einem neuen Faxen re und li die neuen Maschen aufnehmen oder soll ich 2 reihen re stricken?? Vielen lieben dank

Den oberen Teil (Fußrücken) müssen Sie so weit stricken, dass mindestens 2 R glatt re nach dem Muster gestrickt wurden. Erst dann fassen Sie die M rechts und links auf und legen dazwischen die stillgelegten M zurück auf die Nadel.

Förstår inte storlekarna riktigt... 0/3 mån med en fotlängd på 10 cm? Blir ju jättestort!!

Hanne Breivik 01.02.2013 - 16:52:

Rillen som skal være mellom vrangborden og overstykket M.1. mangler i oppskriften.

DROPS Design 12.03.2013 kl. 21:36:

Det havde du helt ret i. Vi har rettet opskriften. Tak.

Hanne Overby 17.06.2012 - 20:28:

I Opskriften savner jeg retstrik før mønstret på oversiden af foden. Tak på forhånd for hjælp. Venlig hilsen Hanne Overby.

DROPS Design 28.12.2012 kl. 10:50:

Det er med i mønstret. Se mit svar herunder.

Hanne Overby 30.05.2012 - 20:05:

Der har vist sig at mangle pindene med retstrikning før mønsteret ovenpå foden. det ville være dejligt, om de kunne komme med i opskriften.Søde babysokker !

DROPS Design 28.12.2012 kl. 10:50:

De er med i mønstret, det er den retstrikning som kommer efter at der er strikket M.1 og der tages m op på hver side af overstykket.
