GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

KNITTING TIP: When turning mid piece, slip first st. Tighten thread and continue as before. This is done to avoid holes in the transitions.

ASSEMBLY TIP: The toes is tightened tog, therefore insert 1 thread in front loop of outermost st towards the toe and let this follows upwards when working. Use this thread to tighten the toe tog at the end.
----------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
Remember the knitting tension! The sock is worked back and forth from mid under foot, over the instep and finished mid under foot. The entire sock is worked in GARTER ST - see explanation above. The sock is worked with short rows over the toe as follows:
Row 1: Work all sts.
Row 2: Work all sts.
Row 3: Work until 6-8-10 sts remain, turn - READ KNITTING TIP.
Row 4: Work back.
Repeat these 4 rows until finished measurements.

Cast on 60-67-74 sts on needles size 5 mm with 1 thread Big Fabel or 2 threads Fabel. First work an elevation in the back as follows:
Work 10 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 9 sts.
Work 15 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 14 sts.
Work 20 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 19 sts.
Size 40/42: Work 25 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 24 sts.
All sizes: Work 4 rows over all sts (remember short rows towards the toe - i.e. in the opposite side of elevation). READ ASSEMBLY TIP!

Now dec for heel as follows: Insert a marker in the 23rd-27th-30th st (from the side with elevation). Dec 1 st on each side of st with marker every other row a total of 7 times = 46-53-60 sts. Work in garter st until piece measures 8-10-12 cm from last dec.
Then inc for heel as follows: Insert a marker in the 16th-20th-23rd st (from the side with elevation). Inc 1 st on each side of st with marker every other row a total of 7 times = 60-67-74 sts. Work 4 rows over all sts.
Then work an elevation in the back as follows:
Size 40/42: Work 25 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 24 sts.
All sizes: Work 20 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 19 sts.
Work 15 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 14 sts.
Work 10 sts, turn, slip 1 st as if to K, work 9 sts.
Slip all sts on a stitch holder. Knit another sock.

LEG:
Cast on 10 new sts on row and knit up 40-44-50 sts from RS along the upper edge of sock (short side with elevations) = 50-54-60 sts. Work in garter st for 10 cm, cast off. On the other sock work as follows: Knit up 40-44-50 sts from RS along upper edge of sock (short side with elevations) and cast on 10 sts at the end of row = 50-54-60 sts. Work in garter st for 10 cm, cast off.

Hej, jeg har brug for hjælp til at forstå denne opskrift. Jeg har slået 60 m op på p 5, så langt så godt, men hvad skal jeg så - skal der startes med vende pinde med det samme ?

DROPS Design 26.01.2016 kl. 16:10:

Hej Jette, ja du fortsætte ifølge opskriften; Strik 10 m vend osv... God fornøjelse!

Selam 16.12.2014 - 22:04:

Thanks for the previous response. Im not sure how the leg is worked, could you please explain 10 new St and pick up 40( for example) Not sure where these 40 st are coming from? Thanks

DROPS Design 17.12.2014 kl. 08:42:

Dear Selam, the text under "leg" refers to the edge worked around the top of the sock, ie you first cast on 10 sts, then pick up 40 sts (in 1st size) along the upper edge of socks (side where you previously worked the first and last short rows for elevation on back) and work 10 cm garter sts over these 50 sts (in 1st size). The 10 sts are the flap that will be sewn with buttons. Happy knitting!

Selam 14.12.2014 - 14:15:

Hi when do i start with ..."remember short rows towards the toe - i.e. in the opposite side of elevation"? thanks

DROPS Design 14.12.2014 kl. 16:38:

Dear Selam, that's correct, the short rows towards the toe are on the opposite side of short rows worked at very beg of sock (and worked again at the end of socks). Happy knitting!

Liebes Drops-Team, diese Socke gefällt mir sehr gut, würde Sie aber gerne in einem Sockenwollgarn stricken und mit dünneren Nadeln. Habt Ihr eine Anleitung für z.B. Drops Delight ? Oder wie kann ich es mir selbst umrechnen ? Liebe Grüße von einem großen Garnstudio - Drops Fan Petra aus Dresden

DROPS Design 25.11.2013 kl. 07:49:

Liebe Petra, das Modell ist nicht ganz einfach umzurechnen. Alle Anleitungen für dünnere Sockenwolle (DROPS Fabel oder Delight) finden Sie in unserer Musterdatenbank.

Boa tarde, achei maravilhosa só que tenho dúvidas pois diminui para o calcanhar e depois aumenta estou fazendo e não entendo como costurar, gostaria de ver um desenho e a explicação do que fazer. obrigada.

DROPS Design 17.10.2012 kl. 16:38:

Este modelo não tem esquema porque como é tricotado no sentido do cumprimento da meia, a costura é mais fácil. Os aumentos são para dar melhor forma para o calcanhar da meia. Depois, faz-se uma única costura lateral. Pense em um rectângulo com uma pequena curva a meio (forma para o calcanhar) e será mais fácil imaginar como unir esse rectângulo com uma costura na lateral. Bom tricô!

Super interessante Struktur!

Kiril 12.07.2012 - 01:05:

Jeg har ett spm vedrørende den økingen til hel. Jeg får aldri dette til å bli pent. Det blir et hull der hvor jeg snur.. hva er hemmeligheten for å få dette til å se pent ut? Setter stor pris på alle tilbakemeldinger.

Corinna 09.07.2012 - 19:36:

Super Socken - ausgefallen und witzig :-)

Helle 06.07.2012 - 13:12:

Jeg har kontaktet Garnstudio, og opskriften er nu kommet på dansk også :)

Karin 03.07.2012 - 22:41:
