See diagram A-1. Diagram shows all rows seen from RS.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 76 sts in all sizes on double pointed needles size 3 mm with Alaska. Work rib = K 1/P 1 for 6 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm and continue as follows: Rib as before over the first 5 sts, then diagram A-1 (= 20 sts = mid on top of foot), then work rib as before over the next 18 sts, then work A-1 again (= 20 sts = mid back of heel), and work the remaining 13 sts in rib as before. Continue like this until piece measures 30 cm in total. Now keep the first 29 sts on needle (= mid on top of foot) and slip the remaining 47 sts on a stitch holder. Insert a marker. Continue with pattern and rib as before over sts on needle (= middle piece) - AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row cast on 1 new st in each side (= edge st, this is worked K on all rows) = 31 sts. When piece measures 8-10-12 cm from marker, cast off 1 edge st in each side = 29 sts. Switch to circular needle. Then slip the sts from stitch holder back on needle and knit up 20-24-28 sts on each side of middle piece inside 1 edge st = 116-124-132 sts in total on needle. Continue in the round with pattern as before and rib over the remaining sts for 2 cm. Then work in stocking st over all sts – AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round, dec 6 sts evenly over both diagrams A-1 = 104-112-120 sts. Insert 1 marker mid front on toe and 1 marker mid back on heel. On next round, K 2 tog before both markers and K 2 twisted tog after both markers (= 4 sts dec), repeat dec every other round until section in stocking st measures 3-3-4 cm, loosely cast off.
Sew seam mid under foot edge to edge in cast off edge to avoid a chunky seam to walk on.


= K from RS, P from WS
= P from RS, K from WS
= slip 4 sts on cable needle in front of piece, P 1, K 1, P 1, K 1, then P 1, K 1, P 1 and K 1 from cable needle
= slip 4 sts on cable needle behind piece, P 1, K 1, P 1, K 1, then P 1, K 1, P 1 and K 1 from cable needle

Hallo :) Ich habe dieses paar Socken gestrickt und habe jetzt das Problem die Sohle zusammenzunähen mit einem maschenstich. Könnt ihr wohl ein Video produzieren indem ihr das zeigt, wie ihr die Sohle zusammen nehmt?

Gucken Sie mal bei den Technikvideos unter "Fertigstellen: Maschenstich", dort wird der Maschenstich erklärt. Die Abkettkante bildet ja die untere Mitte des Sockens, d.h. Abkettkante wird doppelt gelegt und aneinander genäht.

Antwort siehe oben! :-)

Wunderschöne Socken, die einfach und schnell zu stricken sind. Leider ist der Schaft bei "normalen" Beinen etwas weit. Vielleicht sollte man etwas weniger Maschen aufnehmen.

J'aimerais avoir des conseils combien e mailles par aiguilleset je ne comprends pas vraiment le diagrame merci pour une repons j'aimerais egalement l'adresse d'1 forum d'entraide merci cordialement evelyne

DROPS Design 09.02.2013 kl. 11:01:

Bonjour Evelyne, si vous tricotez avec un jeu de 5 aiguilles, montez 19 m par aiguilles x 3 aiguilles = 76 m. Dans le diagramme, 1 case = 1 m x 1 rang, ce sont des côtes 1/1 avec des torsades tous les 8 rangs. Pour toute aide complémentaire, n'hésitez pas à contacter votre magasin Drops ou à vous inscrire sur le forum DROPS (menu Astuces et Aide (tout en haut de la page)/ Forums puis cliquez sur Forum DROPS. Bon tricot !

Je bloque après les 30 premier rangs

DROPS Design 30.01.2013 kl. 10:32:

Bonjour Madame Welo, à 30 cm, vous continuez sur les 29 premières m, et mettez les 47 autres en attente. Vous tricotez le dessus du pied comme avant (+ 1 m de chaque côté au 1er rang, rabat à 8-10-12cm). Après avoir tricoté le dessus du pied, vous relevez à gauche le long du dessus du pied, tricotez les 47 m en attente et relevez à droite du dessus du pied et tricotez ensuite en rond, comme avant en côtes et torsades puis en jersey pour la semelle. Bon tricot !

Jag har stickat skaftet och baksidan av hälen, tagit upp maskor så att jag har 116 m. Hur ska jag fortsätta sen? Det står "fortsätt runt med mönster som förut och resår över de resterande m i 2 cm". Ska man inte göra en hälavmaskning? Resterande m? 2 cm? Kan ngn förklara? Hälsningar Anita

DROPS Design 04.12.2012 kl. 12:01:

Nej ingen klassisk hälavmaskning i denna beskrivningen, bara följ beskrivningen så får du de fina sockorna som på bilden!

Lurer på om sokkene skla strikkes på 4 pinner rundt, eller att og fram. e rikkje så god på å lese oppskrifter :)

Stephanie 08.07.2012 - 16:38:

A-1 forklaringen virket litt feil. i flettemønsteret så skal det vel være 1 r 1 vr osv, at man begynner med 1 r i flettingen. Det så bedre ut at jeg gjorde det i alle fall. herlige sokker

Josée 04.07.2012 - 02:38:

These look so cozy and warm... just the thing to slip on after playing or working in the cold.

Inger 27.06.2012 - 10:38:

Deilige sokker.
