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

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 64-64-68 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with ruby red. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 4-4-8 sts evenly = 60-60-60 sts. Then continue pattern according to diagram A.1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME on round marked with arrow A in diagram, dec 3 sts evenly = 57 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow B in diagram, dec 1 st = 56 sts.
When A.1 has been worked, piece measures approx. 22 cm. Continue in the round in stocking st with grey – AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round dec 8-4-0 sts evenly = 48-52-56 sts.
When piece measures 23-24-25 cm, keep the first 12-13-14 sts on needle for heel, slip the next 24-26-28 sts on 1 stitch holder (= mid upper foot - NOTE: Work sts before slipping them on stitch holder) and keep the last 12-13-14 sts on needle for heel. Continue in stocking st back and forth over the 24-26-28 heel sts for 5-5½-6 cm. Insert 1 marker in mid of row, MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above. After heel dec, pick up 11-12-13 sts along each side of heel and slip the 24-26-28 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 58-64-68 sts. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 24-26-28 sts on top of foot. Continue in stocking st in the round while AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows: K the 2 last sts BEFORE marker on top of foot tog and K the first 2 sts AFTER marker on top of foot twisted tog. Repeat dec every other round 6-7-7 more times (= 7-8-8 times in total) = 44-48-52 sts. Remove the 2 markers.
When piece measures 18-20-22 cm from marker on heel (= approx. 4-4-5 cm remain), insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 22-24-26 sts both on upper foot and under foot. Continue working with grey while AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of both markers - SEE DECREASE TIP! Repeat dec every other round 3-3-4 more times (= 4-4-5 times in total) and then every round 5-6-6 times = 8 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Hej... om det nu har visat sig att beskrivningen är felaktig varför kan ni inte göra om den då så att det stämmer utan att flera måste jävlas med detta... Jag har väldigt svårt att tänka och göra om ett mönster så jag blev besviken när det inte fungerade....

Corine 31.10.2017 - 05:58:

Hi i think there is a mistake in the diagram or in the picture in the last part where you do the small white dots in the grey sock. The diagram shows seven (4before and 3after) grey st between every white dot whereas the photo shows only three.

Dear Corine, thanks for your feedback, it seems you are right, diagram will be edited. Happy knitting!

Hei, ser at dere ikke ønsker å rette opp feilen på rad 15-17 men hadde det ikke vært en ide å skrive det i oppskriften at det ikke stemmer. Det hadde iallefall spart meg for mye hodebry!

Geli 05.01.2016 - 09:25:

Hallo zusammen, in der Anleitung ist ein Fehler. Bei Größe 38/40 nimmt man nach der Fersenabnahme für den Spickel nicht insgesamt 8 x 2 Maschen ab, sondern nur 4 x, um auf 48 Maschen insgesamt zu kommen. Bei 8 Abnahmen blieben nur noch 32 Maschen übrig. Ansonsten ist das eine tolle Anleitung, die Socken sind wunderbar weich und warm. Ich stricke sie ohne Muster einfach unifarben und brauche für Größe 38/40 somit nur 150g insgesamt. Vielen Dank für die tolle Anleitung!

Hei! Er veldig skuffet over at dere ikke har endret oppskriften, enda dere har kjent til feilen på rad 14 og videre, i over to år!!!! Å bruke tid på å telle og rekke opp, telle og rekke opp, bruke tid på å regne, søke opp oppskriften på nytt, være frustrert og nå til slutt irritert, det er ikke noe jeg gidder, og tror det er flere enn meg som ikke gidder det. Hvis dere ikke er interessert i og rette på oppskriften, skriv i alle fall en merknad!

Hei! Mallipiirroksen A1 silmukat eivät täsmää. Rivillä 14 tulee ongelma, sillä mallipiirros on piirretty 16 silmukalle, mutta puikolla on 15 silmukkaa. Missä virhe?

DROPS Design 28.10.2015 kl. 15:50:

Hei! Ensimmäisten kavennusten jälkeen, työssä on jäljellä 57 s. Kuvion mallikerta on 3 s, joten mallikertoja tulee kerroksella tasan 19 kpl.

Stine Mari 06.10.2015 - 23:10:

Hei! Ser som flere her at mønsteret ikke stemmer overens med maskeantallet på radene 14-15-16... Jeg var nå godt igang med å strikke disse sokkene, så det er veldig synd at dere ikke endrer oppskriften når så mange har påpekt den samme feilen.. Synd hvis man må lese igjennom kommentarene på oppskriftene før man begynner... Kan dere endre oppskriften slik at det stemmer som det skal? :)

DROPS Design 12.10.2015 kl. 15:51:

Hej Stine, der vil ikke blive lavet en rettelse på række 14-15-16, det gør ikke noget at der vil blive 2 ens "ruder" bagpå sokken. God fornøjelse!

Carina 12.11.2014 - 18:37:

Stämmer detta mönster?

DROPS Design 13.11.2014 kl. 11:22:

Hej Carina. Vi kan kontrollere mönstret, hvis du angiver hvor du har problemer og hvilken str du strikker.

Carina 12.09.2014 - 10:01:

Hej! Jag är inte riktigt nöjd med resultatet, det blev inte så där tajt över vristen och diagrammet tror jag var fel på två ställen på varv 14,15,16 och varv 50 eller så tolkar jag det fel. Mönstret var luddigt att läsa man kunde göra det enklare. Jag har vart noga med att se till att jag har rätt antal maskor osv. Jag har stickat storlek 35/37 men det blir som sagt för stort över vristen.

Margot 09.12.2013 - 09:10:

Hej Marianne. Du ska ha 15 "bågar" och 5 rosor.15x4=60, 5x12=60.Så mönstret är rätt, men klantigt ritat.
