SOCK:
Cast on 72-76-80 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with colour no 912. K 2 rounds. Continue to work rib as follows: * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-*. When rib measures 4 cm, K 1 round while at the same time dec 8 sts evenly = 64-68-72 sts. Distribute sts on 4 double pointed needles = 16-17-18 sts on every needle. Then work in stocking st and displacement - see explanation above. When piece measures 10 cm, dec 1 st in every stripe from RS – dec by working the last 2 sts on every double pointed needle K tog (= 4 dec on 1 round). Adjust so that dec are done on 3rd or 5th row in pattern. Repeat dec when piece measures 15 and 20 cm = 52-56-60 sts (= 13-14-15 sts on every double pointed needle). When piece measures 23-24-25 cm, work a loose strand over the first 26-28-30 sts, sts on each side of this strand are used for heel later. On next row continue pattern as before (cut the yarn on the first 2 double pointed needles). Continue with displacement until piece measures 12-13-15½ cm from the loose strand (= approx. 5 cm remain). Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 26-28-30 sts on top of foot and 26-28-30 sts under foot - adjust so that toe fits with strand for heel. Continue working stocking st over all sts and in the round on needle with colour no 912 while AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of the markers. Dec as follows before 1 K st and marker: K 2 tog. Dec as follows after marker and 1 K st: K 2 twisted tog. Dec like this in each side on every other round a total of 7 times and then on every round a total of 3 times = 12-16-20 sts remain on needle. On next round work all sts tog 2 by 2. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.


HEEL:
Pull out the loose strand and distribute sts from each side of strand on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm = 52-56-60 sts. Beg in the side and work as follows with colour no 912 (soft chocolate): Work over 26-28-30 sts under heel, pick up 2 new sts in the side, work over the 26-28-30 sts on the back of heel and pick up 2 new sts in the side = 56-60-64 sts. Insert 1 marker between the 2 new sts in each side. Work in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side – Read DECREASE TIP! - repeat dec every other round a total of 9-10-11 times = 20 sts remain on needle. Work 1 round over all sts. Cast off. Sew tog heel with grafting/kitchener sts, st against st in cast-off edge. Heel measures 5-6-6½ cm in each side. Knit another sock the same way.

Est-ce que je pourrais faire un talon double régulier à la place du vôtre (est-ce un talon appelé Afterthought) car je ne pense pas réussir à le faire, j'ai bien lu les explications et regardé vidéo et ne m'y retrouve pas, c'est dommage j'aurais appris nouvelle technique. Merci

DROPS Design 07.08.2019 kl. 10:37:

Bonjour Mme St-Pierre, je pense que pour ce type de modèle, le talon tricoté à la fin reste la meilleure alternative pour ne pas "déformer" le modèle. Quand vous arrivez au talon, tricotez les mailles du talon avec un fil d'une autre couleur et continuez comme avant. Quand la chaussette est terminée, retirez délicatement le fil, relevez les mailles de chaque côté (le rang précédent + le rang suivant) et tricotez le talon en rond en diminuant comme indiqué. Bon tricot!

Gisèle St-Pierre 04.08.2019 - 23:54:

Auriez-vous une autre vidéo pour faire talon sur fil perdu avec fils couleurs unies peut-être plus facile à comprendre je fais le patron ci-haut 149/22 et ça ne m'aide pas vu le patron utilisé dans vidéo et couleurs? Merci

DROPS Design 05.08.2019 kl. 08:16:

Bonjour Gisele! Regardez le video suivant: ICI. Bon tricot!

Madame Gisèle St-Pierre 27.07.2019 - 15:34:

Peut-on faire ce modèle sur aiguille circulaire?

DROPS Design 27.07.2019 kl. 15:52:

Bonjour Gisele! Sur les courtes peut-etre. Mais je vous conseille les aiguilles double pointes parce qu'on a pas beaucoup de mailles. Bon tricot!

Un très beau tricot original plein de couleurs

Murielle Wittmer 03.11.2018 - 23:26:

Bonsoir, je ne comprends pas le terme: \" croiser le fil avec la couleur suivante\"...pouvez vous m\'aider ??? je rêve de faire ce projet depuis très longtemps, je pense m\'y mettre dés maintenant mais je ne comprends pas...

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 10:48:

Bonjour Mme Wittmer, on va procéder comme pour du jacquard - cf vidéo - autrement dit on croise les fils au début de chaque bande pour que les mailles des rayures soient bien attachées entre elles sans qu'il y ait de trou. Bon tricot!

Hallo,ich habe ein Problem bei der Zunahme in der 2.Reihe. bei mir entsteht immer ein loch.habe verschiedene Varianten ausprobiert.was könnt ihr mir noch anbieten wie ich es am besten mache? Danke

DROPS Design 01.11.2018 kl. 14:19:

Liebe Ines, versuchen Sie aus der Masche der Vorreihe oder aus dem Querfaden. Ihr DROPS Laden kann sicher Ihnen noch mehr weiterhelfen - auch telefonisch oder per Email. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Mimi Routh 11.02.2018 - 01:10:

Extremely fiddly and tiresome. I am an excellent knitter! As written, the damned socks are two inches too short! I will finish them in my own design!

M. ZUidgeest 04.09.2017 - 19:43:

At the and of row 2 the pattern says (in dutch) neem 1 st op – neem daarvoor de laatste st van breinld zonder knop 4 van de vorige nld op en zet deze op breinld zonder knop 1. Keer. Pick up 1 stitch by taking the last stitch of dpn 4 and place it onto dpn 1. It doesn't say decrease. Where do I have to pick up the extra stitch?

Carol Williamson 19.04.2017 - 00:28:

Sorry, the question was not answered. The instructions for row 3 say "K 2 together." Does this not mean that two stitches become one? Or does "pick up" have a different meaning?

DROPS Design 19.04.2017 kl. 08:33:

Dear Carol, The last instruction for row 2 says pick up a stitch in the last stitch, so a new stitch should be made there. After turning the piece, this stitch which was just picked up, should be knitted together with the first stitch, so there is no hole where the piece is turned. I hope this helped. Happy Knitting!

J'adore, ces chaussettes sont magnifiques. Malheureusement, je ne suis pas assez bonne tricoteuse pour les réaliser, quel dommage !
