Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
To avoid hole in the middle beg with this technique:
Hold yarn end in the left hand and make a loop around left index finger (from left to right). Hold the loop with left thumb and index finger. * Insert hook through loop, get the yarn from ball, pull thread through loop, make 1 YO on hook and pull YO through st on hook = 1 dc *, repeat from *-* until there are 7 dc in loop, finish with 1 sl st in first dc. Continue as explained in pattern – AT THE SAME TIME pull yarn end so that loop is tighten tog and the hole disappears.

On every dc round replace first dc with 1 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in first ch.
On every tr round replace first tr with 3 ch.
Finish round with 1 sl st in third ch.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

Work 2 tr in 1 tr.

Dec 1 st as follows – beg 2 dc before marker:
Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook = 1 st dec.

Worked from toe and up to leg.

Work a magic circle – see explanation above = 7 dc in circle. READ CROCHET INFO! Work 2 dc in every dc = 14 dc. Insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 7th st. Then work in the round with 1 dc in each dc, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 dc on each side of each marker – READ INCREASE TIP, repeat inc every round 9-10-11 more times (10-11-12 inc in total) = 54-58-62 dc. Then work A.1 over the first 31-37-37 dc on round, work tr in the last 23-21-25 dc. Then work in the round with tr under foot and A.1 over the 31-37-37 tr on top of foot. When piece measures 9-11-14 cm, inc 1 tr on each side of the 31-37-37 sts on top of foot, repeat inc every round 11-12-12 more times (12-13-13 inc in total) = 47-47-51 tr + A.1. Continue until piece measures 17-19-22 cm from toe. Then work as follows – Work 35-35-41 ch, skip the first 31-37-37 sts on top of foot, work 1 dc in each of the next 47-47-51 tr, work 1 dc in each of the 35-35-41 ch = 82-82-92 dc. Insert 2 markers in the piece, 3-3-2 dc in dc from foot (there should be 41-41-46 dc between markers). Continue in the round with 1 dc in every dc, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st on each side of each marker (= 4 dec dc per round), repeat dec every round 17-17-17 more times (= 18 dec in total) = 10-10-20 dc remain on round. Turn the sock inside out, place sts under heel double and work tog with 1 sl st through every st in both layers. Fasten off.

Beg working A.1 in the 31-37-37 sts mid front on foot, now continue with A.1 over the 35-35-41 sts from ch-space. Continue with A.1 over all sts, do not work the last tr in last repetition, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round. Continue this pattern until leg measures 14-15-16 cm. Work 1 round with A.2 over A.1. Fasten off.

Waar moet ik bij de hiel de markeerders plaatsen en welke steken moet ik dan minderen voor en na de markeerder

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 18:03:

Dag Riet,

Als je de markeerders plaatst heb je 82-82-92 stokjes in totaal. Je plaatst ze aan beide zijen zodat er evenveel stokjes tussen beide markeerders zit, en je plaatst ze 3-3-2 stokjes vanaf de voet (dus vanaf waar de opening zit)

Carla De Kok 26.01.2018 - 20:57:

Vanaf toer 2 moeten er 2 markeerders geplaatst worden, 1 bij het begin en 1 na de 7e steek. Betekent dat dan dat ik steek 7 en 8 moet meerderen, of 6 en 8?

DROPS Design 28.01.2018 kl. 19:12:

Hoi Carla, Je meerdert dan in steek 6 en 8, de markeerder blijft steeds op dezelfde plek en je meerdert steeds voor en na de markeerder.

Bonjour. J'ai crocheté cette paire en coloris écru et j'aime beaucoup la forme du talon. A voir sur mon blog.

Karin Döschner 08.01.2017 - 21:36:

Hallo Ihr Lieben, habe die 'Anleitung zu Drops 153-25 nicht ganz verstanden. Da steht bei der spitze -11. Zeile u.a.," 3-3-2 fM neben den fM des Fußes" - verstehe ich leider nicht neben welchen fM??? sollen die fM zusätzlich aufgenommen werden?? Danke für Ihre Hilfe

DROPS Design 09.01.2017 kl. 09:31:

Liebe Frau Döschner, Sie Sollen 2 Markierer einsetzen, so daß es 41-41-45 fM zwischen den Markierer gibt, dh 3-3-2 fM jederseits dem Fuß. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Shahla 01.04.2015 - 09:44:

Hej, er det muligt at lave en vido for denne opskrift? Jeg er ikke så god til at hækle og prøvede at kigge til de andre videos som kunne hjælpe mig. Men jeg får stadig fejl. I den 3. Omgang er mine udtagning ikke korrekte. Skal ikke alle udtagningers være over for hinanden? Hvis ja, mine øges med en fm mellem udtagning i hver omgang.

DROPS Design 29.04.2015 kl. 14:35:

Hej Shahla. Vi har sat det paa önskelisten. Desvaerre kan jeg ikke sige noget om hvor lang ventetid der er.

Adriana 29.03.2014 - 23:36:

Al inicio del patrón cuando se comienza a hacer los aumentos me podrían especificar cuantos puntos finales son por vuelta ya que despues de que se tienen 14 p.b no se especifica

DROPS Design 31.03.2014 kl. 10:02:

Hola Adriana. Los aum se trabajan a ambos lados de los dos MP (= 4 pts aum por vta). Los aum se repiten un total de 10-11-12 vcs = 54-58-62 p.b.

Michaela 17.12.2013 - 20:14:

Mała Gosia 12.12.2013 - 11:41:
