There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
After last sc on the round, continue to next round with 1 sc in next sc (= first sc from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last sc and first sc on the round, move the marker upwards.

Replace first sc at beg of every sc row with 1 ch. Finish every row with 1 sl st in ch from beg of previous row. Replace first dc at beg of every dc round with 3 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch.

Work 1 sc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next sc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook = 1 sc dec.

Work as sc but backwards. I.e. crochet around from left to right

See diagram A.1.

Piece is worked in the round from toe and back to instep, then work back and forth from mid back on heel. Work the leg on sock in the round at the end.

Work 4 ch on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Nepal and form 1 ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: Work 6-6-5 sc in ch-ring - READ WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE.
ROUND 2: Work 2 sc in every sc = 12-12-10 sc.
ROUND 3 (and then every other round): Work 1 sc in every sc.
ROUND 4: * 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times in total = 18-18-15 sc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 6: * 1 sc in each of the first 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times in total = 24-24-20 sc.
ROUND 8: * 1 sc in each of the first 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times in total = 30-30-25 sc.
ROUND 10: * 1 sc in each of the first 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times in total = 36-36-30 sc. Inc are now done in size 5/6½ (EU35/37).
SIZE 7½/9 - 9½/10½ (EU38/40 - 41/43):
ROUND 12: * 1 sc in each of the first 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 6-5 times in total = 42-35 sc. Inc are now done in size 38/40.
SIZE 9½/10½ (EU 41/43):
ROUND 14: * 1 sc in each of the first 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 40 sc.
ROUND 16: * 1 sc in each of the first 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 45 sc. Inc are now done in size 41/43.

= 36-42-45 sc on round. Work in the round with 1 dc in every sc - READ CROCHET INFO, then work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 14-16-18 cm / 5½"-6 1/4"-7". Then work sc back and forth over the first 24-30-32 sc (i.e. do not work over the last 12-12-13 dc on round). When sock measures 20-22-25 cm / 8"-8 3/4"-9 3/4" (i.e. approx. 6-6-7 cm / 2½"-2½"-2 3/4" from where it is divided), insert 1 marker in the middle of piece (= 12-15-16 sc on each side of marker). On next row dec 1 sc on each side of marker, i.e. beg 2 sts before marker and work the next 4 sc tog 2 by 2 – READ DECREASE TIP (= 2 sc dec). Work 1 row without dec. Repeat dec on next row (= 2 sc dec) = 20-26-28 sts remain on row. Work 1 row without dec, sock now measures approx. 22-24-27 cm / 8¾''-9½''-10½'' from toe to heel.

Turn the sock inside out, place it double and work tog the back from WS with a row of sl sts through both layers. Fasten off.

Now work in the round from seam mid back. Insert 1 marker in the piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Now work over sc-rows on heel and dc over foot as follows: Work 15-18-20 dc evenly over sc-row until dc on foot, 1 dc in every dc over foot, 15-18-21 dc evenly over sc-rows until mid back = 42-48-54 dc. Then work A.1 7-8-9 times in width. Ch-spaces will displace 2 dc on every round. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.z until piece measures 20 cm / 8''.
Then work REVERSE CROCHET - see explanation above, 1 round over all sts. Fasten off.

Work another sock the same way.

I mönstret står det att man ska virka A.1 8 ggr på bredden. Sen står det att när man virlat A.1 en gång på höjden (vilket blir 1 varv) så ska man fortsätta med att bara virka A.z tills det mäter 20 cm. Hur ska man då göra? Förstår jag mönstret fel? Jag kan ju inte virka A.1 8 ggr när jag efter 1 varv bara ska virka A.z. Hur ska jag göra?

Hej Kajsa. A.1 hekles 8 gange i bredden og det samme gaelder saa for A.z. Du haekler A.1 1 gang i höjden og herefter gentager du A.z (8 gangen i bredden) og gentager i höjden til det maaler 20 cm.
