STRIPES:
Work 1 ridge in each colour (= 2 rows K). Switch colour from RS.

KNITTING TIP:
When turning mid piece, slip 1st st. Tighten yarn and continue as before. This is done to avoid holes in the transitions.

ASSEMBLY TIP:
Toe is tightened tog, insert 1 strand in outer loops of edge sts towards the toe and let it follow piece upwards. Use this strand to tighten tog toe at the end.
--------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
Work sock back and forth from mid under foot, over instep and finish mid under foot. Work entire sock in GARTER ST - see explanation above and STRIPES - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION
TOE: On every 3rd and 4th row work short rows, i.e. every other time you work down towards toe, do not work over all sts, but turn mid piece when 10-13-16 sts remain - read KNITTING TIP.

Cast on 120-130-140 sts on needle size 2.5 mm with blue sea. First work an elevation in the back as follows: Work 12 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 11 sts. Switch colour.
Work 20 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 19 sts. Switch colour.
Work 28 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 27 sts. Switch colour.
Work 36 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 35 sts. Switch colour.
Work 44 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 43 sts. Switch colour.
Work 52 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 51 sts. Switch colour.
Size 40/42: Work 60 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 59 sts. Switch colour.

ALL SIZES: Work 6 rows over all sts (remember short rows towards the toe - i.e. in the opposite side of elevation). Read
ASSEMBLY TIP! And remember to switch colour for every ridge the rest of piece.

Now dec for heel as follows: Insert 1 marker in the 62nd-68th-72nd st (counted from side with elevation). Dec 1 st on each side of st with marker on every other row 11 times in total = 98-108-118 sts. Work in garter st until piece measures 9-11-13 cm from last dec.
Then inc for heel as follows: Insert 1 marker in the 51st-57th-61st st (counted from side with elevation). Inc 1 st on each side of st with marker on every other row 11 times in total = 120-130-140 sts. Work 6 row over all sts.
Then work an elevation in the back as follows:

Size 40/42: Work 60 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 59 sts.

ALL SIZES: Work 52 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 51 sts.
Work 44 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 43 sts.
Work 36 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 35 sts.
Work 28 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 27 sts.
Work 20 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 19 sts.
Work 12 sts, turn, slip 1 st, work 11 sts.

Knit another sock the same way.

Jeg har ikke strikket sokker før og skjønner ikke oppskriften helt. Når jeg har felt av til hæl og sitter med 118 m på to forskjellige pinner, skal jeg da begynne å strikke de 118 maskene frem og tilbake SAMMEN eller frem og tilbake hver for seg på to ulike pinner?

DROPS Design 05.04.2019 kl. 14:18:

Hei Nora. Du har 118 masker, men de er på samme pinne. Når du lager hælfelling skal du felle ved å strikke 2 masker rett sammen på hver side av merket (alså du feller dem ikke av). Dette gjentar du 11 ganger (til du har felt 22 masker totalt). Hælen vil da være en liten spiss/bul på arbeidet, men alle maskene er på samme pinne. Når du så øker igjen til hæl på den andre siden vil det bli en ny spiss/bul men den andre veien. God fornøyelse

Hej Jeg har et spørgsmål vedrøende tå, bliver de forkortede pinde strikkede genem hele arbejdet ?? TÅ: På hver 3. og 4.p strikkes der forkortede p, det vil sige at hver 2. gang man strikker ned mod tåen strikkes der ikke over alle m, men vendes midt i arb når der er 10-13-16 m tilbage - læs STRIKKETIPS! Vh Mimi K Jensen

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 08:39:

Hei Mimi. Ja, de forkortede pinnene strikkes gjennom hele arbeidet, der du strikker over tåen. God fornøyelse

Bonjour, si je veux tricoter ces chaussettes mais en version haute, c'est à dire jusque sous le genou, combien de mailles dois-je monter ? Merci !

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 08:41:

Bonjour Rosy, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir adapter chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande. Pour toute assistance personnalisée, merci de contacter votre magasin DROPS, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Is het de bedoeling dat de verkorte toeren (elke 3de en 4de nld ) richting teen over het hele werk gedaan worden ?

DROPS Design 21.04.2018 kl. 12:52:

Hallo Evi, De verkorte toeren bij de teen gaan verder over het hele werk, alleen bij de teen zijn ze verkort. Maar lees ook de beschrijving voor de verkorte toeren voor de ronding aan de achterkant, want deze doe je gedeeltelijk tegelijkertijd.

Tried Xmas tree decoration socks first, got double end and circular needles, then found this lovely design and learnt garter stitch grafting on my first adult wearable pair. Super clear patterns and very user friendly efficient website.

Berit Dahl 04.03.2018 - 15:59:

Sokker strikket sidelengs 161-38. Synes det ser ut som jeg straks skal strikke forhøyningen - som er til hæl, antar jeg. Men da kommer jo hælen i enden av sokken? Jeg gjetter at jeg først må strikke meg ned til der hælen skal begynne før jeg begynner på forhøyningen. Men hvor mange masker nedover er det? Eller har jeg misforstått fullstendig?

Solveig Outsen 02.10.2016 - 22:33:

Hi When using the marking thread, will it remain in st no 68 (size 38) for all 11 dec or when the no of st go down with each dec, will the placement of the mark also decrease to 67, 66 and so on. Thank you

DROPS Design 03.10.2016 kl. 09:55:

Dear Mrs Outsen, since you will dec on each side of the 68th st, this will not be anymore the 68th st after 1st dec, keep maker in this st and dec on each side of this st with the marker to let the dec be correct. Happy knitting!

Voor het minderen heb je een aantal steken, Na het minderen verder breien en dan weer meerderen. Dan staat er niet het juiste aantal steken vermeld. Het wijst zich wel vanzelf maar voor een onervaren breister wel verwarrend. Gewoon even het juiste aantal steken weer vermelden

Sabine Paul 31.03.2016 - 09:03:

Wo beginnt die Spitze dd. h. ab wo zähle ich die 3. u. 4. Reihe, nachdem ich die 120/130/140 Maschen aufgenommen habe? Lieben Dank für Ihre Antwort

DROPS Design 01.04.2016 kl. 08:56:

Liebe Sabine, es wird gleich gezählt, sobald Sie nach der Ferse über die ganze Reihe stricken.

Motacilla 15.12.2015 - 17:38:

Tere, "Igal 3. ja 4. real koo lühendatud ridu, st. igal teisel korral koo alla varbaosa poole, ära koo kõikidel silmustel, vaid pööra töö keskel, kuni jääb kududa 10-13-16 s - loe KUDUMISE NIPPI." Kas selle lause algus ei peaks olema "(Igal) 1., 3. ja 5. real koo lühendatud ridu"? Sest varba suunas kududes saab ridu lühemaks jätta ainult alates esimesest reast ja edasi igal ülejärgmisel, s.t paarituarvulisel.

DROPS Design 18.12.2015 kl. 11:40:

Read 1 ja 2 kootakse rea lõpuni, 3. ja 4. real tehakse lühendatud read. Ning siis uuesti otsast peale, ehk igal teisel korral kootakse alla välja.
