Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 64-64-68-68 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with light denim blue. K 2 rounds, switch to light sky blue. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm.
Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work 1 round in stocking st while AT THE SAME TIME dec 4-4-2-2 sts evenly = 60-60-66-66 sts. Continue with A.1 – AT THE SAME TIME on last round of A.1 dec 2 sts evenly = 58-58-64-64 sts. When A.1 has been worked one time vertically, continue as follows: A.2A (= 6 sts) 4-4-5-5 times in total, A.2B (= 34 sts). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue with A.3 (= 6 sts) over all sts, AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round of A.3 dec 4 sts evenly = 54-54-60-60 sts. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, work 1 round in stocking st with dark mustard while AT THE SAME TIME dec 6-2-4-4 sts evenly = 48-52-56-56 sts. Piece measures approx. 21 cm. Insert a marker after 12th-12th-15th-15th st, next st is beg of round from here. Cut the yarn.

Insert 1 marker on each side of the 24-26-28-28 sts on top of foot. Continue in stocking st in the round while AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows: K tog the last 2 sts BEFORE first marker mid on top of foot twisted (i.e. work in the back loop of st instead of front) and K tog the first 2 sts AFTER last marker on top of foot. Repeat dec every other round a total of 7-8-8-7 times = 44-48-52-56 sts. Continue until piece measures 18-20-22-25 cm from marker on heel (= approx. 4-4-5-5 cm remain).

Follow up question: How many balls/grams of yarn is required (of each colour) for 2 socks? Will 100g of the yellow and 50g of the other 3 colours be enough?

DROPS Design 07.04.2019 kl. 19:46:

Dear Lucy, it depends on which size you are planning to make. For most sizes the amount you state will be enough, if you knit the largest sizes, you might eed an extra ball from the mustart and the sky blue colors. Happy Knitting!

Lucy 07.04.2019 - 17:49:

Is it possible to knit these socks using magic loop? If so, how many stchs per needle would be needed?

DROPS Design 07.04.2019 kl. 19:44:

Dear Lucy, yes, it is possible to knit these socks with magic loop :-) Happy Knitting!

I stedet for at skulle flytte omgangsstart, har jeg delt A2A i to, altså på hver side af kyllingerne, da jeg synes, det er pænest med start/slut bag på strømpen.

J'aimerais faire des chaussettes mais je ne sais pas tricoter avec des aiguilles doubles pointes. es ce possible de tricoter avec des aiguilles simple

DROPS Design 10.07.2017 kl. 09:14:

Bonjour Mme Savy, ces chaussettes se tricotent en rond, nos vidéos vous montrent comment tricoter en rond soit sur aiguilles doubles pointes soit sur aiguille circulaire (technique du magic loop, idéale pour les chaussettes). Bon tricot!

Marie-Marthe Laverdiere 17.06.2015 - 19:24:

Est ce que la longueur du pied, ça comprend le talon??? Et est-ce la même chose pour la hauteur de la jambe. Félicitations pour votre bon travail!!!!!

DROPS Design 18.06.2015 kl. 08:41:

Bonjour Mme Laverdiere et merci. La longueur de pied correspond à la longueur totale du talon à la pointe, la longueur de la jambe uniquement la tige, sans le talon. Bon tricot!

Wunderschön und trotzdem voll daneben. Denn: vom Motiv her sind es eher oder zumindest auch optimale Kindersocken. Anleitung/Maschenangaben ab Größe 26-28? Fehlanzeige! Das ärgert mich bei sehr, sehr vielen Socken. Bitte generell ergänzen! Wäre sehr wichtig!

DROPS Design 23.03.2015 kl. 11:30:

Liebe Daniela, ich werde es weiterleiten, vielleicht gibt es demnächst auch mehr Kindergrößen bei den Socken. Ansonsten zur Selbsthilfe schon mal ein Vorschlag, wenn Sie ein bisschen "tüfteln" mögen: Das Kindermodell 23-17 zeigt Socken in Kindergrößen in Karisma. Sie könnten sich für die Maschenzahl an diese Anleitung halten und das Ostermuster daran anpassen.
