Then work in stocking st but continue rib over the middle 28-28-34-34-40-40 sts mid back (= 14-18-18-22-22-26 sts in stocking st at the front of sock). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 5-5-5-6-6-6 cm, dec every other P 4 to P 3 (dec 1 st by P 2 tog = 3-3-3-3-4-4 sts dec). After 2½-3-4-5-6-6 cm dec the remaining P 4 to P 3.

Dec every other round 7-8-8-9-9-11 times in total = 30-34-36-40-40-42 sts.
Continue to work until piece measures approx. 10-12-13-14-16-18 cm from marker on heel (approx. 3-3-4-4-4-4 cm remain until finished measurements). Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 15-17-18-20-20-21 sts on both upper foot and under foot. Then dec for toes on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every other round a total of 4-4-5-5-5-5 times and then every round 2-2-2-3-3-3 times = 6-10-8-8-8-10 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Sock measures approx. 13-15-17-18-20-22 cm from marker on heel. Knit another sock.

Vielen Dank, für die schnelle Antwort. LG Meischl

Claudia Meischl 02.09.2018 - 18:07:

Hallo liebes Team, ich verstehe beim Kragen die Abnahme nicht. Beids.d.h. am Anfang jeder R. Abketten: 5M je 1x, 4M je 1x u.s.w.ist damit gemeint am Anfang und Ende der R. gleich 5 M auf einmal abketten od. 5x nacheinander je R. 1x abnehmen. LG Claudia

DROPS Design 03.09.2018 kl. 15:57:

Liebe Frau Meischl, Sie werden am Anfang jeder Reihe (Hin sowie Rückreihen) so abketten: 5 M x 1 (= 5 M am Anfang der nächsten Hinreihe, die Reihe bis zur Ende stricken, wenden, 5 M am Anfang der Rückreihen abketten, die Reihe bis zur Ende stricken), dann: 4 M x 1 (= wie zuvor aber jetzt nur 4 M am Anfang der nächsten beiden Reihen abketten), usw. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ik brei inderdaad heen en weer, maar de mouwen brei je toch echt rond bij dit patroon. Mijn probleem is dat de mouwen dan nauwelijks op de naalden passen, Daar zoek ik een oplossing voor.

DROPS Design 21.04.2016 kl. 11:34:

Hoi Mira. Ja, je breit het lijf heen en weer en de mouwen in de rondte. Maar als je alle steken op de nld zet voor de raglan (inclusief de mouwen) brei je de pas heen en weer (dus ook de steken voor de mouwen. Tot aan het armsgat brei je de mouwen in de rondte - ik verwijs hier naar mijn vorige reactie betreffend nld en magic loop.

Mira Tax 19.04.2016 - 20:55:

Bedankt voor het antwoord! Werkt die magic loop ook als je de pas breit, dwz als de mouwen samen met voor- en achterpand op 1 rondbreinaald staan en er moet worden geminderd voor de raglan?

DROPS Design 20.04.2016 kl. 15:32:

Hoi Mira. Je hooft geen magic loop voor de pas - je breit heen en weer

Mira Tax 19.04.2016 - 10:36:

Ik ben bezig met de pas. Voor het breien van de mouwen zijn de punten van mijn rondbreinaalden echter te lang (merk Knit Pro): ik krijg de mouw niet goed gebreid. Zijn er verwisselbare naaldpunten van Drops die korter zijn en geschikt om de mouwen mee te breien?

DROPS Design 19.04.2016 kl. 15:51:

Hoi Mira. Onze punten zijn niet korter, maar probeer eventueel met breinaalden zonder knop of de magic loop techniek:
