PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Work entire pattern in stockinette st.

DECREASE TIP-1:
Dec 1 st on each side of the middle 5 sts in A.2 in each side as follows: Beg 1 sts before A.2, K 2 tog with anthracite, work the next 5 sts in A.2, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1 with anthracite, psso (= 2 sts dec).

DECREASE TIP-2:
Dec 1 st on each side of the middle 3 sts in A.2 in each side as follows: Work the first 2 sts in A.2 K tog with light pearl gray, work 1 st anthracite, 1 st light pearl gray, 1 st anthracite, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1 with light pearl gray, psso (= 2 sts dec).

HEEL DECREASE:
Row 1 (= RS): K until 7 sts remain, slip next st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): P until 7 sts remain, slip next st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 3 (= RS): K until 6 sts remain, slip next st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 4 (= WS): P until 6 sts remain, slip next st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.
Continue dec like this with 1 less st before each dec until there are 11 sts on needle.
--------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 60 sts in all sizes on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with anthracite. K 1 round, then work rib = K 1/P 1 for 4 rounds. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 and work pattern according to diagram A.1. When A.1 has been worked, piece measures approx. 4 cm / 1½''. Work next round as follows: Work A.2 (= 7 sts), A.3 (= 23 sts), A.2 (= 7 sts) and A.3 (= 23 sts). Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 17-18-19 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7½", dec 1 st on each side of A.2 in each side - READ DECREASE TIP 1 (= 4 sts dec) = 56 sts in all sizes. Continue pattern (now work A.3 over 21 sts front and back on sock). When piece measures 20-21-22 cm / 8"-8 1/4"-8 3/4", slip sts in A.2 + A.3 + A.2 (= 35 sts on top of foot) on a stitch holder = 21 sts remain on needle in all sizes for heel. Continue A.3 over these sts AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row cast on 1 new st in each side for edge sts = 23 sts on needle in all sizes (work edge sts in anthracite). When 5½-6-6 cm / 2 1/4"-2½"-2½" have been worked over heel sts, insert 1 marker. Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above (continue A.3 while dec). After heel dec, pick up 12-14-14 sts on each side of heel with anthracite and slip the 35 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 70-74-74 sts. Continue the 35 sts on top of foot as before according to diagram A.2 + A.3 + A.2, work the remaining sts under foot in stripes according to diagram A.4 (make sure to beg and end with light pearl gray so that pattern fits with A.2 in each side). AT THE SAME TIME dec on each side of the 33 sts on top of foot as follows: K the 2 sts before the middle 33 sts tog with anthracite and the 2 sts after the middle 33 sts twisted tog with anthracite. Repeat dec every other round 6 times in total = 58-62-62 sts. Work pattern until piece measures 17-19-21 cm / 6 3/4"-7½"-8 1/4" from marker on heel (approx. 5-5-6 cm / 2"-2"-2½" remain until finished measurements).
Then work as follows until finished measurements: Work A.2 as before, work A.4 over the next 21-21-21 sts, work A.2 as before and A.4 over the next 23-27-27 sts (stripes should now fit the entire round).
When piece measures 19-21-24 cm / 7½"-8 1/4"-9½" from marker on heel (approx. 3 cm / 1'' remain in all sizes before finished measurements), dec for toe on each side of the middle 3 sts in A.2 in each side – READ DECREASE TIP 2. Dec every round 10 times in total in all sizes = 18-22-22 sts. K all sts tog 2 by 2 with anthracite, cut the yarn and pull yarn end through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Knit another sock.

Mönstret som skrivs ut är inte lika som bilden känner mig lite besviken

Hej Ulla. Jeg har lest mönstret igennem og kigget paa diagrammerne - det er det samme mönster.

Miten kantapää kavennetaan? Ohje on jotenkin vaikea ymmärtää kun olen aloittelija. "Jatka kaventamista samalla tavalla, ja neulo niin että joka toisella kerroksella jäljellä olevien silmukoiden määrä vähenee yhdellä, ennen kuin nostat s. Toista kavennukset kunnes jäljellä on 11 s" Mitä tarkoittaa käytännössä, että joka toisella kerroksella jäljellä olevien silmukoiden määrä vähenee yhdellä ennen kavennusta??

DROPS Design 02.12.2015 kl. 15:58:

Neulot aluksi kantapääkavennusten kerrokset 1.-4. Tämän jälkeen neulotaan, kunnes jäljellä on 5 s (kerrokset 5. ja 6.), sitten tehdään ylivetokavennus. Seuraavalla kerralla ylivetokavennus tehdään, kun jäljellä on 4 s (kerrokset 7. ja 8.). Tähän tapaan jatkat, kunnes kerroksella on jäljellä 11 s.
