STRIPES:
When working stripes in diagram, pull thread along on WS of piece, to avoid cutting and fastening it every time.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3.

HEEL DECREASE:
Row 1 (= RS): Work until 7-7-8 sts remain, slip next st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): Work until 7-7-8 sts remain, slip next st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 3 (= RS): Work until 6-6-7 sts remain, slip next st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
Row 4 (= WS): Work until 6-6-7 sts remain, slip next st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.
Continue dec like this with 1 st less before each dec until there are 14-16-16 sts on needle.
----------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 76-76-76 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with off white. K 1 round and P 1 round. Then work A.1 (= 4 repetition in all sizes). When A.1 has been worked one time vertically, there are 68-68-68 sts on round. Continue with A.2. When piece measures 7-7-8 cm, keep the first 25 sts on needle for heel, slip the next 35 sts on 1 stitch holder (= mid on top of foot) and keep the last 8 sts on needle for heel = 33 sts for heel. Work in stocking st back and forth over heel sts with shoreline, AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec 7-5-3 sts evenly = 26-28-30 sts. When heel measures 5-5½-6 cm, insert 1 marker in the middle of heel - NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Now work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above! After heel dec, pick up 13-14-16 sts on each side of heel and slip the 35 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 75-79-83 sts. Continue pattern as before on top of foot (= A.3) and work in stocking st over the remaining sts - AT THE SAME TIME dec in each side as follows: K tog the last 2 sts before the 35 sts twisted (i.e. work in the back loop instead of front) and K tog the first 2 sts after the middle 35 sts on top of foot. Repeat dec every other round 10 times in total = 55-59-63 sts. Work until piece measures 17-19-21 cm from marker on heel (= 5-5-6 cm remain). Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 27-29-31 sts on top of foot and 28-30-32 sts under foot. Continue working stocking st over all sts while AT THE SAME TIME dec for toes on each side of both markers as follows: Before marker: K 2 tog. After marker: K 2 twisted tog. Repeat dec in each side every other round a total of 7-6-7 times and then every round a total of 4-6-6 times = 11 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Kiitos ohjeesta. Helppo ja täynnä elämää.

Liloo 25.02.2017 - 16:56:

Bonjour Comment adapter ce modèle aux aiguilles circulaires? Merci

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 09:56:

Bonjour Liloo, utilisez la technique dite magic loop pour tricoter sur aiguille circulaire. Continuez ensuite comme indiqué dans les explications. Bon tricot!

Sarah Klaveness 13.02.2017 - 19:15:

Thanks for that, could you also let me know the actual foot circumference of the finished sock? Thanks

DROPS Design 14.02.2017 kl. 09:15:

Dear Mrs Klaveness, foot circumference is the basic one matching the foot sizes. You can work a swatch in wave pattern to check if required. Happy knitting!

Sarah Klaveness 11.02.2017 - 22:21:

Hi, can you let me know if the sizes on this pattern are for the finished items actual size, or the size of foot it is intended to fit? Thanks

DROPS Design 13.02.2017 kl. 10:28:

Dear Mrs Klavenesse, the finished sock will measure 22-24-27 cm. Happy knitting!

Can't print pattern Dancing Zoe 168-24. Error is PCL XL Error, Insufficient memory. Have never had a problem before printing DROPS patterns. Thanks, Mary

DROPS Design 10.11.2016 kl. 08:58:

Dear Mrs Kanters, it seems this message comes from your printer, check settings and tech-faq from your printer to find out the reason. Happy knitting!

Gaby 25.06.2016 - 18:19:

Hi, what you mean by in stripes , pull thread along on WS of piece? it seems that the colour change falls to the start of the row and in circular knitting it is the same stich in every row. do you mean pull along vertically? thank you

Gaby 25.06.2016 kl. 18:21:

Hi, please ignore my question, i figured it out.

DROPS Design 27.06.2016 kl. 09:17:

Dear Gaby, yes you are right, along mean here when working, ie vertically, so that you don't have to cut and fasten the yarns at each stripe. Happy knitting!
