----------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 64-64-68-68 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with cerise. Work 1 round in stockinette st. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm / 1½''. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 and K 1 round while at the same time dec 4 sts evenly = 60-60-64-64 sts. Work A.1 (= 4 sts) 15-15-16-16 times in width in total. On last round of A.1 dec 0-0-4-4 sts evenly = 60 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE K 0-0-1-3 round with light sky blue. Work A.2 (= 10 sts) 6 times in total in width, insert 1 marker after 25 sts (i.e. in the middle of 3rd repetition of A.2 = marks mid front). When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, K 0-0-2-3 rounds with light sky blue. Work A.3 (= 4 sts), on last round of A.3 dec 4 sts evenly = 56 sts. Work A.4 (= 7 sts) 8 times in width in total. When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, piece measures approx. 15-15-16-17 cm / 6"-6"-6 1/4"-6 3/4". Then work A.5 (= 6 sts) on first round dec 2 sts evenly = 54 sts. On 3rd round, dec 2-0-0-0 sts evenly = 52-54-54-54 sts. On 6th round, dec 4-0-0-0 sts evenly = 48-54-54-54 sts. Work diagram A.5 8-9-9-9 times in the round. Then work A.6 (= 4 sts), on first round dec 0-2-0-0 sts or inc 0-0-2-2 evenly = 48-52-56-56 sts. Work diagram A.6 12-13-14-14 times in the round. K 1 round with light oak. Piece now measures approx. 24-24-25-26 cm / 9½"-9½"-9 3/4"-10 1/4".

Adjust round to beg 24-26-28-28 sts from marker mid front. Now keep the first 12-13-14-14 sts on needle for heel, slip the next 24-26-28-28 sts on 1 stitch holder (marker is in the middle of these sts = mid on top of foot) and keep the last 12-13-14-14 sts on needle for heel. Continue with light oak and stockinette st back and forth over the 24-26-28-28 heel sts for 5-5½-6-6½ cm / 2"-2 1/4"-2 3/8"-2½". Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above. After heel dec, pick up 11-12-13-14 sts on each side of heel with light oak and slip the 24-26-28-28 sts from stitch holder back on needle = 58-64-68-70 sts. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 24-26-28-28 sts on top of foot. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Work in stockinette st with light oak and dec on each side of the 24-26-28-28 sts on top of foot as follows: K the last 2 sts BEFORE first marker on top of foot tog and K the first 2 sts AFTER last marker on top of foot twisted tog. Repeat dec on every other round a total of 5-8-7-5 times = 48-48-54-60 sts. Continue to work with light oak until piece measures approx. 9-10-13-15 cm / 3½"-4"-5"-6" from marker on heel (approx. 13-14-14-15 cm / 5"-5½"-5½"-6" remain). Work A.7 (= 6 sts) 8-8-9-10 times on round. On last round in A.7, dec 4-0-2-4 sts evenly = 44-48-52-56 sts. Then work pattern according to diagram A.8 (= 4 sts) 11-12-13-14 times in total on round. Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 22-24-26-28 sts on top of foot and 22-24-26-28 sts under foot. Switch to cerise. Work 1 round in stockinette st. Then dec for toes on each side of both markers – READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec on every other round 4-4-5-5 times in total and then on every round 5-6-6-7 times in total = 8 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Work another sock but when inserting 1 marker in diagram A.2, insert it after 35 sts (i.e. in the middle of 4th repetition of A.2 = marks mid front).

How do I avoid the jog in back of socks where contrast colours change?

Kniterella 09.09.2018 - 02:00:

I have almost knitted A1 chart, Tension is out 24 stitches on 3.50mm needles measured over 4" then on front half of sock on rnd 5 of A1. I am knitting them a bit bigger in calf I intend to sell the socks in my Etsy shop. What should I do. I'm a loose Knitter but new to Continental. I have been knitting English throwing yarn with rt finger but not yarn over finger. Please advise, shpuld I frog it all n start again? The knitted fabric feels just right am weaving in CC yarn.

Karisma is only 100 % wool. How good It is for socks, because it does not have any polyamide?

DROPS Design 18.12.2017 kl. 08:53:

Dear Tarja, you can use Karisma for the socks. If you want a strong yarn you can choose a yarn with Polyamide such as Fabel (Superwash) or Nord (not Superwash) but will have then to adjust the pattern since it's not the same yarn group. Happy knitting!

Bonjour! Ce patron est vraiment très joli!

Michèle Balon 03.12.2016 - 11:01:

Je crains qu'il y ait une erreur de quantité pour ce joli modèle : vous indiquez en effet 100 g de chêne clair, or les motifs de cette couleur ne sont pas nombreux et semblent utiliser peu de laine. Par contre 50 g de naturel paraissent nettement insuffisants et le rose aussi, je pense... Etant tricoteuse, je vais corriger de moi-même mais ce serait bien de vérifier pour modifier les quantités sur le modèle. Merci et bonne journée.

Jenneke 11.11.2016 - 10:49:

Ik vroeg mij af waar je de markeerder voor de hiel plaatst. Meet je vanaf de hiel of vanaf de plaats waar je bent begonnen met licht eiken? Alvast bedankt!

DROPS Design 11.11.2016 kl. 15:12:

Hoi Jenneke. Je plaatst de markeerder zoals er staat in het patroon: Plaats 1 markeerder aan elke kant van de 24-26-28-28 st op de bovenkant van de voet. Je doet dit nadat je de st hebt opgenomen in licht eiken. En dan MEET NU HET WERK VANAF HIER.

Marjon Peuteman 02.10.2016 - 09:29:

Ik heb dit patroon gebruikt om een muts en sjaal voor een klein meisje mee te breien. Ik heb Cotton Merino gebruikt ipv Karisma en het resultaat was zeer geslaagd. het was ontzettend leuk om te breien met al die vrolijke kleuren en leuke motieven, ik werd er helemaal happy van :-)

Unni Flagstad 30.09.2016 - 14:28:

Har startet opp med de fine sokkene, men ser at jeg skal på første sokk sette et merke etter 25 masker ,noe som beskrives som midt foran. Er det feil? Da merket skulle settes hadde jeg 60 masker på pinnene. Blir ikke midt foran for meg da men...... Takknemlig for svar Hilsen Unni

DROPS Design 04.10.2016 kl. 16:32:

Hej Unni. Jo, det burde vaere korrekt. Du justerer senere saa starten af omg er 24 eller 26 m för merket (de to mindste str), og saa setter du de förste 12-13 m p een traad, holder de naeste 24-26 m paa pinden (og saa sidder dit merke i midten af disse og saetter sidste 12-13 paa en traad. M paa traaden er haelen.

Jette Nielsen 17.09.2016 - 13:10:
