Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

HEEL DECREASE (worked in stockinette stitch):
ROW 1 (= right side): Work until (7-7-8-8) stitches remain, slip the next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Work until (7-7-8-8) stitches remain, slip the next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
ROW 3 (= right side): Work until (6-6-7-7) stitches remain, slip the next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Work until (6-6-7-7) stitches remain, slip the next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
Continue to decrease like this with 1 stitch less before each decrease until there are (10-10-12-12) stitches left on the needle.

Decrease as follows before the marker thread: Knit 2 together.
Decrease as follows after the marker thread: Knit 2 stitches twisted together.

The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles from the top of the sock down to the toe.
Cast on 64-64-72-72 stitches evenly divided between the double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 with denim blue. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (knit 2/ purl 2) for 3-3-3-3 cm / 1"-1"-1"-1''. Knit 1 round where you decrease 12-12-12-12 stitches evenly on the round = 52-52-60-60 stitches. Now work pattern as follows: Work A.1 (= 8 stitches) 6-6-7-7 times in width, work A.2 (= 4 stitches). NOTE: on rounds 6,10 and 33, 1 stitch is decreased in diagram A.2 = 49-49-57-57 stitches. On round 40 (= the round with the star) decrease 1 stitch evenly along the round = 48-48-56-56 stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue by working A.1 (= 6-6-7-7 times on the round). On the last round of A.1 adjust the number of stitches to 44-44-56-58 stitches.

The sock is now finished with pistachio. Keep the first 11-11-13-13 stitches on the needle, place the next 22-22-30-32 stitches on 1 thread (= mid top of foot) and keep the last 11-11-13-13 stitches on the needle = 22-22-26-26 stitches for the heel. Work stockinette stitch back and forth over the heel stitches for 4½-4½-5-5 cm / 1 3/4"-1 3/4"-2"-2".
Insert a marker thread in the middle of the heel stitches (= 11-11-13-13 stitches on each side of the marker thread). The marker thread follows the piece until you start decreasing for the toe. This makes it easier to get the decreases for the toe in the right place. Continue by decreasing for the heel – SEE HEEL DECREASE! After you have decreased for the heel, knit up 11-12-13-13 stitches on each side of the heel and the 22-22-30-32 stitches from the thread are placed back on the needle = 54-56-68-70 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread on each side of the 22-22-30-32 stitches mid top of foot. Continue working stockinette stitch, AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease in each side as follows: Knit the last 2 stitches before the 22-22-30-32 stitches mid top of foot twisted together (i.e. you work in the back of the stitch instead of the front), the first 2 stitches after the 22-22-30-32 stitches are knitted together. Decrease in this way every 2nd round a total of 6-6-10-10 times = 42-44-48-50 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 11-13-14-16 cm / 4½"-5"-5½"-6 1/4" from the marker thread on the heel – there is 4-4-4-4 cm / 1½"-1½"-1½"-1½" left until finished length. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of each side so that there are 21-22-24-25 stitches between the marker threads (the marker thread in the heel is mid under the foot). Continue by decreasing for the toe on each side of both marker threads – READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat the decreases in each side every 2nd round a total of 6-6-5-5 times and then every round 2-2-4-4 times = 10-12-12-14 stitches left on the needle. On the next round, knit 2 and 2 stitches together. Cut the strand and pull it through the remaining stitches, pull tight and fasten the strand well.
Work 1 more sock in the same way.

Thankyou for answering my questions, I really will try my best to make these socks. Thankyou for the pattern

Emma 22.06.2019 - 15:44:

Also is charts read left t right or all from right to left

DROPS Design 23.06.2019 kl. 08:51:

Dear Emma, knitting patterns (especially those knitted on teh round) should be always knitted from right to left just as you knit the stitches from the needles from right to left. Happy Knitting!

Emma 22.06.2019 - 15:35:

So do you knit 1row of a1 then 4stiches of a2. I'm confused

DROPS Design 23.06.2019 kl. 08:49:

Dear Emma, when you start to knit the pattern, you should knit pattern A.1 6 or 7 times (depending on the size) and the 4 stitches of pattern A.2 in the same round to finish the round. Happy Knitting!

Jasmin Braun 13.06.2019 - 21:23:

Ich stricke die Gr 32/34 und sie ist meine Tochter zu eng, obwohl sie sehr schmal ist und Gr 31 trägt. Das Bündchen passt aber dann wird es eng. Gibt es eine Umrechnungstabelle..bei 4fädrige Sockenwolle habe ich auch die gleiche Maschenzahl und diese passt. Woran liegt das?

DROPS Design 14.06.2019 kl. 07:19:

Liebe Frau Braun, stimmt Ihre Maschenproben? Sie sollen 26 M = 10 cm haben. Vielleicht ist der Anschlagsrand etwas zu eng? Die Maschen können Sie dann z.B. mit einer größeren Nadel anschlagen, dann weiter mit der Nadel (mit der Sie die 26 M = 10 cm bekommen). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Donna 25.03.2018 - 15:47:

DROPS Design 26.03.2018 kl. 11:30:

Dear Donna, are you looking for this pattern? Happy crocheting!

Elisabeth 16.06.2017 - 23:54:

Wunderschöne Socken. Aber die Anleitung (64 oder 72 Maschen ! ) passt nicht dazu. :-)

DROPS Design 19.06.2017 kl. 09:17:

Liebe Elisabeth, die Bündchen sind über die 64 bzw 72 M gestrickt, dann wird es zu 52-52-60-60 M abgenommen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
