INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

HEEL DECREASE: 
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit until there are 7-8-8-10 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch, turn the piece.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Purl until there are 7-8-8-10 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over the purled stitch, turn the piece.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit until there are 6-7-7-9 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch, turn the piece.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Purl until there are 6-7-7-9 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over the purled stitch, turn the piece. 
Continue decreasing in the same way, with 1 less stitch before slipping 1 stitch, until there are 14-16-16-20 stitches left on the needle.

DECREASE TIP (for toe):
Start 2 stitches before the marker, knit 2 together, marker, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

SOCK: 
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles. Cast on 68-76-76-84 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and Fabel. Knit 1 round. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round = mid back. Work A.1 in the round (= 17-19-19-21 repeats of 4 stitches). When the piece measures 4 cm work the next round as follows: Continue A.1 over the first 12-16-16-20 stitches (= 3-4-4-5 repeats of 4 stitches), work A.2 (= 3 stitches), A.3 (= 38 stitches which are decreased to 34 stitches), A.4 (= 3 stitches) and A.1 over the last 12-16-16-20 stitches (= 3-4-4-5 repeats of 4 stitches) = 64-72-72-80 stitches on the needle. Continue as follows: Continue A.1 over the first 12-16-16-20 stitches, A.2 (= 3 stitches), work A.5 (= 34 stitches), continue A.4 (= 3 stitches) and continue A.1 over the last 12-16-16-20 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 12-14-16-18 cm keep the first 13-15-15-19 stitches and the last 13-15-15-19 stitches on the needle for heel, the middle 38-42-42-42 stitches are placed on a thread (= mid top of foot).
Continue A.1 back and forth over the heel stitches and at the same time cast on 1 edge stitch in each side on the first row = 28-32-32-40 stitches. When the heel measures 5-5½-6-6½ cm cast off 1 edge stitch in each side = 26-30-30-38 stitches. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the row.
Now work HEEL DECREASE – see description above!
After the heel decrease, knit up 13-14-16-17 stitches on each side of the heel (knit up stitches inside the 1 edge stitch in each side of the heel) and the 38-42-42-42 stitches from the thread are placed back on the needles = 78-86-90-96 stitches.
Insert 1 marker on each side of the middle 38 stitches on top of foot (for all sizes). Continue in the round with A.5 as before over the middle 34 stitches on top of foot and A.6 (= 2 stitches) on each side of A.5, the remaining stitches are worked in stocking stitch. AT THE SAME TIME decrease in each side as follows: Knit together the last 2 stitches before the first marker on top of foot and knit twisted together the first 2 stitches after the second marker on top of foot. Decrease in this way every 2nd round a total of 8-10-10-11 times = 62-66-70-74 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 18-19-21-23 cm from the marker on heel (= 4-5-6-7 cm left to finished length).
Knit 1 round where you decrease 10 stitches evenly over A.5 and A.6 = 52-56-60-64 stitches. Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 26-28-30-32 stitches both on top and underneath the foot. Work stocking stitch in the round - AT THE SAME TIME decrease to toe on each side of both markers – READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease in this way every 2nd round a total of 4-7-9-11 times and then every round a total of 6-3-2-0 times = 12-16-16-20 stitches. On the next round knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 6-8-8-10 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.
Work another sock in the same way.

Bonjour je tricote ce modèle.Quand l'ouvrage mesure 16cm on commence le talon. On prend les 15 premières et les 15 dernières mailles Comment tricoter A1 en aller retour alors que le début du rang est au milieu de ces 30 mailles?

DROPS Design 15.01.2018 kl. 15:50:

Bonjour Mme Broux, vous pouvez couper le fil et continuer le rang suivant soit sur l'endroit soit sur l'envers (ajustez en fonction de A.1 pour que les torsades soient sur l'endroit). Bon tricot!

Hallo, ich habe den Mustersatz A.5 jetzt einmal gestrickt aber wie geht es weiter? Ich kann nicht einfach unten anfangen, da sonst der Zopf an der Seite nicht stimmt.

DROPS Design 29.11.2017 kl. 08:23:

Liebe Frau Weißenbach, nach 20. Reihen in A.5 ist das mittlere Muster fertig, von Reihe 1 wiederholen, bei den 2 Zöpfen sollen Sie noch 4 Reihen stricken, dann von Reihe 1 wiederholen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
