INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. See diagram for your size in A.1.

KNITTING TIP:
To strengthen the heel and heel decrease, use 2 strands. Use the strand both from the inside and outside of the ball and work 1 stitch alternately with first the one then the other strand. In this way you get a slightly thicker heel without using a double strand.

HEEL DECREASE:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit until there are 7-8-8 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch, turn piece.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Purl until there are 7-8-8 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over the purled stitch, turn piece.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit until there are 6-7-7 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch, turn piece
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Purl until there are 6-7-7 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over the purled stitch, turn piece
Continue to decrease like this by working until there is 1 less stitch left before slipping the next stitch, until there are 14-14-16 stitches left on row.

DECREASE TIP (for toe):
Decrease on each side of the marker as follows: Start 3 stitches before the marker, knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), 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, from the leg down to the toe.
Cast on 54-54-61 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 and Fabel. Knit 1 round. Then work as follows: A.1 (= 27-27-34 stitches), A.2 (= 27 stitches). Work A.1 and A.2 A one time in height. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Now keep the first 27-27-34 stitches on the needle for the heel, place the other 27-27-27 stitches on 1 thread (= mid top of foot). Read KNITTING TIP! Work stockinette stitch back and forth for 5-5½-6 cm / 2''-2 1/4''-2½'' over the heel stitches; on row 1 adjust the number of stitches to 26-28-30 stitches. Insert 1 marker in middle of row - THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Now work HEEL DECREASE - see description above. When the heel decrease is finished, knit up 13-15-17 stitches on each side of the heel and the 27-27-27 stitches from the thread are placed back on the needles = 67-71-77 stitches. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 27-27-27 stitches on top of foot. Work A.2 B over the stitches on top of foot and stockinette stitch over the stitches underneath the foot and decrease on each side of the 27-27-27 stitches (= A.2 B) on top of foot 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 last marker on top of foot. Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 8-8-9 times = 51-55-59 stitches. Continue A.2B until the piece measures approx. 18-19-21 cm / 7''-7½''-8¼'' from the heel marker (there are now approx. 4-5-6 cm / 1½''-2''-2 3/8'' left to finished length). Insert 1 marker on each side of the sock so that there are 26-28-30 stitches on top of foot and 25-27-29 stitches underneath. Now decrease to toe on each side of these 2 markers - read DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 4-7-9 times and then every round a total of 6-3-2 times = 11-15-15 stitches left on needle. On the next round knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 6-8-8 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, pull tight and fasten well.

Work one more sock in the same way.

My apologies if this has been noted before (I can only read English) - I am really enjoying making this pattern for my granddaughter. I think I have discovered a very tiny error on Chart A.2 B, 3rd row. I think there should be a yarn over symbol after the centre stitch, immediately after the two stitches twisted together. Thank you so much for this beautiful design. Kay, New Zealand

Piirroksesta A2B nähtävästi puuttuu yksi langankierto riviltä 3 kolmannen puikon lopusta.

KarinB 22.03.2018 - 13:16:

Hei! Lurer på om det er en feil i mønster A2B. Får en maske for lite på pinnen hver gang. Mangler det et kast etter 2 r sm på tredje pinne?

DROPS Design 26.04.2018 kl. 11:49:

Hej Karin, ja du har helt ret, her mangler der 1 kast. Tak for info :)

Karin 19.03.2018 - 10:42:

Hei!\r\nLurer på om det er en bommert i mønster A2B? Får en maske for lite etter tredje pinne hver gang.. lurer på om det mangler et kast etter 2 m r sm? Eller er det noe jeg ikke har forstått?\r\n:-)

Joli modèle malheureusement taille très petit...

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 11:01:

Bonjour Amy, pensez toujours à bien vérifier - et à bien conserver - la même tension que pour l'échantillon indiqué, soit ici: 26 m x 34 rangs jersey = 10 x 10 cm. N'hésitez pas à utiliser des aiguilles plus grosses si nécessaire. Bon tricot!

Linda 07.03.2018 - 18:51:

Est ce que l'on tricote au point mousse entre les points jeté ?

DROPS Design 08.03.2018 kl. 09:00:

Bonjour Linda, les diagrammes montrent tous les tours/rangs du point fantaisie, tricotez les mailles sur l'endroit (en rond) comme elles doivent se présenter, soit un tiret (-) est une maille envers tous les tours, ainsi, entre les torsades de A.1, on tricote 4 ou 5 m env tous les tours. Bon tricot!

Suzie 04.03.2018 - 15:56:

Bonjour, j'ai bien relu et je me suis trompé. Il ne fallait pas les tricotés ensemble les 2 mailles mais bien séparément. Faut croire que j'étais encore endormi. Ici il est 9h56.

Suzie 04.03.2018 - 15:54:

Bonjour, j'ai essayé de faire ce patron mais dans les diagrammes a.1 et a.2 j'ai fait le premier rang et lorsque que je viens pour faire le deuxième rang je ne peux faire (1 jeté entre 2 mailles) car au premier rang j'ai fait une (double diminution) selon la légende.

DROPS Design 05.03.2018 kl. 09:15:

Bonjour Suzie, on ne diminue qu'une seule maille au 1er rang, il reste ainsi 2 m end et au 2ème rang, on tricote 1 m end, 1 jeté, 1 m end. La vidéo ci-dessous montre comment tricoter cette torsade. Bon tricot!

Sandra 03.03.2018 - 00:26:

I want to make these socks but ise a Patons DK superwash...4ply...50g...#3 light Is this a good alternative yarn

DROPS Design 04.03.2018 kl. 18:22:

Dear Sandra, when substituting yarn, you should always make a swatch, checl your gauge to see if it is about the same as given in the pattern. Happy Knitting!
