KNITTING TIP:
To get a stronger heel the entire heel and heel decrease can be worked in 2 strands. Use strand inside and outside of ball and work 1 stitch alternately with one and the other strand. This way you get a thicker heel without working with double strand.

HEEL DECREASE (worked in stocking stitch):
ROW 1 (= right side): Work until 7-7-8 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over, turn piece.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Work until 7-7-8 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass slipped stitch over, turn piece.
ROW 3 (= right side): Work until 6-6-7 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over, turn piece. 
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Work until 6-6-7 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass slipped stitch over, turn piece. 
Continue decrease like this with 1 stitch less before each decrease until there are 14-14-16 stitches on needle.
---------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 64-68-72 stitches evenly on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with dark pink. Work STRIPES LEG - see explanation above. Work rib purl 2/knit 2. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! 
Continue with rib until stripes have been worked (piece measures approx. 15 cm). Slip the first 38-42-42 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= mid on top of foot) and keep the last 26-26-30 stitches on needle (=heel stitches). Read KNITTING TIP! Work in stocking stitch with pink back and forth over heel stitches for 5-5½-6 cm. Insert a marker thread in the piece. Now decrease for heel - see HEEL DECREASE! After heel decrease, pick up 13-14-16 stitches on each side of heel with off white and slip the 38-42-42 stitches from stitch holder back on needle = 78-84-90 stitches. Then work in stocking stitch and STRIPES ON FOOT. Insert 1 marker thread on each side of the 38-42-42 stitches on top of foot. Work rib on top of foot and stocking stitch under foot AT THE SAME TIME decrease in each side as follows: Knit the last 2 stitches before the 38-42-42 stitches twisted together (i.e. work in the back loop instead of front), knit the first 2 stitches after the 38-42-42 stitches together on top of foot. Decrease like this every other round 13-13-15 times in total = 52-58-60 stitches. Work until piece measures 18-19-22 cm from marker thread on heel, repeat the last 3 stripes foot if needed, 4-5-5 cm remain until finished measurements. Then insert 1 marker thread in each side so that there are 26-29-30 stitches between marker threads. Continue working stocking stitch over all stitches with pink while AT THE SAME TIME decrease for toes on each side of both marker threads. Decrease as follows before marker thread: Knit 2 together. Decrease as follows after marker thread: Knit 2 twisted together. Decrease like this in each side on every other round a total of 4-5-5 times and then on every round a total of 5-5-6 times = 16-18-16 stitches remain on needle. On next round work all stitches together 2 by 2. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten tog and fasten it on the inside of sock. Knit another sock.

Hoeveel breinaalden gebruik je?

DROPS Design 09.01.2019 kl. 11:14:

Dag Marjon,

Je gebruikt 4 naalden zonder knop om de sokken in der rondte te kunnen breien; je verdeeld de steken over 3 naalden en met de vierde naald begin je met breien.

Der står at der skal strikkes 14 masker efter hælindtagningen. Hvis jeg tager14 masker op, så er jeg ikke oppe ved de masker der er sat på tråd, jeg tror jeg kan tage ca. 19 masker op. Jeg har strikket 5 1/2 cm hæl. Pinde er nr. 2,5 og garnet er den abnbefalede type, men jeg strikker i ensfarvet mørkegrå, så det kan være svært at se hvad der er hvad for mig. Jeg er totalt nybegynder, så sandsynligheden for at jeg har lavet en fejl, er meget sandsynlig :-) kan I hjælpe/guide mig?

Hej Ann, prøv at fordele maskerne så du kun strikker 14 op som der står, ellers vil foden nok blive lidt for stor. Hvis du vælger at strikke 19 masker op (for at undgå huller) så kan du tage 2 masker ind i hver side (ved at strikke 2 masker sammen) så du kommer ned på det rigtige maskeantal igen og kan følge opskriften. God fornøjelse!
