Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 48-52-52 (56-56) stitches on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Puna. Work A.1 (= 2 stitches) over the first 18-20-20 (22-22) stitches, A.2a (= 13 stitches) and finish with A.3 (= 2 stitches) over the remaining 17-19-19 (21-21) stitches. When A.2a has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.2b over A.2a. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 5-6-6 (6-7) cm, work as before until 1 stitch remains on round, knit the last stitch and the first 2 stitches 3 together (= 2 stitches decreased), work 4 rounds, then purl 3 stitches (= purl 1, knit 1 twisted, 1 purl) together mid back (= 2 stitches decreased) = 44-48-48 (52-52) stitches.
When piece measures approx. 8-9-10 (11-12) cm, adjust so that next round in A.2b is 1st or 3rd round, work the first 16-18-18 (20-20) stitches, then slip them on 1 stitch holder, work the next 13 stitches and keep this on the needle (A.2b = upper foot) and work the remaining 15-17-17 (19-19) stitches and then slip them on 1 stitch holder. Cut the yarn and continue back and forth with A.2b over the 13 stitches on needle.
When upper foot measures 3½-4-5 (6½-7½) cm, pick up 10-12-14 (20-22) stitches on each side of upper foot and slip stitches from stitch holders back on needles = 64-72-76 (92-96) stitches. Work rib (= purl 1, knit 1 twisted) in the round, over all stitches for 1½-2-2½ (3-3½) cm, then cast off the first 26-30-32 (40-42) stitches, work rib as before over the next 13 stitches and cast off the last 25-29-31 (39-41) stitches.
Work rib back and forth for 9-10-11 (13-15) cm over the remaining 13 stitches for sole. Stitch knitted twisted from right side, is purled from wrong side.
Cast off and sew sole to sock - sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam. 
Knit another sock the same way.


= knit twisted from right side, purl from wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= slip 3 stitches on cable needle behind piece, knit 1, knit 3 from cable needle
= slip 1 stitch on cable needle in front of piece, knit 3, knit 1 from cable needle

My problem is the same as Pauline's: how can there be a wrong or right side when knitting in the round on dp needles???

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 15:55:

Dear Mrs Darby Clifford-Rosengren, A.2b is first worked in the round on the leg, then back and forth for the top of foot (later in the pattern). Happy knitting!

Elena 21.11.2018 - 00:55:

Non riesco a capire bene come cominciare... come lavoro i diagrammi in tondo al primo giro? A coste, ma con diritto ritorto? Grazie

DROPS Design 21.11.2018 kl. 06:43:

Buongiorno Elena. Sì è corretto, nei primi tre giri lavora le coste con il diritto ritorto,quindi lavorando la maglia nel filo dietro. Buon lavoro!

Martina 09.11.2018 - 22:31:

Hallo, Habe bereits Baby Akorn gestrickt und möchte noch diese Söckchen dazu machen. Kann ich die Socken auch mit Nadelgröße 4 und 21 Maschen=10 cm stricken? Oder wäre das Ergebnis nicht so schön?

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 08:21:

Liebe Martina, wenn Sie größere Nadeln benutzen, werden die fertige Söckchen nicht die richtige Größe haben, da die Maschenprobe zu diesem Modell ist 24 M x 34 Reihe glatt = 10 x 10 cm - wir haben Nadelgröße Nr 2,5 benutzt, aber am besten eine Maschenprobe zuerst stricken, und die Nadelgröße anpassen wenn es nötig ist. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Pauline 24.10.2018 - 10:52:

On reviewing the pattern I assume that Since we knit in the round on 3 needles, there is no wrong side, we work right side continuously? But pattern specifies right and wrong side, how can this be???

DROPS Design 24.10.2018 kl. 15:41:

Dear Pauline, you will work A.2b back and forth over the middle stitches on top of foot. Happy knitting!

Francesca 14.10.2018 - 12:15:

Buongiorno. Purtroppo non mai fatto calze ma vorrei provare e chiedo: poso lavorare con i circolari? I ferri a doppia punta devono essere 4 giusto?

DROPS Design 14.10.2018 kl. 21:38:

Buonasera Francesca, per lavorare calze così piccole sono necessari i ferri a doppia punta. Può usarne 3 e lavorare con il quarto, oppure 4 e lavorare con il quinto. Buon lavoro!

Freya 05.10.2018 - 15:25:

Hi, I have knitted the upper foot and need to pick up 12 stitches on each side. I have never picked up stitches before and don't understand where I should start? Do I start picking up to the left of the upper foot using the same yarn I've been knitting with and work my way round the sock taking the stitches off the holders as I go until I get round to the right of the upper foot and pick up 12 there too? Or do I pick them up separately on each side with new yarn, leaving tails to sew in?

DROPS Design 05.10.2018 kl. 15:37:

Dear Freya, yes correct, you pick up sts along the left side of the upper foot with the same yarn you used for upper foot, then work the sts from thread, pick up sts on the right side of upper foot and continue now in the round. Happy knitting!

Elena 21.09.2018 - 08:17:

Buongiorno, avrei intenzione di sostituire Puna con Merino extra fine per confezionare un paio di snow boot per 12/18 mesi. Bastano 50 grammi di filato? Grazie, Elena.

DROPS Design 21.09.2018 kl. 09:29:

Buongiorno Elena. Sì dovrebbero bastare. 50 gr di Puna corrispondono a 53 gr di Merino extra fine, ma dovrebbe riuscire ugualmente a completare il lavoro con 1 gomitolo. Buon lavoro!

Carole Ryan 26.08.2018 - 00:58:

I am having a hard time starting these. Bought the yard and needles from you. Is there a video that shows how to do the A.1 stitches? “Knit twisted from right side,purl from wrong side” Is that done on the same 1 stitch? Also “purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side”. Is this all done on the same stitch as well?

DROPS Design 26.08.2018 kl. 07:45:

Hi Carole, You are working back and forth, so the symbol for knit twisted from the right side, purl from the wrong side means that you knit those stitches twisted (i.e. knit in the back loop of the stitch) when working from the right side and purl the same stitches when working from the wrong side. In the same way, there is a symbol in the diagram which means that you purl stitches from the right side and knit them from the wrong side. Happy knitting!

Hei, hvis jeg skal strikke denne med drops extra fine (4mm pinne), hvor mange masker må jeg starte med?

DROPS Design 27.07.2018 kl. 12:02:

Hei Naciye. Extra fine og Puna tilhører begge garngruppe B, og har samme strikkefasthet, så det er ikke noe i veien for å bytte dem ut med hverandre. Når det er sagt så er de anbefalte pinnene til disse sokkene 2,5, men det erstrikkefastheten som avgjør hvilke pinner du må bruke: oppskriften er skrevet med en strikkefasthet på 24 masker og 34 pinner glattstrikk = 10x10 cm. Det er denne du må sørge for å overholde, ellers risikerer du at sokkene får helt feil mål. Du må prøve deg frem til du finner det pinnenr som gir deg riktig strikkefasthet. God fornøyelse.
