INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size.

HEEL DECREASE: 
ROW 1 (= 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, turn the piece.
ROW 2 (= 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, turn the piece.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit until there are 5-6-6 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Purl until there are 5-6-6 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
Continue to decrease like this by working until there is 1 less stitch before slipping a stitch and until you have 14-14-16 stitches left on the needles.
--------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, from the leg down to the toe.

Cast on 72-72-80 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and off white. Work PATTERN A.1 (= 18-18-20 stitches – choose the diagram for your size) 4 times on the round. On the round with an arrow in the diagram, change to coral. When A.1 has been completed, the piece measures approx. 5 cm from the top edge down. Work 1 round stocking stitch where you decrease 6-4-8 stitches evenly on round = 66-68-72 stitches. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round (= mid back). Continue with stocking stitch. AT THE SAME TIME on round 1 decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker as follows: Knit the first 2 stitches after the marker together and knit the last 2 stitches before the marker twisted together. Decrease like this every 3rd-4th-5th round a total of 6-5-5 times = 54-58-62 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 6-7-8 cm after diagram A.1. Now keep the first 12-13-14 stitches on the needle, place the next 30-32-34 stitches on a thread (= mid top of foot) and keep the last 12-13-14 stitches on the needle = 24-26-28 stitches for heel. Work stocking stitch back and forth over these heel stitches for 5-5½-6 cm. Insert 1 new marker. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE. Now decrease for heel - read HEEL DECREASE!
After the heel decrease, knit up 13-14-16 stitches on each side of the heel and the 30-32-34 stitches from the thread are placed back on the needles = 70-74-82 stitches. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 30-32-34 stitches on top of foot. Continue working stocking stitch AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease in each side as follows: Knit twisted together the last 2 stitches before the 30-32-34 stitches on top of foot and knit together the first 2 stitches after the 30-32-34 stitches on top of foot. Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 9-9-11 times = 52-56-60 stitches. Continue working until piece measures 18-19-21 cm measured from the heel marker (= 4-5-6 cm left to finished length). Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 26-28-30 stitches both on top and underneath the foot. Continue with stocking stitch over all stitches AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease for toe on each side of both markers. Decrease as follows: Work as far as 3 stitches before the marker, knit 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased), knit 2 stitches (marker is in the middle of these 2 stitches) and knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch decreased). Repeat at the other marker. Decrease like this in each side every 2nd round a total of 4-7-9 times and then every round a total of 6-3-2 times = 12-16-16 stitches left on needle. On the next round knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 6-8-8 stitches. 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.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on next round knit the yarn over to leave a hole
= knit 2 stitches together
= Knit 5 stitches together as follows: Knit 5 stitches, then slide them back onto the left needle, pass the next outermost stitch over the outermost, repeat until all 4 stitches have been passed over (= 4 stitches decreased). Place the last stitch back on the right needle.
= knit 5 stitches twisted together as follows: Knit 5 stitches, pass the next to last stitch worked over the last stitch, repeat until all 4 stitches are passed over (= 4 stitches decreased).
= this round is worked as follows: Fold row of holes (= 4th round in diagram) so that the wrong side lies towards the wrong side. Place the first stitch on the cast-on edge outermost on the left needle, knit the first 2 stitches on the needle together (i.e. the first stitch from the cast-on edge + first stitch on the round are knitted together). Place the next stitch on the cast-on edge outermost on the left needle, knit the first 2 stitches together (i.e. the next stitch from the cast-on edge + next stitch on the round are knitted together). Continue like this, knitting the next stitch from the cast-on edge together with the next stitch on the round until all stitches on both the edge and round have been knitted together.
= on this round change to coral

Buongiorno! Dove posso trovare un video per capire come lavorare la riga indicata con una stella nel diagramma? Non l'ho notato fra quelli correlati al modello però forse mi è sfuggito... Grazie!

Buongiorno Dina. Un video che spieghi come lavorare la riga con la stella non è ancora disponibile. Di fatto è un metodo che sostituisce la cucitura con un ago, dove invece di passare l'ago tra il filo delle due maglie, riprende una maglia dal ferro di avvio delle maglie e la lavora insieme con la maglia sul ferro. Buon lavoro!

Hallo, helaas zijn de plaatjes van de telpatroontjes niet zichtbaar.. daar staat nu een vraagteken. zowel op de pc als op de iPad niet te zien. kunnen jullie dit herstellen? dan ga ik enthousiast aan de slag! :)

Hallo Mary, Vaak heeft dit te maken met een (tijdelijke) internetstoring of verbindingsproblemen. De plaatjes zijn wel aanwezig op de site. De pagina herladen of later weren even proberen is de oplossing.
