Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

DECREASE TIP-1:
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 54 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 4) = 13.5.
In this example, knit together alternately the 12th and 13th stitch and the 13th and 14th stitch.

KNITTING TIP:
To strengthen the heel, the heel and heel decreases can be worked with 2 strands as follows: Use the strand from both the outside and inside of the ball and work 1 stitch alternately with the one strand then the other. In this way you get a slightly thicker heel without working with a double strand.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.

HEEL DECREASE:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit until there are 8-8-9 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 8-8-9 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 7-7-8 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 7-7-8 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 in this way, by working until there is 1 less stitch before slipping 1 stitch, until there are 16-16-14 stitches left on needle.

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

SOCK:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, top down. 
Cast on 54-54-63 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and Flora. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 2-2-3 cm. Knit 1 round where you decrease 4-4-3 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 50-50-60 stitches.
The next round is worked as follows: Knit 35-35-45 stitches, then place the last 20-20-30 stitches worked on a thread (= mid top of foot), knit the remaining 15-15-15 stitches = 30-30-30 stitches on needle for heel.
Read KNITTING TIP and work stocking stitch back and forth over the heel stitches for 5-5½-6 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Insert 1 marker in the middle of the row - the piece is now measured from this marker.
Then work HEEL DECREASE – see description above. After the heel decrease, work the next round as follows: Knit the 16-16-14 stitches from the heel, knit up 13-14-16 stitches along the side of the heel, knit the 20-20-30 stitches from the thread mid top of foot and knit up 13-14-16 stitches along the other side of the heel = 62-64-76 stitches on needle.
Continue by working A.1 in the round – AT THE SAME TIME on the first round decrease 12-14-16 stitches evenly on round = 50-50-60 stitches. There is now room for 5-5-6 repeats of 10 stitches around the sock.
Continue A.1 until the piece measures approx. 18-20-22 cm from the heel marker, but finish after a complete repeat in height. If the sock measures less than this after a complete repeat, work stocking stitch in the round to the correct length (there are now 4-4-5 cm left to finished length).
Insert 1 marker in each side of the sock so that there are 25-25-30 stitches on top of foot and 25-25-30 stitches under the foot. Work stocking stitch in the round over all stitches. AT THE SAME TIME on the first round, decrease to toe on each side of both markers – read DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 6-6-7 times and then every round a total of 3-3-4 times = 14-14-16 stitches left on needle. Knit all stitches together 2 and 2 on the next round. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining 7-7-8 stitches, pull tight and fasten well.
Work the other sock in the same way.

Bonjour je vien de commencer les chaussettes et cela ne correspond pas .. Je suis à la séparation du talon on a 50 mailles, je doit tricoter 35 mailles endroit mettre 20 mailles sur un fil et tricoter 15 mailles endroit, mais cela nous donne pas 50 mailles mais 70 !! Comment dois-je procéder ?

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 15:36:

Bonjour Mme Sivet, vous tricotez 35 m et mettez les 20 dernières de ces 35 mailles en attente sur un fil (= il reste donc les 15 premières mailles sur l'aiguille), et tricotez les 15 dernières mailles = vous avez maintenant sur les aiguilles les 15 premières m du tour précédent + les 15 dernières mailles que vous avez tricoté soit un total de 30 m pour le talon (et 20 m en attente pour le dessus du pied). Bon tricot!

Tere! Kas siis alguses peab tegema 171 silmust? Või 63?

Please give me more directions on knitting the diagram A. Is this pattern repeated every 10th stitch around and every 3th row?

DROPS Design 12.06.2018 kl. 06:54:

Dear Barbara! We start A.1 when we have 50-50-60 stitches. There is now room for 5-5-6 repeats of 10 stitches around the sock (first size: 10 stitches of the diagram A.1 x 5 repeats = 50 stitches). Continue A.1 until the piece measures approx. 18-20-22 cm from the heel marker. Happy knitting!
