EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

PATTERN: 
See diagram A.1. Find your size in the diagram.

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

SOCKS - SHORT SUMMARY OF THE WORK:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, top down.

SOCK:
Cast on 64-72-80 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and Fabel. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= purl 1 / knit 1) for 2-3-4 cm. Now work pattern as follows: Work A.1 (find your size in the diagram = 33-37-41 stitches), continue with rib as before over the remaining stitches. Repeat the pattern in height. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When you have worked 3 repeats of A.1 in height (the piece measures approx. 14-15-16 cm) work as follows: Work A.1 as before over the first 33-37-41 stitches and place these stitches on 1 thread (= top of foot), then knit over the 31-35-39 heel stitches where you decrease 5-7-9 stitches evenly spaced = 26-28-30 stitches on heel.
Work stocking stitch back and forth for 5-5½-6 cm. Insert 1 marker in the middle of the row - THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Now work HEEL DECREASE - read description above. When the heel decrease is finished, knit up 13-15-16 stitches on each side of the heel and the 33-37-41 stitches from the thread are placed back on the needles = 73-81-89 stitches. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 33-37-41 stitches on top of foot. Continue A.1 over the stitches on top of foot and knit the stitches under the foot. AT THE SAME TIME on the first round decrease in each side as follows: Knit twisted together the last 2 stitches before the first marker on top of foot and knit together the first 2 stitches after the second marker on top of foot (= 2 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 9-10-12 times = 55-61-65 stitches. Continue until the piece measures 18-19-21 cm, but adjust so that you finish after a complete repeat of A.1 in height. Then work rib (= knit 1 / purl 1) on top of foot until the piece measures 18-19-21 cm (there is now approx. 4-5-6 cm left to finished length). Insert 1 marker in each side of the sock so that there are 27-31-33 stitches on top of foot and 28-30-32 stitches under the foot. Now continue with knit to finished length and decrease to toe on each side of the markers as follows: Before the markers: Knit 2 together. After the markers: Knit 2 twisted together (= 4 stitches decreased each time). Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 4-7-9 times and then every round a total of 6-3-2 times = 15-21-21 stitches left on the needles. On the next round knit all stitches together 2 and 2 until there is 1 stitch left, knit 1 = 8-11-11 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. Work the other sock in the same way.

Det står att om man vill ha storlek 38/40 ska man ha totalt 72 maskor (på fyra stickor). Detta blir då 18 maskor på varje sticka. Men i diagrammet står det att det ska vara 37 maskor på två stickor men det blir bara 36 maskor (18+18=36). Hur läser jag detta?

DROPS Design 23.11.2018 kl. 10:01:

Hei Nadja. Det stemmer at du skal fordele maskene over 4 pinner, og hvordan du deler dem blir opp til deg - dette har ikke noe å si for hvilke masker som inngår i A.1. Det strikkes jo rundt, så om A.1 går over 2 pinner gjør ikke dette noe. Når det er sagt: Du strikker kun A.1 over de 37 maskene foran på leggen/oppå foten, resten av maskene strikkes i vrangbord. Når A.1 er strikket 1 gang i høyden, begynner du på nytt, på samme sted slik at A.1 fortsetter nedover foten. God fornøyelse.

Hallo!\r\nIch verstricke sehr gerne die Drops Wolle!!\r\nIm Moment bin ich im Sockenwahn und verschenke sehr viele. Jedoch gibt es einige die finden die Sockenwolle ( fabel, Flora, Nord) zu kratzig. Die Merinowolle ist etwas zu dick. Gibt es denn Sockenwolle mit Merinoanteil oder wird es die bald geben???\r\nVielen Dank für die Hilfe

"Weiterarbeiten, bis die Arbeit eine Länge von 18-19-21 cm hat, daran angepasst, dass nach einem ganzen Rapport A.1 in der Höhe geendet wird, dann die Fußrücken-Maschen im Rippenmuster weiterstricken (= 1 Masche rechts/ 1 Masche links), bis die Arbeit eine Länge von 18-19-21 cm hat (es fehlen nun noch ca4-5-6 cm vor dem fertigen Maß)." - nicht ganz klar, wie lange mit dem Rippenmuster nach dem letzten ganzen Rapport A.1. zu stricken (18-19-21 cm zweimal angegeben). Danke!

DROPS Design 08.08.2018 kl. 08:17:

Liebe Ekaterina, Sie stricken A.1 bis die Arbeit 18-19-21 cm misst, aber nach einem ganzen A.1 anpassen, sollte A.1 früher enden, dann im Rippenmuster weiterstricken bis die Arbeit 18-19-21 cm misst. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Diagrammet har väl 35 maskor i strl 38/40? Skulle man ha lagt till en rm på varje sida eller?

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 10:57:

Hei Sara. 38/40 er den midterste klammen, og her er det 37 masker. Mønsteret begynner og avsluttes med en vrangamaske. God fornøyelse.
