EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. Choose diagram for your size.

KNITTING TIP (applies to heel):
To get a stronger heel the entire heel and heel decrease can be worked in 2 strands as follows: 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:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit until 7-7-8 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch knitted, turn piece.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Purl until 7-7-8 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch purled, turn piece.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit until 6-6-7 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch knitted, turn piece.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Purl until 6-6-7 stitches remain, slip next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch purled, turn piece.
Continue decrease like this with 1 stitch less before each decrease until there are 12-14-14 stitches on needle.

DECREASE TIP-2:
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker, knit 2 together, marker, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

SOCKS - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles, from the top and down to toes.

SOCK:
Cast on 60-64-66 stitches on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with Lima. Knit 1 round.
Work next round as follows: Work A.1A (= 3-5-6 stitches), A.2A (= 8 stitches), A.3A (= 15 stitches), A.2A (= 8 stitches), A.4A (= 15 stitches), A.2A (= 8 stitches) and finish with A.5A (= 3-5-6 stitches). Repeat A.1A and A.5A vertically until piece measures 4 cm.
Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work A.1B over A.1A, A.2B over A.2A, A.3B over A.3A, A.4B over A.4A and A.5B over A.5A. Continue this pattern. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1B to A.5B have been worked, there are 53-57-59 stitches on round.
Then work as follows: Work A.1C over A.1B, A.2C over A.2B, A.3C over A.3B, A.4C over A.4B and A.5C over A.5B. Work A.1C to A.5C 2-2-3 times in total vertically. Piece measures approx. 20-20-23 cm.
Work next round as follows:
Knit 0-2-2, purl 1-1-2, knit 9, work A.3C (= 12 stitches), A.2C (= 9 stitches) and A.4C (= 12 stitches) as before, knit 9, purl 1-1-2 and knit 0-2-2-.
Work next round as follows:
Knit 5-7-8, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased), knit 6-5-5, work A.6A (= 27-29-29 stitches) – continue on correct round in diagram, knit 6-5-5, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased) and knit 5-7-8 = 51-55-57 stitches.
Then repeat A.6A (= 27-29-29 stitches), work the remaining stitches in stocking stitch. Now keep the first 12-13-14 stitches on needle for heel, slip the next 27-29-29 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= mid on top of foot) and keep the last 12-13-14 stitches on needle for heel. Read KNITTING TIP and work in stocking stitch back and forth over the 24-26-28 heel stitches for 5-5½-6 cm. Insert 1 marker in middle of row, MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Now work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above. When heel decrease is done, pick up 11-12-13 stitches on each side of heel and slip the 27-29-29 stitches from stitch holder back on needle = 61-67-69 stitches. Insert 1 marker on each side of the 27-29-29 stitches on top of foot.
Work in stocking stitch and A.6A as before and decrease on each side of the 27-29-29 stitches on top of foot as follows: Knit the last 2 stitches BEFORE first marker on top of foot together and knit the first 2 stitches AFTER last marker on top of foot twisted together. Decrease like this every other round 7-8-7 times in total = 47-51-55 stitches. Work until piece measures 17-19-21 cm from marker on heel – adjust to not finish on 3rd to 5th round in A.6A.
Now work A.6B over A.6A, continue the remaining stitches in stocking stitch. When A.6B has been worked vertically, there are 44-48-52 stitches on needles.
Continue working in stocking stitch over all stitches. Continue until piece measures approx. 18-20-22 cm from marker on heel (approx. 4-4-5 cm remain until finished measurements, try the sock on and work to desired length).
Insert 1 marker in each side of sock so that there are 22-24-26 stitches both on top of foot and under foot. Continue working and decrease for toes on each side of these two markers - read DECREASE TIP-2. Decrease like this on every other round a total of 4-4-5 times and then on every round a total of 5-6-6 times = 8 stitches remain on needles in all sizes. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. Knit another sock the same way.

Lees ik het patroon van rechts naar links?

Dag Willy, Ja, dat klopt, je begint rechts onder en leest dan van rechts naar links, dit is aan de goede kant van het werk. De teruggaande naald lees je weer van links naar rechts en zo verder. Zowel de heengaande als de teruggaande naalden zijn aangegeven in de telpatronen.
