EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Find your size in the diagrams (applies to A.3 and A.4).

HEEL DECREASE:
ROW 1 (right side): Knit until there are 7-8-7 stitches left, slip the next stitch 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 7-8-7 stitches left, slip the next stitch 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 6-7-6 stitches left, slip the next stitch 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 6-7-6 stitches left, slip the next stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over the purled stitch, turn the piece.
Continue to decrease like this by working until there is 1 less stitch left before slipping the next stitch and until there are 13-11-11 stitches left on the needle.
DECREASE TIP (for toe):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the 3 middle stitches in A.2 as follows: Work until there is 1 stitch left before A.2, knit 2 together with medium grey, work the 3 middle stitches in A.2 as before, knit the next 2 stitches twisted together with medium grey (= 2 stitches decreased).

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SOCK - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, top down.

SOCK:
Cast on 56-60-64 stitches with double pointed needles size 3 mm and red. Work 8 rounds in stocking stitch. Then work a round of holes (= folding edge) as follows: * Knit 2 together, make 1 yarn over *, repeat from *-* to end of round.
Change to medium grey and work A.1 in the round (= 14-15-16 repeats of 4 stitches). When A.1 has been completed the piece measures approx. 6 cm from the cast-on edge.
The next round is worked as follows: A.2 (= 5 stitches), A.3 (= 23-25-27 stitches), A.2 (= 5 stitches) and A.4 (= 23-25-27 stitches). Continue this pattern. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the last round in A.4 remains, decrease 2 stitches evenly spaced over the 23-25-27 stitches in A.4 (the other stitches are worked as before without decreases) = 54-58-62 stitches and the piece measures approx. 15 cm from the cast-on edge.
Place the stitches in A.2 + A.3 + A.2 on a thread (= 33-35-37 stitches on top of foot on thread).
There are now 21-23-25 stitches on the needle for the heel. Cast on 1 new stitch at the beginning of the row with medium grey and then work A.5a over the first 20-22-24 stitches on the heel, work A.5b (= 1 stitch) and cast on 1 new stitch at the end of the row with medium grey – the new stitches are edge stitches and worked with medium grey. Continue A.5a/A.5b back and forth over these 23-25-27 stitches. When you have worked 5½-6-6 cm over the heel stitches insert 1 marker in the middle of the row. Then work HEEL DECREASE – see description above (A.5 is continued at the same time as you decrease to heel).
After the heel decrease work the next round as follows: Continue A.5 over the 13-11-11 heel stitches as before, knit up 11-13-14 stitches along the side of the heel, continue A.2 + A.3 + A.2 as before over the 33-35-37 stitches from the thread and knit up 11-13-14 stitches along the other side of the heel = 68-72-76 stitches. Continue this pattern with A.5 under the foot, A.3 on top of foot and A.2 in each side. AT THE SAME TIME decrease on each side of the middle 31-33-35 stitches on top of foot as follows:
Knit together the 2 last stitches before the middle 31-33-35 stitches on top of foot using medium grey and knit twisted together the first 2 stitches after the middle 31-33-35 stitches using medium grey. Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 6 times = 56-60-64 stitches. Continue this pattern until the piece measures 17-19-22 cm from the marker on the heel (there is now approx. 5 cm left to finished length; you can try the sock on and continue to desired length if necessary).

Then finish the piece as follows: Continue patterns A.5a/A.5b as before over the stitches under the foot, work A.2 in the side, A.5a over the next 22-24-26 stitches on top of foot, work A.5b (= 1 stitch), continue A.2 in the side and A.5a over the remaining stitches under the foot.
When the piece measures 18-20-23 cm from the marker in the heel, decrease to toe on each side of the middle 3 stitches in A.2 in each side – read DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this each round a total of 10-11-12 times = 16 stitches. On the next round knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 8 stitches. Cut the strands, pull them through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the top edge of the sock to the wrong side and sew down neatly with small stitches – make sure that the seam is not tight.

Work the other sock in the same way.

Jeg har nå gjort hælfellinga som det står i mønstret med utgangspunkt i de 27 maskene på den største størrelsen. Da gjenstår det på pinnen 15 masker og ikke 11, som det står i mønstret. Hva er feil denne gangen?

Bittelina 09.12.2018 - 12:04:

Når jeg på siste omgang feller ei maske i hver A4 og skal sette A2+A4+A2 på en tråd får jeg 36 masker og ikke 37 som mønstret sier. Da har jeg igjen 26 masker og ikke 25 masker til hælen som mønstret sier. Hvor er feilen?

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 07:57:

Hei Bittelina. De maskene som settes på en tråd er A.2 (=5 masker) +A.3(=27 masker) +A.2(=5 masker). 5+27+5 = 37 masker på en tråd. Det gjenstår nå 25 masker på pinnen. Når du skal strikke hælfelling strikker du til det gjenstår 7 masker på pinnenen, feller, snur og strikker tiol det gjenstår 7 masker på pinnen i den andre siden. Du fortsetter å felle i hver side til du har felt alle de 7 maskene i hver side. Du har da felt totalt 14 masker og har 11 masker igjen på pinnen. God fornøyelse

Tolle Anleitungen! Aber stehten die Diagramme hier nicht auf dem Kopf? LG

Liebe Frau Möller, die Diagramme werden immer von unten nach oben gelesen, und die Socken werden von oben nach unten gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
