Pattern Description

Decreases on the heel

Row 1 (front side): knit a row until 9-9-9-11 loops remain, remove the next loop as if we knit the front loop, put it on a knitting needle, turn around and knit on the reverse side;

Row 2 (wrong side): we knit a row until 9-9-9-11 loops remain, remove the next loop as if we knit the wrong side, put it on a knitting needle, turn it around and knit it on the reverse side;

Row 3 (front side): knit a row until 8-8-8-10 loops remain, remove the next loop as if we knit the front loop, put it on a knitting needle, turn around and knit on the reverse side;

Row 4 (wrong side): we knit a row until 8-8-8-10 loops remain, remove the next loop as if we knit the wrong side, put it on a knitting needle, turn it around and knit it on the reverse side.

We remove the next loop as the front, we sew the front one, remove the removed unrolled loop from the spokes, turn around.

We continue to reduce the number of loops in the same way until the loops on additional knitting needles end, that is, until 8-8-10-10 loops remain on the spoke.

French knot

In the place where there should be a bundle we pass a needle with a thread with a purl to the front side. We place the needle parallel to the fabric of the product and, pulling the thread, wind the thread around the needle 3 times, waving from the tail of the needle to the tip. Let's put the tip of the needle in the place where the knot should be, as close as possible to the thread coming out from there, but not in the same place. We stretch the needle with the thread, and fasten it on the reverse side.

Scheme Directions:

  • red;
  • white;
  • Anthracite
  • orange (embroidered with orange thread on top of white)
  • A place for embroidering buttons (French knot)

Size:  32/34-35/37-38/40-1/43; footlength:19-22-24-27cm;  toe length: 19 -20-20-21 cm.

Knitting description

Knit a circle with knitting needles from the top of the sock down. We type 52-52-56-64 loops on the stocking knitting needles No. 3 with a red thread. We make the first row of facial, then continue the elastic band 2 to 2. When the elastic band is 4-4.5-5-6 cm, we sew 1 row of facial, cutting 4-4-8-4 loops evenly per circle, there will be 48-48-48- 60 loops. We change the needles for stocking needles number 3.5.

Next, we work on the scheme for all loops. Get 4-4-4-5 reps per lap. After we finish, we leave the first 12-12-13-15 loops on the spoke, move the next 24-24-22-30 to the knitting pin (this will be lifted) and on the next spoke we leave the last 12-12-13-15 loops . It turns out 24-24-26-30 loops for the heel.

Now the garter stitch, back and forth, knit 4.5-5-5.5-6 cm with a red thread. Insert a marker. We start the decrease on the heel (see the reduction on the heel). After all decreases, select 10-10-12-10 loops on each side of the heel and transfer the loops of the auxiliary knitting pin to the knitting needle. The total will be 52-52-56-60 loops.

Insert markers on each side 24-24-24-32 loops to determine the middle of the lift (upper part of the foot).

We continue stocking knitting in a circle, simultaneously diminishing on each side: we knit the front 2 loops together, then 24-24-24-32 loops and again 2 loops together as facial loops, but in the opposite direction before 24-24-24- 32 loops. Repeat the decrease on every second round 4 times (= 44-44-48-52). Through 15.5-18.5-20.5-23 cm from the marker from the heel (it will remain approximately 3.5-3.5-3.5-4 cm). We knit one circle with facial ones.

Now we insert one marker on each side through 22-22-24-26 loops, denoting the top of the foot and the bottom. We continue to knit a stocking knit, removing for both sides of the token from both markers, starting with 3 loops to the marker: we knit together 2 loops with facial, then 2 facial loops (the marker will be between these two loops), then, we again knit together 2 loops with facial only in the opposite direction. We repeat the decrease in each second row only 3-3-3-4 times and then in each row 6-6-7-7 times. There should be 8 loops on the needles. Cut the thread, stretch it through the remaining loop, tighten and fasten.

We embroider with an orange thread 5 loops of a nose on each snowman.Embroider snowman buttons with a French knot (see French knot).

The second sock is knitted in the same way.
