You’ve worked a few socks, now it’s time to expand your skills a bit. In this class you’ll learn how determine size and fit needs—and adjust a pattern to make it perfect. We’ll talk about how to choose a good yarn and reinforce for longevity. We’ll address the tricky bits, like how to avoid holes at the top of your heel, how to get a tidy gusset pick-up, and special cast-ons and bind-offs. We’ll talk about both toe-up and top-down socks, and discuss different heel and toe constructions—and when to choose one over another.
