This class will give you the skills you need to knit socks two at a time with confidence. We will cover all aspects, from casting on and setting up (both toe-up and cuff-down methods will be covered) to yarn management techniques to avoid ending up in a tangled mess while working. We will also cover how to work the heels using this method as well as discuss other tips and tricks to help make two-at-a-time sock knitting a breeze. We will practice all of this with mini socks in the class.
