Students will be required to wear masks to attend this class.

Once you’ve tackled top-down socks, take the next step: working the other way. Learn how to make toe-up socks on double-pointed needles. We teach you everything you need to know to work toe-up, from handling the special cast-on for the toe to turning the heel to the specialized bind-offs required. Once you’ve mastered the mini, we make sure you’re equipped to get started on your first full-size sock. Along the way, we share lots of tips and techniques—choosing the right yarn, getting the right size of sock, working tidy short rows and hole-free gussets and heels. I also demonstrate Magic Loop and patterns provided permit use of both DPNs, magic loop or two circulars.

Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, be comfortable working in the round

4mm/US #6 DPNs and scrap medium-weight yarn in a light color.
