Students will be required to wear masks to attend this class.
You’ve worked a few socks, now it’s time to expand your skills a bit. In this class you’ll learn how to determine size and fit needs, 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.
Work about 1 inch of (k1, p1) ribbing in the round on 36 stitches with medium-weight yarn, using 4–5mm/US #6–8 needles in your preferred configuration for sock knitting.
Homework swatch with yarn attached. Also bring a tape measure and calculator/app.
