2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Always wanted to knit a sock? Too scared because everyone says turning a heel is hard? What utter rot! Just like anything else, turning a heel on a sock is only One Stitch at a Time. I’ll steer you through the whole process of knitting a traditional cuff-down heel-flap-and-gusset-style sock. You’ll learn about Ge-sock-raphy, that’s the geography of a sock, and how you can play with the different parts of it, tweaking it to give you the perfect fit every time. Together, we’ll create a perfect little miniature sock, with all the elements of a full-sized one. We’ll cover all the techniques you need, including working a slip-stitch heel flap, picking up stitches the correct way, handy hints for tidying up your lines of decreases, and a full tutorial on the Kitchener graft to close the toe seamlessly.
Please note: This class is designed for people using the magic loop technique. It IS possible to to it all using DPNs, but you will have to do a little bit of translating for yourself. Use of magic loop is recommended.
Technique Requirements: The ability cast on in the round, knit and purl. Knowledge of magic loop highly recommended.
