CLASS REGISTRATION: Toe-Up Socks
Sometimes you have a limited amount of yarn... sometimes you're not quiiiiite sure how big your sock target's foot is... sometimes, you want to try your socks on for best fit as you go. If any of these statements hold true for your sock projects, then toe-up socks are an excellent candidate for a new sock technique for you to learn. Using the Towanda Socks pattern by Heather Hill, you'll learn Judy's Magic Cast-On and work a gusset-and-flap toe-up sock in a DK-weight yarn. We'll meet on 2 Sundays, 2 weeks apart, which will give you time to knit the foot and gusset increases (Class 1 / homework) before proceeding to the heel turn and flap (Class 2) and completing the sock leg.
CLASS DATES: Sundays, October 13 & 27, 1 - 3 PM
- Prerequisite skills: working in the round, knitting, purling, binding off, basic increases, basic decreases
