Interested in delving into the wild world of socks? Or maybe you want to learn a new heel technique or knit a sock from a different direction (top down or toe up!). This class is all about exploring the different ways to make a sock. We’ll talk about how to measure your foot, what kind of fibers work best for socks, and the different styles of small-circumference knitting. We’ll also explore different types of heels and toes. First-time sock knitters or those looking to explore magic loop or flexible double-pointed needles for the first time can choose a top-down sock with just enough texture to keep things interesting - Seasons Socks. Those looking to explore the world of toe-up socks - DRK Everyday Socks are for you. For more adventurous sock knitters, there’s adding colors - Curio Socks.
