Toe-Up Socks with Wedge Toe and Short-Row Heel - a workshop with Ann Budd: SU Mar 26, 10 am - 5 pm
|Availability:||In stock (12)|
Most knitters learn to knit socks from the cuff down to the toe, but they can also be knitted in the opposite direction—from toe up to the cuff, eliminating the need to pick up stitches for the gusset or work the dreaded Kitchener stitch. Learn to knit socks from the toe up using an Eastern cast-on, short-row heel, and flexible sewn bind-off. You will make a small sock to learn all of the skills in one day and leave ready to knit socks in a variety of sizes and yarn weights.
One six hour workshop.
This workshop will break for one hour mid day for lunch. Students will be provided with local recommendations or should fee free to bring a lunch with them.
Advanced beginner - must be comfortable working on double pointed needles or suitable substitute
Tightly twisted sport-, DK-, or worsted-weight wool yarn (you’ll use just part of a ball); a set of double-pointed needles in a size appropriate for your yarn (two circulars or the “magic loop” method can be substituted if you’re comfortable making the conversion from instructions written for double-pointed needles); tapestry needle; Summer 2007 issue of Interweave Knits (optional).
