Socks! You can’t have too many of them, and they make appreciated gifts too. Sock patterns seem tricky but once learned a sock is a satisfying and very portable project. We will learn the skills of picking up stitches, and shaping the heel, instep and the toe.
Materials: 2.00 - 2.75 mm double pointed needles and/or 9" circulars and fingering / sock weight yarn.
Required experience: Intermediate. Students must be experienced and comfortable with double pointed needles or short circular needles before taking this class.
Knit 'top-down', these socks are cast on at the cuff, then worked in the round to the heel.
The heel is formed by working the heel flap back and forth in rows, then the heel turn is shaped by short rows which decrease and 'turn' the corner.
Stitches are picked up along the sides of the heel flap, the work is joined into the round again, and the gusset is worked in decreasing rounds.
The foot is worked in the round to the toe which is shaped decreases, then seamed closed using kitchener stitch (also known as grafting).
