Amy Snell: Knitting Toe-Up Socks Without a Pattern October 20, 27 and November 3
6:30 - 8 pm PT
Whether this is your first foray into sock knitting or a chance to add new skills to your knitting toolbox, you’ll come away from this class knowing how to knit socks for any foot, at any gauge, without referring to a pattern.
In this 3-part virtual class you’ll work a complete sample-sized sock as you learn how to cast on seamlessly, work short-row heels with mini gussets, integrated ribbing, and stretchy bind-offs. We’ll also cover tips for measuring the foot, adjustments for leg shaping, and how and when to add patterning. Special attention and instruction will be given to working on two circular needles, but students are welcome to use dpns or magic loop if they are already familiar with working in the round on those needle types.
Level - Intermediate: Students should know how to cast on, bind off, knit, purl, increase, decrease, and work in the round.
Supplies: At least 100 yards of worsted-weight or DK-weight yarn in a solid light color, two short (16'-24') circular needles in the size appropriate to the yarn (or if you are already comfortable with using magic loop or dpns to work in the round you are welcome to knit that way instead), tapestry needle, scissors, measuring tape, stitch markers.
