Toe-up socks are all the rage! Why toe-up? By starting at the toe, no grafting is required! Also, there is no need to fret over yardage since the leg is knit from the bottom up until the yarn is gone! Students MUST HAVE previous magic loop and sock experience. This class is a perfect follow up to our Beginning Sock class.
During the first class, students learn a special cast on for the toe and begin knitting a simple, classic design for the foot. In the second class, students learn a classic wrap & turn short-row heel technique.
Fingering Weight Yarn – 400-450 yards
Note on choosing yarn: Pattern and stitches show up best in SOLID, LIGHT colors.
