If you' ve always wanted to learn the time-honoured tradition of sock knitting, and are ready to work on double-pointed needles and learn the Kitchener stitch, this is the class for you! This course teaches you how to make the heel flap, turn the heel, pick up stitches to knit the gusset, and graft the toe. Because you're using chunky yarn, your socks knit up faster and you'll be able to start the 2nd sock as well. This class uses the "top down" approach to sock knitting.
