Sock knitting done on two circular needles instead of double-pointed needles! This course teaches you how to make the heel flap, turn the heel, pickup stitches to knit the gusset, and graft the toe. Because we're using chunky yarn, your socks knit up faster and you'll be able to start the 2nd sock as well. Optional: learn a tubular cast-on method.
