Learn how to confidently knit top- or cuff-down socks and step out in style! Socks are a great small project you can take anywhere you go. We’ll start with a discussion about proper sizing and the components of a hand knit sock. Learn techniques such as the German Twisted Cast-On, turning the heel with short row shaping, and Kitchener stitch to close up the toe. No prior sock experience is required.
