Join Kaity for this 3-part class which will teach you to knit socks cuff-down on 9” circular needles with a contrasting heel and toe. You will learn how to do a German Twisted cast on, knit in the round on 9" circular needles, measure for a perfect fit, create a heel flap and gusset in a contrasting color, work decreases, and knit a rounded toe complete with a kitchener stitch (it’s not as hard as it seems, promise!). This pattern has an easy-to-memorize texture pattern and looks great in just about anything: speckled, tonal, variegated… so grab whatever your heart loves!
Price of class also includes one additional, outside-of-class lesson (usually used to finish the heel turn/gusset pick up)
Part one: cast on, sizing, knitting the leg
Part two: heel flap, heel turn, and gusset
Part three: checking length, toe decreases, kitchener stitch
