Custom Fit Socks (Knit Toe Up)
When you knit socks from the toe to the top you can use every scrap of yarn in your ball and never have to worry about running out too soon. This is what makes this sock knitting technique so attractive. In this 3-session class discover all the ins and outs of toe-up sock construction including seamless toes, short row heels, and stretchy bind offs for comfortable fits. In this class you will delve into calculations and formulations for knitting bespoke socks, custom fit for you or anyone else you know. Use any weight of yarn and any size of needle.
