In this class you will knit a small sock and learn all the basic techniques you need to know to make cuff down socks! Make another and call them baby booties, or move right on to a pattern for adult sized socks. You’ll know how to figure the length of the cuff, work the heel, pick up stitches, work the gusset, decrease for the toes and close up the toe stitches seamlessley. Sock knitting is great for summer travel – one ball of sock yarn is light and small and can keep you knitting for many happy hours!
