If you know how to knit in the round, all you need to learn to knit a pair of socks is how to turn a heel and finish the toe. It is easier than you think and works like magic! In this class, you will learn all the parts of a traditional top-down heel and the math to be able to knit it for any sock with any weight of yarn. Then Sarah will guide you step-by-step as you knit a practice heel together, then decrease for the toe and graft it to finish it. 

Homework and required materials: Using a worsted weight yarn and a US size 6 or 7 in your favorite way to knit in the round (double-points, Magic Loop, or 2 circulars), cast on 28 sts, join to knit in the round and knit for 1-2 inches of ribbing and 1-2 inches of stockinette. Bring a calculator and writing materials to class.

Class level: advanced beginner--must have experience knitting in the round either with double points, magic loop, or two circulars.

Minimum # of students: 1

Instructor: Sarah Walworth

Sarah first learned to knit as a child from her mom, but re-learned as an adult when she needed a way to keep her hands busy. It quickly cascaded into re-writing patterns to fit her, learning innovative techniques, and trying all different ways to tension the yarn. She now makes her living as a knitting technical editor and loves to pass on the craft to whomever she can get to hold needles and yarn for a few minutes.
