Knit Original Toe-Up Socks

with Donna Druchunas
Knit Original Toe-Up Socks
Toe-up knitting is an ancient technique that's attracting new fans. Create your own sock design with different shaping and stitch patterns.

Say goodbye forever to the Kitchener stitch and embrace toe-up knitting, an ancient technique that's quickly gaining new fans. Donna shows you how to create your own sock design by combining different heels and toes with beautiful stitch patterns. Three bonus sock patterns are included. Warm and cozy and cute - that's what your feet will be when you put them in hand-knit socks. Inspired, happy and proud - that's how you'll feel when you're the one who knit them by hand. Ready, willing, and able - that's what Craftsy is when it comes to helping you knit socks from the toe up!
