Knit Original Toe-Up Socks

with Donna Druchunas
Say goodbye to seaming and knit your socks from the toe up! Combine the shaping, stitch patterns, heels and toes you prefer into the design you want.

Embrace the time-tested method of toe-up knitting! Join popular instructor Donna Druchunas, and learn how to create your own seamless sock design by mixing and matching different features. Start class by learning about the anatomy of a sock before moving on to the shaping and stitch patterns you can use. For toes, Donna will lay out the steps to the moccasin toe, the wedge toe and the short row toe. When you move on, you'll discover how to create afterthought heels, gusset heels and short row heels. Want to ensure sock success before you start? Donna will guide you through taking accurate measurements and planning your sock using an included worksheet. Plus, you'll learn great tips and tricks for polished finishing and receive three free patterns included with class!
