My First Socks

with Lucy Neatby
My First Socks
Put a handmade spring in your step as you knit your first, favorite pair of socks. Use yarns you love to make beautiful, comfortable socks with step-by-step guidance.

Learn how to knit socks with designer and author Lucy Neatby. Find out how to cast on with perfect tension. Knit in the round using your favorite method and choose one of four style variations for your ribbed cuff. Work your sock leg in stockinette with no gaps, before creating a heel flap that's shaped to curve gently around the back of your foot. Finish the sides of your heel flap, and decrease in the round until you reach your original number of stitches. Get the perfect foot length, and shape the toe for a great fit using a technique that makes grafting a breeze. Finish your socks with techniques for closing holes, fixing any imperfect stitches and more. Knit cute, cozy socks you can't wait to pull on.

Praise for Lucy Neatby's Foundations of Double Knitting:

"I loved this class. Lucy Neatby breaks down all of the techniques needed to master double knitting in a very easy to understand manner. I have tried following double knitting patterns before and had trouble visualizing the techniques. With this class there was no need to try to interpret the written instructions, I could play and replay the instructions as often as I needed. I was able to complete a double knitted scarf that turned out better than I could have hoped. Now I will be going back to use some of the patterns that were included with the class!"
