Lucy's Craftsy Classes


My First Socks

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.

Foundations of Double Knitting

Designer, author and colorful personality Lucy Neatby will introduce you to the fun and challenge of double knitting. Lucy unravels the enigma behind the technique that allows you to knit two layers simultaneously on the same needles. She couples humor with a great love of knitting as she guides you through traditional and tubular cast-ons and bind-offs. Practice double knitting on double-pointed needles and in the round. Learn to create parallel increases and decreases, pockets, sock heels and more. Knit in one color or two colors at the same time. Your double knitting creations will be so nice, you’ll knit them twice!
