Have you ever wanted to crochet socks before? Maybe you’ve hesitated because you aren’t sure that they would be comfortable or fit well. Or maybe you just aren’t sure where to start. In this class crochet designer, Brenda K. B. Anderson, walks you through how to crochet a basic sock, from the toe up. This class is suitable for anyone looking to expand their crochet skills to sock-making- even those newer to crochet. If you are comfortable holding your hook, making basic stitches, and reading a simple crochet pattern, you will be able to learn to make basic socks by taking this class!

This class includes two patterns for socks in child and adult sizes: the Lakeside Cabin Socks, which are quick to make in a worsted weight yarn, and the Northwoods Socks, designed in a fingering weight yarn to fit inside your shoes. These two designs are constructed in the same way and use the same stitches. So you can learn how they are constructed while making the worsted weight socks first, and once you are comfortable with the process, you can work up the fingering version. Watch while Brenda creates the Lakeside Cabin Socks, step-by-step, and you will see how easy it can be to make your very own pair!

In this class you will learn two of Brenda’s favorite stitches for making a well-fitting sock: the extended single crochet, which is stretchy and smooth for the body of the sock, and her favorite kind of ribbing for ultimate stretch at the top of the sock. She will show you how to work in the round beginning with a foundation chain. You will see how to shape the heel gussets using increases and decreases and will learn about how to make simple modifications to the pattern for a better fit. Brenda gives you plenty of tips as she demonstrates how to create the join-as-you-go ribbing and an “afterthought-style” heel.

The projects that you will make from this class are truly a treat for your feet! With more than 1 ½ hours of clear video instruction, you’ll be making your own socks in no time!
