With so many different ways to knit socks, how do you know which one is right for you? In this class, sock knitter Jen Lucas walks you through her favorite way to knit socks – top-down with the magic loop method, using a single long circular needle instead of double-pointed needles. She begins with reviewing the basic construction of a sock and demonstrates how to work a loose cast-on to start the sock. She shows you just how easy it is to work the magic loop method and shares her tips and tricks for working the technique when knitting socks.

Throughout the class, Jen shares her expertise on how to customize the sock any way you like. She shows you the German short row heel, and finishes the sock with Kitchener stitch. Jen also discusses sock yarn and how to properly measure a sock to fit the recipient.

With an hour of instruction and two PDF patterns, one for worsted-weight socks and one for fingering-weight socks, you’ll be off and running with sock knitting in no time!
