Class Overview

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.
