Sock Skills: Casting On for Toe-Up Socks
Thursday, October 15, 2020
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM (EDT)

Knitting socks from the toe up is a simple way to make socks without referring to a pattern, counting or measuring. In this class, you'll learn Judy's Magic Cast On for toe-up socks, learning to cast on for one sock, then extending the technique so you can work two at the same time. We'll cover several different options for increasing through the toe area as well as how to know when it's time to stop increasing. Note: This class can be taken on its own as a standalone class, or combined with my two other Sock Skills classes for a complete experience of the skills you need to knit toe-up socks.

Supplies Students Need
Sock yarn wound into two cakes or balls (each should be 50g if you are going to continue this into full socks, or if you are just practicing you can work with 5-10g each) and two short (16'-24') circular needles in a size appropriate to the sock yarn (US #1-3).
OR if you prefer to learn on bigger yarn bring a larger yarn and two short (16"-24") circular needles in a size appropriate to your chosen yarn; scissors, 2 stitch markers.
