Sock Skills: Binding Off
Friday, October 16, 2020
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM (EDT)
Stretchy bind-offs are crucial to sock wearability! In this class, you'll learn several great options for finishing your sock tops, including Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off, Elizabeth Zimmerman's Sewn Bind-Off, and several others. We'll also talk about ribbing choices and some tricks to perfect your finished project. 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.
All Levels Welcome

Students should be able to cast on, knit, purl, and work in the round.
Make 2 circular swatches in your choice of yarn/needles as described above. For each, cast on 20 stitches in the round and work four rows. Leave the stitches live and do not cut the yarn.
I will provide a handout.
