Socks are such a fun project and you can learn to knit them as well! Many of us here at Mother Knitter love having socks for on-the-go knitting and we hope that after this class you’ll love them as much as we do. Socks in this class will be knit toe-up using the Magic Loop method of circular knitting. You will learn a version of a short-row heel called the Fish Lips Kiss Heel by Sox Therapist Designs. This pattern gives directions on how to make a cardboard cut out of your foot to knit perfect-fitting socks. Students should make this cutout prior to the start of class.
Skills required: How to knit and purl, and basic knowledge of increasing. Students should be comfortable working with fingering weight yarn and small needle sizes.
Materials: Fish Lips Kiss Heel pattern by Sox Therapist Designs
US1/2.25mm 30-40″ circular needle
Approx 100 grams fingering weight yarn
Yarn recommendations: Hedgehog Fibers, Sandnes Garn Sisu, Beachy Breeze BoardWalk Sock, or Urth Yarns Uneek Sock Sets
