In this session, we dive deep into different types of heels and toes used in socks. I’ll talk through the construction and features of 6 or 7 different types of heel turns and a variety of toe shapings, for both toe-up and top-down socks. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of each, focusing on issues of fit and wear. We’ll discuss how they can be used and adjusted to address specific fitting and size requirements, with details on building a sock from the ground up and adjusting existing patterns. Students will leave the class with a full set of templates for custom-fit heels and toes, and an expanded understanding of sock construction.
