Do you mourn your drawer full of handknit socks during the warm summer months? Or do you just want quick and easy socks to wear with your Danskos, Chucks, or clogs? They’re also really good for just kicking around the house, and they use up leftover yarn really well. In this class we’ll go over the techniques you need to work this pattern including the provisional cast-on, make 1 left & right, short rows (including the shadow wrap method), how to work a short row heel, and how to pick up stitches. We’ll make a small version of the sock to demonstrate all the techniques that you can apply to this sock formula to make footies for yourself and all your buds. Pattern included with the class.
