Learn the basics of classic, cuff-down sock construction. You’ll be making ankle socks tailored precisely to your foot size, measuring your feet and using Rachel’s sock generator formula during the first week’s shorter session so that you know how many stitches to cast on. During the final two longer sessions Rachel will walk you through the rest of the process, from turning your heel to tidying up your toe with kitchener stitch.
Pre-requisites: Participants should be familiar with the following: the long-tail cast-on, knitting, purling, knitting in the round (using double-points or magic loop), and binding off.
Homework: Homework: Swatch ahead of time, working to achieve a gauge of 8 stitches over 1”
• One skein of light fingering weight yarn, purchased from Spun
