Toe-Up Socks, 2 @ a Time

Description

In this knitting class, we will be knitting a pair of socks on circular needles two at a time from the toe up.  Socks make great gifts and are a very portable knitting project since they are small and can be tucked in your purse which means you can knit a few rows while you’re waiting.  Why toe up?  Toe up socks can be tried on while you work so you can adjust the fit.  Why 2 @ a time?  When you are finished this knitting project you will have a pair of socks and won’t have to try to make another one that matches.  This class is for the experienced beginner.  A materials list will be provided.

 

Techniques used on this project:

  1. Judy’s Magic Cast on, I like to call it figure 8’s
  2. Knitting in the round
  3. Creating a Fleegle heel
  4. Knit them as tall or short as you like
  5. Stretchy Bind off
