Are you ready to explore a whole new adventure? Try the toe up sock! To some, toe up socks are a favorite - they fit well, have a looser cuff, and seem to be slightly less stressful. In this 3-part class, we’ll go through the basics of toe-up socks - starting first with working back and forth in short rows for the toe (and a provisional cast-on!), and moving on to working in the round on dpns, magic loop, or two circs. From there, we’ll work the foot and talk about methods for working the short-row heel. Finally, we’ll talk through one of the most useful bind-offs: the graft off. If we have time and if students are able to do both socks at the same time, we’ll touch on the afterthought heel too! Students who have taken the top down sock class are welcome, as well as new students, as new techniques will be introduced in this class. We will have a ton of fun - join us!
