Top Down Socks



We'll use Tin Can Knits' simple but elegant Rye sock pattern to teach the basics of top down sock construction. Techniques include stretchy cast on, heel flaps, short row heel turns, gusset pick up and decreases, and the important Kitchener stitch for grafting the toe (and a little history on this useful skill). Along the way you'll build confidence in reading your knitting and fixing mistakes, and learn tips for choosing a good sock yarn and caring for your socks.
Skill Level:
Knit in the round, decreasing.
