Knitting socks is incredibly rewarding. This timeless garment requires ingenious shaping, but they are not as hard as they look. Take your knitting everywhere. In this quick study of socks we will knit some basic socks using worsted weight yarn (or DK) to allow us to quickly move to the heel.
We'll be using the Rye pattern from Tin Can Knits
Day 1: We'll discuss sock construction, yarn, needles, and mechanics. We will knit cuff and begin heel flap.
Day 2: Turning the heel and working the foot.
