Introduction to Sock Knitting Using Magic Loop



In this class, we will step into the world of hand knitted socks! Learn the “Magic Loop” technique to create a top-down ribbed sock with a heel flap and gusset construction that ends with a star toe. We will use DK weight yarn to magnify our work , and allow us to move a bit more efficiently through learning techniques for socks. These are squishy, cozy socks to wear around the house or in your boots.

Week 1: Stretchy cast on, setting up magic loop, start ribbing and leg
Week 2: Heel flap, heel turn
Week 3: Picking up gusset stitches, gusset decreases
Week 4: Foot of sock, finishing toe
