Custom Toe Up Socks

Socks may look complicated to knit, but by the end of this workshop taught by Tabetha Hedrick, you’ll be able to knit a pair of toe-up socks at any gauge, using any yarn.
Course
Materials

Learn, step by step, everything you need to know about knitting toe-up socks using any yarn and for any size foot. If you’ve seen how fun, portable and satisfying sock knitting can be, and want to learn how to make them yourself, then this is the course for you. Once you get the sock bug, it never lets go!

In this workshop you’ll learn:

  • taking measurements and how to calculate the numbers to get a perfect fitting sock.
  • sock anatomy and how to knit a faux circular gauge swatch.
  • Judy’s Magic Cast On technique.
  • how to shape the toe, work gusset increases and knit a short row heel.
  • how to work an elastic bind off, and so much more!
