Class Description: 







Does your knitting Bucket List include magic loop, toe up socks and an afterthought heel?  Master all three of these techniques in one class!

The magic loop is the slickest way to knit socks using one long circular needle and is preferred by the legion of toe up sock knitters.  The afterthought heel is a great way to add contrasting colored heels or striped heels.  The afterthought heel may be removed after many wearings and reknit – making it a perfect choice for those who tend to wear holes through their heels.

Students will create a sample sock using all the skills needed to knit a full size sock.

Knitters must have previous experience knitting in the round and comfortable working increases and decreases.
