You don’t need a pattern. Really. In this class, you will learn how to intuitively create a top down sock the way the old-wives did. Since we all have an innate sense of body proportions, you probably know more than you think you know about socks. Using observation of anatomy and a couple of simple counting tricks, socks will magically roll off your needles.  And once you know how to make your own basic sock recipe, you’ll be planning variations before you’ve even finished your first pair.

Note: Our Saturday classes usually run for two hours, but this one runs for three! In order to cover all of the components of sock knitting, we will knit a miniature sock, which you should be able to complete during this three-hour class.
