Learn to knit socks toe up and 2 at a time. Toe-up means we can use as much of the yarn as we want and 2 at a time means we don’t have 2nd sock syndrome.
We’ll be using Wendy Johnson's Toe-Up Socks With a Difference pattern and 2 circular needles. This is a perfect way to use those self-striping sock yarns!
This is a 2 session class.
