Different Sock Heels

Class Description: Have you made socks before, and wondered about the different types of heel techniques?  Learn about different options for making sock heels, and what their advantages and challenges are.  We will cover afterthought heels, short-row heels, and flap-and-gusset.

Please bring your three homework pieces to class. You should have 3 separate cuff-like pieces upon completion:

  1. Cast on 24 stitches.  Knit in the round until it measures 4”. Bind off.

  2. Cast on 24 stitches.  Knit in the round until it measures 1 ½”.  Leave your stitches live - do not bind off.

  3. Follow the same instructions as #2.
