Looking for a weird way to make a sock that lets you make two at once without magic loop? The Afterthought Everything Sock is for you! Created by knitting one very long tube that you cut apart to create your 2 socks and add heels, this sock will add several skills to your knitting tool belt. Don’t be scared of the thought of cutting your knitting, we’ll practice it first on the swatch we make in the class and there’s truly very little actual cutting involved, it’s more of an unlacing process. In the class we will make a test swatch to learn all the skills and practice before you tackle a full sized version. Pattern for teen to XL adult sizes included with the class. The techniques we’ll cover are picot cast on, joining and knitting in the round, basic ribbing, inserting waste yarn into your fabric to be removed later, picot bind off, removing the inserted waste yarn and putting live stitches back on the needles to separate your socks and add heels. This is my original pattern and I have a lot of experience teaching it as a class.
