What?! There’s more than one way to build a heel for a sock?! In this class we’ll explore different heel constructions, discuss when and why to use them, and practice making heels various styles for toe-up or cuff-down socks. Patterns will be provided for all heels covered in class. It’s a great way to practice new constructions without making an entire sock!
