Overview

Make socks that fit your feet and your style! Whether you're one for whimsical designs or comfy classics, join expert instructor JC Briar and learn how to bring different patterns and pieces together into a complete sock design. During class, you'll conquer variations for every part of the sock and find out what to look for in the stitch patterns you want to use. Then, you'll discover how to elongate, mirror and mix stitch patterns to capture the look you want and see how to transition cleanly from one stitch pattern to the next. Once you can transition patterns, shift your focus to creating socks that flow seamlessly from cuff to toe. Wondering how to chart your designs? JC will show you how to put your own creations down on paper too! Plus, she'll end class by teaching you how to adjust your socks to make them fit like a dream.
