Are you tired of knitting socks that fall down, leave red bands around the cuff, squish your toes, wear out too quickly, or just plain don’t fit? Then this is the class for you!
Whether you have big feet or small ones, bunions, cankles, giant calves or problem toes, Andi shows you how to create your own template for a perfectly fitting, comfortable knitted sock. From gauge and accurate measurement all the way to cables and lace, Andi shares her knowledge, worksheets and tutorials. You’ll leave the workshop with a unique sock pattern that fits, flatters and works for your unique shape!
