Socktastic Stitch Patterns

Socktastic Stitch Patterns

You can use nearly any stitch pattern for ordinary socks. But for fantastic socks, you need stitch patterns that have enough “give” for a snug but comfy fit, that allow for easy re-sizing, and that flow seamlessly into coordinated stitch patterns on the cuff, heel, and toe. Take this class to explore Socktastic patterns, to learn what makes a pattern shine in hand-painted yarn, and to see how to combine basic building blocks and tweak existing patterns to come up with your own Socktastic creations.
