You will learn how to cast on, knit the heel flap, turn the heel, make a gusset, and end with the kitchener stitch. When these class sessions are over, you will be ready to start your first pair of socks using sock yarn!$50 for two 2-hr sessions plus materialsMaterials: Smooth, light-colored worsted weight yarn and size 5 needles for knitting a small circumference (DPN"s, 2 circs, or magic loop, whichever is your favorite)
