Socktastic Stitch Patterns with J C Briar
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 patterns on the cuff, heel, and toe. Explore Socktastic patterns, learn what makes a pattern shine in hand-painted yarn, and see how to combine basic building blocks to come up with your own Socktastic creations.
Note: Must be comfortable with reading charts.
Favorite sock yarn and appropriate needles, pencil and eraser (graph paper will be supplied by the teacher).
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
