5098 Intermediate Argyle Socks Argyle Socks are classic and have a timeless appeal—especially for men. They have a unique construction, because they are most efficiently knit flat using the intarsia technique, and then joined and knit in the round following the gussets. Mattress stitch is used to invisibly join the leg and the instep seams. This class will have samples, charts and instructions for all sizes, from baby socks to adult male, and will show how to modernize the Argyle using new yarns and fun color combinations. Learn to do intarsia, read a color chart, work duplicate stitch, invisible seaming, how to knit a gusset heel flat, ways to knit and close a toe, and how to weave in ends efficiently.
