If you love sock knitting, this class is for you.  In this day-long class we’ll cover nearly a half dozen different heels – from riverbed to short row, afterthought to heel first, sweet tomato to heel flap, and a bunch of different variations.  Making “mini heels” we’ll practice the techniques from each and discuss how to substitute one for another.  

Skill Level: Intermediate: must know how to knit and purl, increase and decrease and work in the round in their preferred method.

Skills Covered:
 everything and anything regarding heel-work: short rows, slipped stitches, picking up stitches, heel flaps, cutting into knitting, afterthought heel, round heels, square heels, and much more.

Instructor will Provide
: Worksheets, samples, mini-heel patterns, stitch markers.


Materials Information

Bring to Class:  DK or worsted weight yarn, in at least 2 colors -  make sure the yarn is light colored (to be able to see stitches) and not very fuzzy; should hold up well to unraveling, if necessary - and needles corresponding to yarn to get a “firm” fabric.
