Warning . . . .
Don't read this if you love store-bought socks that don't fit right.

Read on . . . .
if you've been dreaming of filling your sock drawer with comfy socks made just for your feet.

We'll start at the cuff, work all the way to the toe, then go back and work a heel designed for your foot.  


This style is perfect for:

self-striping sock yarn
keeping in your grab-and-go project bag
all those one skeins of indie-dyed yarn
creating that formula that fits you perfectly
knitting over and over again

Whether you are a new sock knitter, or an experienced knitter who wants to learn a few new tricks, this class will have something for everyone.

You'll receive Venessa's studio pattern, and learn to customize the fit for that perfect, comfy pair of socks that you will want filling your drawer.  If you've got a pair of Blundstones or Docs, these are just the best!

You'll need:

one skein fingering weight sock yarn (approx. 420 metres = 100 grams)
choose self-striping if you'd like to learn a few design tricks
2 mm metal double-pointed or circular needles (bring your favourites)
a few unlocking stitch markers
a tape measure and pencil

You'll learn:

a stretchy and tidy cast on
a few options for a ribbed cuff
some tricks for knitting with self-striping yarns
to customize the fit
to shape a toe and graft it closed
to knit an afterthought heel that fits your foot
finishing techniques

You'll also receive modifications for a children's size.

Start making room in your sock drawer!
