Top-Down Socks Using Magic Loop

with Andrew Krzynowek

With so many different ways to knit socks, how do you know which one is right for you? In this class, sock knitter Jen Lucas walks you through her favorite way to knit socks – top-down using the magic loop method. She begins with reviewing the basic construction of a sock and demonstrates how to work a loose cast on to start the sock. She shows you just how easy it is to work the magic loop method and shares her tips and tricks for working the technique when knitting socks.

Throughout the class, Jen shares her expertise on how to customize the sock, if you like. She shows you the German short row heel and finishes the sock with Kitchener stitch. Jen also discusses sock yarn and how to properly measure a sock to fit your recipient.

With an hour of instruction and two PDF patterns, one for worsted weight socks and one for fingering weight socks, you’ll be off and running with sock knitting in no time!
