Heel Flap in the Round
Tickets at $110.00
Do you love the fit of the regular heel flap, but hate picking up stitches? Would you like to knit your stranded patterns right to the bottom of the heel, but hate purling with two colours?
In this hands on class, you will knit a mini sock, working your heel flap in the round. No flat knitting, no picking up stitches!
You will also learn how to convert your favourite sock pattern into this format. Three shaping options will be discussed. Pick one to knit in class, and take home the instructions to try the other two. Handouts with worksheets, instructions and patterns will be provided (Omar’s Carpet from Knitting Knee-Highs on Ravelry has this style of heel).
Skills required: knowledge of knit and purl sts. Knitting in the round.
Materials required to bring:
- usual knitting tool kit
- DK weight yarn and set of appropriate dpns
