Hand-Knit socks are uniquely comfortable and especially interesting little feats of knitted engineering. Knit two pairs of slipper socks, exploring two different methods of construction and discover your favorite method. The first pair offers classic top down construction beginning with the cuff, featuring a heel flap, gusset and wedge toe.

Class discussions and handouts cover toe and heel variations for each method and techniques for measuring to achieve the perfect fit.
