Love socks with the heel-flap and gusset construction? Hate working cuff down?
This is the sock for you!
I’ve always been a fan of the traditional sock construction, with a heel-flap, a beautiful, wedge-shaped heel turn, and then a gusset for perfect shaping on the arch of your foot. I’ve almost always knitted them cuff down too.
Until now, that is…
I wanted to work on a way of making socks that look identical to those time-honoured, immortal socks, but are instead, worked toe-up. And this is the result.
-Nathan Taylor (Sockmatician)
Nathan's sock pattern eliminates the fear of running out of yarn! Knitting from the toe up lets you work until your yarn is gone and he has worked out a way to eliminate those pesky holes that show up at the top corner of your heel gusset.
His pattern is available on Ravelry at this link https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sockmaticians-toe-ups and muct be purchased by each class participant. This is not just a sock pattern. It is rather a formula, or to use a friendlier word, a recipe that you can use to create whatever size socks you like. You can adapt the recipe to deal with a variety of foot sizes and yarn/needle/knitter combinations, and you should get the perfect fit every time.
Supplies are not included in the class fee.
