Sock Series: Short Row Heel- June 10
with Judie Hershey
Date: Sunday, June 10
Skill Level: This class is appropriate for intermediate knitters on up.
Skills Needed: It is helpful if you have made a sock in the past, but not necessary. You must be able to knit in the round on double pointed needles, 2 circulars, or Magic Loop; whatever is your favorite is fine.
Skills Learned: Skills learned in this class include short rows, as well as a discussion of several different methods of short rows.
Class Description: Short row heels are a quick and easy heel to use in either toe-up or top-down socks. They are great for self-striping yarns when you don’t want to mess up the width of your stripes with the shaping involved in a flap and gusset heel. Short row heels also make it very easy to knit your heel in a contrasting color.
Homework: Cast on 60 stitches (in the round) and knit about 1 inch.
Class length is 1 session of about 2 hours.
Supplies: Materials needed for the class are: a small amount of yarn (any weight) and the appropriate sized needles for that yarn.
Beginner - you have no experience with the technique or skills, the class is designed to teach you the basics.
Intermediate – you have some experience and confidence with the technique or skills, but need a bit more practice, you’re ready to take your skills to the next level.
Advanced – you know how to read patterns and understanding how the stitch is made; you know what you are doing. You are ready for a challenge and to learn new techniques and skills.
