OXFORD SOCKS: Toe-up with German Short Rows

October 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$45

You’ve probably never started a sock this way: provisionally cast on only half the number of stitches needed. How can this possibly work? But it does! Easy wrap-free German short rows both increase stitches and shape the toe at the same time. The heel is worked the same way in this fun new method for toe-up socks. 

Prerequisites: Know how to cast on, knit, purl, increase, decrease, bind off, and knit in the round, also prior experience knitting socks.

Materials: Approx. 400 yds fingering weight sock yarn; US 1/2.25mm DP needles; US D/3.25mm crochet hook; locking stitch marker; waste yarn; copy of Churchmouse Classics Oxford Socks (available from GYI).
