Can you knit and purl? Then you can use one long loop knitting needle to make two toe-up socks at the same time with an invisible seamless cast on, easy gusset heel, a signature rib, and a stretchy bind off. If you’ve taken this class in the past, please join me again. The pattern and template have been significantly revised. Your pattern can be used for any “yummy” yarn of your choice, but for this class, a light colored #4 weight yarn would work best, and a 47-inch long loop needle with a #6 guage that will yield about five stitches per inch. We’ll also spend time exploring your choices from a long list of various knitting tips and techniques. Please bring your long loop knitting needle, and your yarn divided into two balls.
