lesson by week
lesson 1: Starting At The Toe
In our first week, we'll assemble the materials needed, and work up a gauge swatch to be sure we're on the right track! We'll then move on to starting our socks, by working the toe section in single crochet as a spiral.
If you prefer not to use the magic loop method, you can begin with a starting chain of 2 and work 10 sc into the 2nd chain from your hook.
lesson 2: Cables Continued
In the second week, we'll move on to the cabled section of the sock. You'll learn how to read a crochet chart, set up cables, and work the foot of your sock in a cabled motif.
Stitch markers will help orient the placement of the first round of post-stitches. Once the cable pattern is established after this first round, it's intuitive to work!
lesson 3: Finishing With A Cuff
In our final week, we complete some of the most satisfying details on the sock – the heel and the cuff! We will begin by creating room for our afterthought heel, and then finish the leg and the post-stitch ribbing to create the cuff. We'll then fill in the heel in rounds, and your socks will be complete!
Block your socks before weaving in the ends. Blocked fabric is slightly toothier, which helps hold in ends. Don't weave ends tightly, it could impair the fit.
