A Sampling of Sock Heels - SOLD OUT

Did you know there are a TON of sock heel options out there? There are so many heels to choose from! Join us as we explore several different types of heels and analyze their pros and cons. We will cover cuff-down and toe-up options, so there will be a heel for every type of sock knitter!

Prerequisite:  Basic sock knitting experience

Skill Level Required:  Intermediate

Homework: Using sport/DK weight yarn and appropriately sized needles for weight and for small circumferences, cast on 40 sts and join to work in the round. Work about 1/2" in ribbing (either 1x1 or 2x2 is fine) and then 1" in St st. Working over 20 sts, work a heel flap flat in St st for 12 rows, slipping the first st of every WS row, ending with a WS row. (DO NOT slip the first st on the RS rows.) Leave on the needles. (Heel flap will not be a square, this is intentional.)
