Knitting socks is a time honoured-tradition that makes for the pair-fect gift for others or a cosy treat for yourself.
These chunky socks are knitted in the round using double-pointed needles (DPNs) and will teach how to form a rib, turn a heel, pick up stitches, toe decreases and how to graft the toe seam together using Kitchener stitch.
Taught by knitting designer/maker Hermione Crowe.
