Often when people think about knitting, they imagine a lady knitting a sock on tiny double-pointed needles. Of course, it’s just a stereotype, and we can knit so many different projects. But socks do take a very special place in knitting – from what we know so far, the first thing people EVER knit was a sock.
Even though knitting a sock could seem to be a complicated project, in reality, sock knitting is quite simple. Once you understand how it works, you’ll be able to “whip up” different socks in any size using whatever yarn you have on hand.
There are many ways to make socks – some of them are more challenging than others. In this course, I’ll show you the easiest way I know. Join this course and learn a simple “sock recipe”.
