Are you looking to start your sock journey or continue it using a Toe Up method AND Magic Loop? If so, the Reliable Toe Up Sock Pattern is the best way to go. Ellen Coy of Knit How has created a pattern that will help walk you through the process of learning Toe Up AND using Magic Loop to leave the DPNs behind.

Our own Yarn Queen will help you make an entire sock before you leave! Ellen Coy developed an abbreviated version of the pattern to learn how to knit a sock in one 4 hour workshop. This class will help you learn Judy's Magic Cast On, Magic Loop, Fleegle Heel, and finishing this small sock. 

The final hour of the workshop will be casting on our Reliable Toe-Up Sock pattern finishing the toe section.

Heather learned to crochet and sew as a young child. Her sewing stuck with her for years and then she picked up some knitting needles over 15 years ago never looking back. She eventually went back to her roots and started to crochet again. And as she has been falling down the fiber arts rabbit hole, she also enjoys spinning and weaving. Heather has coached youth sports since she was a youth and enjoys passing along her knowledge to help others take their interests to the next step. If you enjoy learning and laughing, you will definitely enjoy spending time at the table with Heather picking up a new skill.
