Knitting Toe-up Socks with a Fitted Flap Heel

Ever long to knit a sock from the toe up that has the same great fit around the heel as a sock knit from the cuff down? Now you can. This class will teach you a unique method for knitting a fitted heel with a flap from the toe upwards. Students should know how to knit and purl in the round. This method works for double pointed and circular needles. This class is especially good for cuff-down sock knitters who hate having yarn left over. A full sock pattern is included in the handout.
