Design Your Own Top-Down Socks

Please select all options.

Welcome to the world of top-down sock design! We are going to transform a simple sock recipe into unique one-of-a-kind sock creations. Whether you want to design your own sock patterns, or just learn how to knit special socks for yourself, we are going to have so much fun creating new sock variations. This workshop includes my Westknits Simple Socks pattern. I recommend using this pattern/recipe as a guide for your own sock creations. Grab some colorful sock yarn and let’s have fun!

You will learn how to…

  • Understand top-down sock anatomy 
  • Choose stitch patterns and incorporate them into your sock design
  • Create many sizes for your socks
  • Design special details
  • Apply different color ideas to your sock designs
  • Work a garter stitch heel flap and slip stitch heel flap 
  • Customize your sock details (cuff, gusset, toe, etc)
