Worlds collide this month as we find one of our favorite designers, Wendy D. Johnson, bringing her massive sock skills to the Boost Your Knitting series of techniques and patterns.
It just gets better and better, I tell you.
This month Jen Arnall-Culliford takes us through the working of a gusset heel with toe-up socks. This technique creates a little more space across the instep. It’s good to try different methods of sock making, Jen reminds us, because your fit can vary from one method to another.
What I love about this video tutorial is that it gives us sock fiends a new method for working toe-up socks. I’m still pretty new to toe-up socks, so this all seems magical.
The allover texture makes these socks supremely squishy. And that heel! Magnifique!
It really is an elegant heel, don’t you think? Watch the video up top to see how it works. Excellent armchair knitting.
