In this class you will learn how to knit two socks in one long knitted piece. We begin with the cuff of one sock and end with the toe of the second sock. We then go back and separate the socks and put in 2 afterthought heels, one cuff, and one afterthought toe. As we knit, we will be placing lifelines to delineate where the heels go and where to separate the two socks. This method of knitting socks can be done with any weight yarn and any stitch pattern. It is particularly useful when doing stranded colorwork since the pattern can go on unimpeded by the heel and gusset. The finished socks fit great too!
