Top-Down Socks with Short-Row Heel and Short-Row Toe

Knit a sock from the top down while learning to shape the heel and toe with short-rows, eliminating the need for picking up and decreasing gusset stitches for the heel and eliminating the dreaded Kitchener stitch for the toe. You will make a small sock to learn all of the skills in one day and leave ready to knit socks in a variety of sizes and yarn weights.

A pattern for a miniature sock and a table for converting to other sizes will be provided.

Requirements:

Must be comfortable knitting small circumferences in rounds and following row-by-row instructions.
