Hi, I'm Ellen from The Chilly Dog. Welcome to my studio for our monthly wrap up for February, 2023.
First topic patterns. There are no new patterns in the shop this month, however, I did pull out one of my old favorites,
my Ready, Set, Go Socks.
This is a pattern that I'm working on right now with a class of new sock knitters.
I like using this pattern for new sock knitters because the design across the instep is fairly basic, but it allows the students a chance to explore three different heel shaping methods.
A flap-less gusset heel, a short row heel, and the traditional flap and gusset heel.
This happens to be the top down version, but I also have a toe up version of the pattern available in the shop.
Next, let's talk about Pack Perks for our Pack+ Members on the website. If you haven't had a chance to download it
