Knit a Cookie A. sock: Zanzibar

(See this pattern on Ravelry!)
4/1, 4/15, 4/29, 5/13 (Thursdays) | 6:00-8:00 | $95
Students should bring their favorite sock knitting needles, and a crochet hook

Learn how to make this ingeniously designed mirrored sock - rather than being knitted exactly the same, the left and right socks mirror each other. While this sock may look intimidating, the construction is so much fun that before you know it the adventurous knitter is halfway done! Start with a cabled band, knitted flat and seamed; pick up stitches and knit down. Voila!
