Class: Intro To Socks
Class: Intro To Socks
This is the classic sock our mothers (and their mothers) knew by heart. You’ll learn: A slip-stitch heel-flap pattern, turning a heel, gusset shaping, and Kitchener stitch for toe grafting. Basic knitting skills and experience with double-point needles required. If you’re rusty, come to one of our ‘Drop In’ Circles to get your homework cuff started.
Maximum of 6 students. $45 (3-session workshop).
Sessions this season:
- Thursday evenings 6:30-8:00pm 9/20, 9/27, 10/4 with Becky ffitch.
Please bring to class:
350 yds of fingering-weight yarn or 275 yds or DK-weight yarn. If this is your first pair of socks, we recommend using DK-weight yarn. It goes faster!
Cast on the cuff of your sock, following the instructions in our Basic Sock pattern. Work to desired length. Come to class ready to work your heel.
