Class Details:
Sock knitting can be fun, relaxing, and magical. Just ask anyone who’s ever turned a heel! In this workshop we’ll learn the construction of a basic top-down sock, including heel flaps, heel turns, gussets, toes, and Kitchener stitch. You’ll get to practice all these techniques in class by making your own mini sock! We’ll also discuss other ways that socks can be constructed, what kinds of yarn are appropriate for socks, and how to get a great fit. Come join the sock knitting club!
