Class Details:
Eager to knit socks, but a newbie to the process? In this class, you’ll learn all the basic skills you need to knit a top-down sock, from casting on to turning the heel to working the gusset to finishing off the toe. We’ll make a miniature version of a basic top-down sock step by step, using worsted-weight yarn, so you can practice the skills you need. You MUST know how to knit in the round using either two circular needles or DPNs; if you do not, you will not be able to pass Go and will not be able to collect $200 (please note: no money will be given away in this class under any circumstances). Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; working in the round; have knit a few accessories; knitting in the round using two circular needles OR DPNs
Homework:
None other than making absolutely, positively sure that you can knit in the round using two circulars OR DPNs.
Supplies for Class:
Bring a skein of light-colored, smooth, worsted-weight yarn (Category 4) in a solid color (for example, white, cream, light gray or another pastel solid) and either a set of double-pointed needles or two circular needles with 24-inch cables; you should also bring a tapestry needle and some stitch markers.
