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 five 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 five DPNs


Using light-colored, smooth, worsted-weight yarn (Category 4) in a solid color (such as white, cream, light gray or a pastel color), and either DPNs or the two-circular method in the appropriate size for your yarn, CO 40 sts. Divide the stitches evenly among the four needles (10 sts on each of 4 needles, with the fifth as working needle OR 20 sts on each circular needle) and join for knitting in the round, being careful not to twist. Work in K2P2 ribbing until work measures 2" from cast-on. DO NOT BREAK YARN.

Supplies to Bring:

In addition to your homework, including the yarn and needles, you should also bring a tapestry needle and some stitch markers.
