Tips & Techniques, Accessories
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
None other than making absolutely, positively sure that you can knit in the round using two circulars OR DPNs.
Supplies to Bring:
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.
