Accessories, Tips & Techniques
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! Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; working in the round. Be comfortable working small circumference in the round with double pointed needles, magic loop method, or two circular needles.
Supplies for Class:
About 100 yards smooth, light-colored, worsted-weight yarn. A set of double-pointed needles, a long circular for magic loop, or two circular needles appropriate for worsted weight yarn, probably a US 6, 7, or 8/4-5 mm for working a small circumference in the round. Stitch markers.
