Top-Down Socks, Part A
January 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Cost: $65 for 4 hours
Dates: Tuesdays, January 31st and February 6th from 6-8 pm
Learn how to make top-down socks on double-pointed needles. Starting with a mini “training sock,” we teach you everything you need to know to knit socks – from working in the round to turning the heel to shaping the toe. Once you’ve mastered the mini, we get you started on your first full-size sock. Along the way, we share lots of tips and techniques, including easy ways to join the round – without twisting! – handling the gusset pickup, and a beginner-friendly no-graft toe. If you’ve not made socks before, this is the class for you. Kate also demonstrate Magic Loop and patterns provided permit use of both DPNs and magic loop.
Skill Level: Advanced beginner/intermediate – knitters must be comfortable with knit, purl, ribbing and decreasing; some experience working in the round is preferable but not absolutely required.
Materials Required: Scrap medium-weight yarn in a light color (included in class fee) and 4 or 4.5mm/US #6-7 DPNs and for the first week, and one skein of sock yarn with appropriate DPNs for the second week, available in store. Our staff will be happy to help you pick out your supplies before the class begins, if need be.
