Hand's on format: you can work along with the instructor.
If you know how to knit in the round, all you need to learn to knit a pair of socks is how to turn a heel and finish the toe. It is easier than you think and works like magic! In this class, you will learn all the parts of a traditional cuff-down sock and the math to be able to knit it for any foot with any weight of yarn. You will knit a baby sock, step-by-step, from the heel flap and gusset to the toe decrease and graft to finish it. You will come away with a basic pattern that you can use to make socks for anyone!
Prerequisites: knitting small circumferences in the round with magic loop, two circulars or dpns.
Homework: details will be sent via email after sign up.
- 200 yards of a smooth, light-colored worsted weight yarn
- needles to work at a medium gauge in stockinette in the round
- stitch markers
- basic knitting tools.
2 Student Minimum
Instructor: Sarah Walworth
Sarah first learned to knit as a child from her mom, but re-learned as an adult when she needed a way to keep her hands busy. It quickly cascaded into re-writing patterns to fit her, learning innovative techniques, and trying all different ways to tension the yarn. She now makes her living as a knitting technical editor and loves to pass on the craft to whomever she can get to hold needles and yarn for a few minutes.
