Apr 11 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Learn to Knit Socks

© tincanknits

Always wanted to make a pair of socks? Maybe you tried once and it didn’t go well? Maybe it looks too complicated? This is your chance to get past that fear learn how to make socks!

Socks are a fun, portable, functional item beloved by many knitters. Learning to make socks involves a number of steps, so we’ve broken the class into 2 sessions 4 weeks apart, giving you lots of time to work on your socks.

In this class we will learn about sock construction as well as explore various methods and techniques by working on a pair of socks that fit! We will learn each of the steps to create socks to include: casting on; working in the round; turning the heel; working the sock gusset; working the foot of the sock; and finally finishing the toe.

We will review the three methods of knitting socks: using double points; using two circular needles; and using one circular needle, also known as “magic loop”. We will also discuss knitting socks using the “toe-up” method.

In the class, we will knit our socks using double points, the oldest method of making socks. We will also work from the top of the leg down to the toe. The techniques you learn in this class will apply to all three methods.

NOTE: The class will meet in two 3 hour sessions allowing for time in between the sessions to work on your socks. The dates are Saturday March 14 and Saturday April 11. Both from 9AM to Noon.

  • 1 skein of Manos del Uruguay Alegria – enough to make the pair of socks (a $26 value)
