Sock It To Me: Learn Sock Knitting Basics
If you can knit in the round, you can knit a sock! Socks are small, portable projects, as well as practical finished accessories, and the yarn options are such fun!
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
In this workshop, you’ll learn the basic construction and techniques to knit a miniature sock, and you’ll be ready to cast on your first full-size sock. If you haven’t used double point needles or the Magic Loop method, we’ll cover both in class.
You should know how to cast on, knit in the round, purl, and bind off. We’ll cover the other techniques in class.
We request that you purchase your project yarn from the shop for your full-size sock and you will receive a one-time 10% discount on your class yarn purchase.
