New to sock knitting? This is the perfect place to start! Join us for three 2-hour sessions to learn top down sock basics and how to knit socks in the round on two circular needles using Cat Bordhi's Simple Sock pattern. Classes are scheduled to give students ample time to complete their sock knitting homework between classes and make a pair of adult sized socks in fingering weight yarn.
Skill Requirements: students must be comfortable casting on, knitting, purling and binding off.
Please note that new sock knitters who are already very comfortable with Magic Loop are welcome to use that method, however, the two circular needle method for knitting in the round will be the method taught in this class.
Materials: Socks Soar On Two Circular Needles book by Cat Bordhi, fingering weight yarn and 2 circular needles of your choice in appropriate size to get gauge for your socks (available through the shop)
