1pm - 3pm Saturday 4th & 18th April & 2nd May
Cost $180 which includes yarn and needles
Beginning on Saturday April 4th and continuing on April 18th and May 2nd we will be teaching our Introduction to Sock Knitting using a classic top down sock pattern. Over the course of 3 two hour lessons we teach top down socks using fingering weight sock yarn on bamboo double pointed needles.
The first class covers the anatomy of a sock, cast on methods and getting you started on the cuff.
Lesson two covers heal turn and instep shaping.
Lesson three covers knitting the foot and kitchener stitch/grafting the toe.
Having the classes over a period of three alternate weeks gives the student a chance to grasp the techniques and keep to their own pace. If you find that you are whizzing through it also gives you a chance to cast on the second sock.
You must be able to attend all three lessons. Also if help is needed during the period between classes we are available at the shop for ongoing help.
This is not a learn to knit class. You must be able to knit garter stitch, purl, increase and decrease.
