Instructor: Jill Lerman
Have you ever wanted to learn how to knit socks but felt intimidated? This 3 day course will teach you all the techniques to complete your goal. Using worsted weight yarn is the key to see your stitches clearly while learning all the steps to knit a sock. This will give you confidence and set a foundation for knitting socks with fingering weight yarn in the future.
The provided pattern outlines how to knit a traditional sock which starts from the cuff down and includes: a slip stitch heel flap, short row heel & gusset, and finishing toes with kitchener stitch.
There will be homework to complete each week after class, before the next session, in order to be prepared to learn the next step(s).
1 skein of worsted weight yarn (100g /~200 yds) in a light color, so you can easily see your stitches
Recommended yarn: 1 skein of Manos del Uruguay Alegria Grande
Needles: Chiaogoo US 5 (3.75mm) in 32-40" length
Chiaogoo Red Lace Circulars are recommended for this magic loop technique, because of the cord's flexibility.
A free pattern will be provided on the first class day.
