Learn To Knit Socks | November 24th Workshop
If you've always wanted to knit socks, this is the workshop for you! If you're nervous about turning a heel, Kitchener stitching a toe or just unsure how to get the right fit, all of this is covered in this workshop.
This is another of our popular full-day workshops and places fill quickly so make sure you secure your spot now. They're always a lot of fun and we have a break at lunchtime to enjoy a gorgeous lunch spread of gourmet salads & wraps, and we also get to indulge in a Devonshire tea in the afternoon. This gives everyone a chance to chat and browse the lovely yarns on display (which include beautiful natural fibre socks yarns). Delicious gluten-free options are available, please notify us with a note at checkout.
What You'll Learn:
In this 6-hour workshop you'll knit a miniature plain sock from start to finish, allowing you to practise every skill you need to knit a full-sized sock. The techniques you'll be taught are: turning a heel, shaping the toe and Kitchener stitch. We're using a cuff-down sock construction technique knitted in-the-round on a long circular needle using the Magic Loop Method.
What Your Kit Contains:
1 x ball organic Australian merino 8ply wool
1 x pair of KnitPro circular needles
1 x darning needle
1 x printed mini sock pattern and your sock knitting guide (Everything you need to complete your mini sock - just bring yourself!)
Skills Required to Attend:
You must be able to cast on, knit, purl and follow a simple knitting pattern. Previous experience knitting in-the-round is beneficial, but you will be shown how on the day.
