Sock Boot Camp
Learn all of the basics of top down sock knitting in only 3 hours while knitting a cute mini sock! Broken down into easy-to-follow steps, you will learn the following: the anatomy of a sock, how to turn a heel and shape a gusset, how to determine the right size and length for your sock and how to shape a toe.
Students should have basic knitting skills, such as how to cast on, knit, purl, increase and decrease. The class will be taught using double pointed needles (DPNs). If you prefer to use Magic Loop then you must have experience with that technique.
Students will leave the workshop with a pattern and all of the skills they need to knit a pair of adult socks.
