Learn to Knit Socks: Fri 28th Feb

1 item left
  • Friday 28th Feb: 10am - 1pm

    Perfect travel knitting!! If you've ever worn a hand-knitted sock, you know there's nothing else quite like it! And knitting them up is so much fun - especially with all those AMAZING sock yarns out there...

    In this clever little workshop, you will learn all of the techniques you need to knit a full-sized sock, but on a mini sock pattern which works up more quickly in a class setting, ensuring there's time for everything within 3 hours.

    (Full sized socks take much longer to make - you'll be able to make them in your own time after this amazing workshop. Mini socks are also super cute for Christmas decorations or mini-people!)

    You will learn: 
    • Knitting socks using the top-down construction. 
    • Using Magic loop/circular needles or DPNs
    • Rib cuff and successfully joining in the round
    • Heel flap 
    • Turning the heel 
    • Short rows
    • Gusset decreases
    • Toe decreases
    • Grafting
    • We will provide you with an easy basic sock pattern (for child and adult) so you can practise at home all the techniques learned in this class.

    It’s very important that you read the pre-class info and that you are confident in knitting basics (casting on, knit and purl).
  • Class Duration:
    3 hours per class, 10am-1pm. Please arrive at least 15 mins before class if you need to buy yarn for the class.

    Prior Experience:
    Basic knit skills - you must be able to confidently cast on, knit and purl.

    Class Materials: 
    Pattern will be provided. Please bring your own needles and yarn, or purchase in store before the class. 

    We recommend using DK weight yarn for this class, with 3.5mm - 4mm needles. Use double pointed needles or circular needles or both!

    If you plan to purchase hanked sock yarn for the class, please give us enough time to wind into a ball for you before the class.

    10% discount on yarn and/or tools purchased for the class. 

    We are sorry but we cannot offer refunds on classes if you are unable to attend for whatever reason, unless we are able to refill your spot.

    Classes take place upstairs or downstairs, with access via a spiral staircase.

  • About Nuria:

    My name is Nuria and I'm from Barcelona. Almost 13 years ago I married my lovely Aussie boy and we've managed to have 2 gorgeous kids together, My little Aussie man and 12 years old Aiden and my gorgeous and very determined little english lady Ari who is 8!

    Six years ago we embraced a big adventure and moved to London from Barcelona. And here we are, three years later, happy and loving this little adorable place that is Kew (Richmond) where we live.

    So, now that I can definitely say that my family is all settled, it's time for me to start my own big adventure and share my little creation:Yaya Knits & Bobs

    Yayaknits is about sharing and teaching people to knit and crochet, along with the opportunity to purchase hand-made knit and crochet products that I can design for you or we can design together. 

    The inspiration for Yayaknits comes mainly from my grandmother Carmen who we would call Yaya. She was an amazing, brave and inspiring woman who taught me as a little girl all the knitting and crochet skills she was passionate about. I would like to share this passion to all that want to learn.
