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. (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
- 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).
