Let's Knit Socks (top down socks).
Always wanted to make your own socks and did not know where to begin?
Join us for this class and learn the basics of making socks top down.
We will be talking about sock anatomy, grafting, and tips to avoid holes and tight cast on.
To concentrate on a sock itself, we will use Stockinette for the main stitch pattern. To make it possible to go through all important parts, we will be making one sample-size sock.
After this class, you will be ready to make any size socks.
Skill level: Advanced Beginner
Material Fee: $0
Student Supplies: Yarn: One ball of worsted weight yarn
Needles: Double-pointed needles US 7 or 8
Optional needles if you do not like to work with double-pointed needles: two circular needles of the same size
Notions: Stitch markers, tapestry needle
Homework: With class yarn and needles, cast on 48 sts on one of the needles.
Divide all sts between 4 needles, so each has 12 sts. Pm and join for working in the round, being careful not to twist the cast-on row.
Next rnd: *K1, p1; rep from * to end.
Repeat this rnd seven more times.
Begin Stockinette. Knit all stitches on each rnd until sock measures 3” or desired length from cast on.
