Socks are an iconic hand knitted item. If you’ve been eager to try your hand (and foot!) at knitting socks, this is the class for you! These socks are knit one-at-a-time from the cuff to the toe using the magic loop method. With a simple but eye capturing textured pattern, these socks are the perfect first sock project.
In this class, you will learn how to:
-knit in the round using the magic loop method
-turn a heel
-knit a sock that fits your foot
-choose the best sock knitting method and pattern for you!
Prerequisites: Knowledge of the knit and purl stitches is essential. Familiarity with magic loop, decreases, picking up stitches, and the kitchener stitch is helpful, but not necessary.
1 skein of sock yarn (please feel free to wait until the first day of class to choose your yarn)
1 pair of US 1, 40” circular needles
1 tapestry needle
