Learn to knit Socks
19th October 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm£35
Put your best foot forward and be guided with Jill Bulgan through the process of knitting socks from top to toe!
This class is suitable for those of you new to knitting or making 3d objects as it focuses on knitting socks on 2 needles. It is also a fun project for intermediate knitters. If you know how to cast on, knit & purl and cast off you will be fine in this class.
If you are an absolute beginner and would like to join this class we are offering 2 Beginners Knitting classes, which will prepare you for this class – we also offer a discount for block booking!
On completion of this workshop, participants will confidently be able to:
– Make socks using 2 needles
– Create ribbing for elastication
– Experience 3d knitting
– Understand how to ‘turn the heel’ by picking up stitches
– Decrease and create shaping for the toes
– Introduce colour to create pattern or text on the socks.
– Follow a simple sock pattern from start to finnish
