Event Details

Be introduced to some new knitting skills or expand your existing knit-knowledge!

Put your best foot forward and be guided with Lola Johnson through the process of knitting socks from top to toe! In the class you will create a mini sock to try out all parts of knitting a sock. You will also receive a pattern to make your own full sized versions following the same methodology learnt in the class.

The class is taught by Lola Johnson. Lola is the dyer and designer behind Third Vault Yarns. With years of experience from learning to knit at a young age, she has taken that experience into designing patterns using a wide range of techniques – which she delights in sharing and helping others to build their skills with fun and different patterns. Designs for Lola’s classes will draw inspiration from her books “Board Game Knits”

To make the most of this session, we recommend that you have some basic knitting skills such as knowing how to cast on, knit & purl stitch and how to cast off. If you have attended our beginners knitting class or equivalent you will be fine!

– Make socks using 2 needles
