Socks!

Socks!

Learn to knit socks using the magic loop technique. On the day you will knit a mini sock. You will learn how to knit in the round with magic loop, how turn the heel, pick up stitches for the gusset and shaping and grafting the toe. Participants will need to know how to cast on and off, knit and purl. No previous knitting in the round experience needed.

Participants need to bring a 2.5mm 80cm circular needle (can also bring 2.5mm DPNs if you wish) and a sewing up needle for grafting the toe. At the end of the day you will have all the skills needed to knit your first pair of socks (and a basic pattern to use up the rest of your workshop yarn), and with loads of beautiful sock patterns available, you may never stop.
