Knitting: Two-at-a-time Top-down Socks
with Amy Gullen
Saturdays, January 20, 27 and February 3, 1-3
$60 + supplies
Do you want to learn how to knit socks? Do you suffer from second sock syndrome or do your socks turn out different sizes? Two-at-a-time, top-down socks are a great way to learn how to knitsocks and are a fix for those common sock issues. This is also a great project to learn the magic loop method for knitting in the round.
During the class, you will make a pair of baby socks so that you can work through all parts of sock knitting over the 3 sessions.
* 1 center-pull or 2 smaller balls of Fingering weight yarn- 70 yards total. The average skein of sock yarn will give you plenty of yarn to make the class project and a pair of medium women socks.
* US 1 (or US 0 if you are a loose knitter and US1.5 if a tight knitter) 36" circular needle (24-48" will also work). You can also bring 2 circular needles if you don't want to use magic loop. Gauge is not particularly important for the class project but will be for children and adult socks.
* Pattern provided in class
(three session class)
