Sundays, July 30 & August 6, 2023
12:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Instructor: Theressa Silver
Class fee: $75 (materials not included)
Sock Tricks: Toe-up socks with Judy’s magic cast on and an easy short-row heel.
Does turning the heel give you the heebie-jeebies? Does the Kitchener stitch make you want to cry? This class is for anyone who’s ever been overwhelmed or frustrated by knitting socks. In class, you’ll work a toe-up sock formula that starts with Judy’s cast-on and has a simple short-row heel with a little twist that simplifies it. The toe-up method allows you to try as you go for a perfect fit and you’ll be able to use every last bit of your precious sock yarn.
Skill Level: Intermediate-level knitters who are comfortable knitting in the round and familiar with basic increases and decreases.
Materials: 1 skein of sock yarn, needle size appropriate to your yarn (usually US #1) for knitting in the round (either a set of DPNs or a long circular needle if magic loop is preferred).
Handouts will be provided in class.
