Sock Basics

Note: This class is currently full. If you would like to be placed on the waiting list, please call Customer Service at 800-367-9327. 

If you’ve ever looked at a pair of hand knit socks and wondered how they were made, this is the class for you!  In this class you will learn how to make a basic sock and how to use this knowledge to make any sock there is!  By making a toddler sized sock, participants will learn how to turn a heel and create the toe of the sock, all while completing a quick project.   Be warned, sock knitting can be highly addictive!  Please be sure you are comfortable knitting small projects in the round, on double-pointed needles, before registering for this class.

Materials Required:

  • One ball of sport weight yarn, in a light color    
  • One set of DPNs in size reccommended on the ball band of the yarn (this class will be taught using the double-pointed needle method of circular knitting) 
  • 1 card of sock reinforcing thread in a color that matches your yarn

HOMEWORK:
Cast on 32 stitches in a sport weight yarn, using needles appropriate for the yarn. Join in the round and knit, in 2x2 ribbing, for 3 inches.
