Magic Loop Toe Up Socks – Sock it to me & more!

 

TUESDAY 26th March 2019   6 – 8pm.

 

Please note that the dates above are stand-alone workshops, so you may choose the one that is convenient for you!

The funny thing about sock knitting is that it’s kind of one of the things that many knitters want to learn, but really don’t fancy fiddling around with 4 or 5 double pointed needles.

This method of knitting a sock means you can try them on as you go. Truly bespoke socks!

It is also perfect for knitting in the round – sleeves, sweaters, toy legs, baubles and more……..

Well, this is your chance to learn how to knit a sock from the toe up with a single circular needle.

This means there is no dreaded ‘2nd sock syndrome’ (you know the one, when you have that blissful sense of achievement that disappears when you realise you have to do the same thing all over again!).

This workshop will teach you how to make a sock to fit anyone – Yes really, anyone, from a baby with cute tiny feet right up to Yeti size feet.

Please note, this is not a beginner workshop. You must be able to cast on, knit, purl and cast off.

During the workshop, you will make a baby sock which will teach you all the methods to make a sock with no picking up for the heel and even no sewing up the toe! This method really does work for anyone wanting to make ‘bespoke’ socks.

Bring with you yarn and matching circular needle of a minimum 60cm length (dk or Aran works best for you to learn this technique).

All yarns and needles that you require will be available to purchase in store, prior to the workshop.

Workshop cost is £25.00
