Knitting Toe Up Socks
During this class you make a mini toe-up sock which will cover a wide range of essential sock knitting skills. These include:
- knitting in the round (using magic loop)
- how to cast on for knitting a closed toe
- toe increases
- gusset increases
- turning the heel
- a nice stretchy bind off.
This workshop is not suitable for complete beginners. You need to be able to cast on/off, knit and purl with a nice even tension and understand basic increasing/decreasing. It helps if you’ve knit in the round before but it’s not essential.
This class will give you all the skills to make your own full size pair of socks once you get home.
All materials are provided for this class. This includes a set of circular needles and a mini ball of sock yarn.
Your tutor for this class will be Sharon Carter. Sharon is an experienced tutor and designer who has been published in both Knit Now and Crochet Now. She is also a talented yarn dyer and has her own yarn brand, Dragonhill Studio.
