Knit from the cuff down, this sock introduces new sock knitters to basic sock construction. Special techniques include a simple rib pattern, slip stitch heel flap, gusset decreases, and toe shaping.
*This workshop is suitable for Intermediate Knitters. Intermediate Knitters are Current Knitters who know the basics: long-tail cast-on, knit, purl, and bind off. Experience working with double-pointed needles is a plus but not required. This is an ambitious class & will require knitting at home. We will review the whole pattern & all techniques, with particular attention to turning the heel and finishing. We will discuss 'second sock syndrome.'
Class size is limited. Preregistration is required. (717) 768-8007.
Materials for Classes and Free Workshops at LYS must be purchased at LYS.
