Intro To Socks: Magic Loop and More!

We love knitting socks for many reasons... they are easy to knit once you learn the anatomy; they are very portable for knitters on the go;  they feel fantastic to wear; and most importantly, sock yarn is SO MUCH FUN to collect! During this class students will knit a sock from the cuff down while learning the following skills:

  • The anatomy of a sock
  • Magic Loop method of knitting in the round
  • How to turn a heel
  • How to make a gusset
  • Right and Left leaning decreases
  • The Kitchener Stitch method of closing a toe

Intermediate level students have the option of knitting a lace sock while incorporating the following additional skills:

  • How to read a chart
  • How to make a yarn over properly
  • SSN (a technique to knit three stitches together in an attractive way)
