Shortie Sock Knitting Class


I have just knit my first cuff down shortie and it turned out so cute and is one that I will wear more often than a longer sock. It’s also great for a workshop because you do the cuff then almost immediately start the heel flap.

The pattern we will be using is sock B in this set by Summer Lee. You will need to purchase your OWN copy of the pattern. Remember designers can only continue creating and testing great patterns for us, if you purchase from them, thereby supporting them. Sharing of patterns is strictly prohibited in the Be Inspired space.

The workshop will teach you the following, and is suitable for beginner sock knitters – but would be too challenging for those who cannot knit a stitch at all.

You will then go away and continue knitting in the round towards the toe. The toe portion will be taught via a video link.

Workshop includes the yarn – either a Sexy Sock set by Luna Fibers (please click this link choose your first and second option of AVAILABLE sets and let me know) or a Slick sock with a corresponding Soul yarn (getting new stock next week, I can choose a colour for you) – the Sexy Sock sets have a mini in a semi solid for heels and toes.

Needles are optional but I recommend the HiyaHiya 9″ circulars (new stock will be here soon)  – these will get you to the toe decreases, after which you will need flyers (flexible dpn’s) or double pointed needles – these are not included, as I will explain options at the workshop.

Please use the drop down menu to choose your workshop option.
