Sock Knitting 101 with Yarn


This class is suitable for beginner sock knitters, but not beginner knitters.

Join me, on zoom, for casting on a sock, knitting a twisted rib, managing knitting in the round on little sock circulars, or magic loop or dpns. I will show you how to put in waste yarn for an afterthought heel and in our second zoom session how to pick up and knit the heel, and shape the toes, ending with a kitchener demonstration.

There will be a what’s app support group for if you get stuck after the class, and to share zoom codes etc

Along with your entry into the class, you will receive an Esteresa, Be Inspired Rainbow Cat colourway yarn (80 grams) with a contrast heel and toe colour (30 grams) in soft turquoise, turquoise, pink or mauve – choose your option from the drop down menu.

Sock needles are extra’s you will need:

small circular sock needles (23cm) – I recommend the HiyaHiya small steel circulars, 2,5mm

and for heels and toes I use the HiyaHiya flyers, a 6″, 2,5mm set

Please shout if you need help.

Class date: on zoom in your home, Saturday 10th April 2021, 2-4pm

Follow up class will be decided on by popular consensus, but aiming for by end of May 2021.
