Sunday sock school – learn to knit toe-up socks

No Frills Knitting, Bedminster, Bristol – Sunday 28 Jan and Sunday 27 Feb, 10.30am – 1pm

There’s no simple luxury quite like a pair of hand knitted socks. Science fact. So find out how to knit your own pair in this two-part workshop.

Over the course of two friendly classes, we’ll cover everything you need to know so you can knit your own socks from the toe-up. The first workshop will cover:

  • Picking a size
  • Casting on
  • Shaping the toe
  • Working the foot of your sock

There are four weeks between sessions to give you plenty of time to work your way from the toe of your sock all the way up to the heel turn, ready for the second class. This will involve:

  • Different ways to turn a heel (and the pros and cons of each)
  • How to swap a different heel into an existing pattern to make it work better for you
  • Stretchy cast-offs and finishing your socks

There will be plenty of tea and snacks on hand. With yarn, needles and patterns all included, all you need to do is bring yourself. Spots are £55.

Please note: you’ll need to be a confident beginner to sign up for this experience, as you’ll be expected to be able to work basic stitches like knit and purl. It would be helpful, but not essential if you also know how to work basic increases and decreases.
