Learn to knit bed socks

Half day workshop at Creative Space, Bristol

Tuesday 23 November, 6:30pm – 9pm

Come and join Jacki from the Woolly Badger and learn how to knit a cosy pair of chunky bed socks. This 2.5hr knitting workshop is perfect for advanced beginners who fancy learning to make the ultimate gift knit.

You’ll get to grips with stretchy cast-ons, knitting in the round, turning a heel, and using kitchener stitch to close a toe. Everything you need to know to knit a simple sock – with lots of time for questions and hands-on help.

The 2.5 hour workshop gives plenty of time to get stuck in to your first sock, and you’ll get to take home everything you need to finish your second as the pattern, yarn, and needles are all included in the workshop price.

And you won’t be left to it after the workshop, as attendees will get a whole load of follow-up materials and tutorials to refer back to, with the option of more support over Zoom (a small extra charge will apply for Zoom support)

Tickets cost just £40, and there are 8 spaces available, so you can be sure you’ll get all the help you need. If you’ve got questions, take a look at the FAQ below or drop me a line.

Tell me more about the host

I’m Jacki, the designer behind The Woolly Badger. I’ve been knitting for more than a decade, designing for a few years, and teaching online workshops since lockdown. You can see what I’m up to on Instagram, and check out my designs on Ravelry.

Where’s the workshop taking place?

The workshop is happening at the lovely Creative Space on North Street, Bedminster, Bristol. It’s a dedicated space just for creative workshops like this one.

Will there be any refreshments?

I’ll be bringing along lots of tea and biscuits for us all, because tea, knitting, and a nice sit down are the best things in life.

What’s included in the price?

The ticket price includes the pattern, a set of 8mm needles, and either acrylic or wool/acrylic mix yarn. There’s also an option to upgrade to 100% wool yarn for a tiny little fee if you fancy having luxurious feet.

How good do I need to be at knitting?

You need to be a competent beginner to get the most out of the class. We’ll be tackling some skills that might be new to you like knitting in the round, picking up stitches, decreasing stitches and closing the toe of your sock, but you’ll get full support. The big one to get your head round is knitting in the round using magic loop – I’ll send out some info on that before the workshop so you can have a look at what you’ll be doing before you get there.

If you want to have a chat before booking, please do get in touch with me.

What could I do next?

After this workshop you’ll have all the skills you need to knit a basic top-down sock. I fully recommend Winwick Mum for more sock knitting info, but be warned; sock knitting is addictive.
