March 9th – Sock Workshop


Class Name: Sock Workshop

Class Date: Saturday March 9th

Class Hours: 1:00 – 3:00pm

Instructor: Terry King

Class Cost: $35 per 2 hour session

Skill Level: Experienced beginner and up

Class Description: This is an ongoing workshop/lab type class in which you are free to experiment and learn the sock knitting process step-by-step, at your own pace in your own way. You may join this class at any stage of your sock(s) knitting journey.

During this time you can learn the structure of a sock, how to read sock patterns, how to knit socks cuff down and/or toe up, using any or all of the different needle configurations used for knitting socks. You can also learn how to knit socks either one at a time or two at at time! If this is your very first sock, we recommend knitting a worsted weight sock on double points. On the other hand, if skinny yarn doesn’t intimidate you, then you may choose fingering weight socks.

Material Needed:

  • 200 – 300 yds of worsted weight yarn OR 400 – 450 yds of fingering weight yarn
  • US #5 or #6 needles for worsted weight OR US #1 or #2 for fingering weight
  • Stitch markers

Pattern: A basic sock pattern for the yarn weight and style of sock knitting you’ve chosen. We will be happy to assist you in selecting an appropriate pattern.

Skills you should have: How to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off. You will learn joining in the round, increases and decreases, among other skills.

Skills you will learn: will vary depending on your selections and skill level

Homework: Please purchase all materials and have yarn wound BEFORE class time.
