Toe Up Socks with Magic Loop!

June 13, 20 and 27, 2017 (Tuesdays)

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Get ready to brave the world of toe-up sock knitting! In this class you will learn the beauty of the magic loop technique to knit one sock at a time from the toe-up! This technique will give you all you need to know about seamless knitting, German short rows, turning heels that fit your foot, measuring for a good fit, and the infinite ways you can introduce creative patterns into your socks! And we promise a lot of laughter as you learn. And, the benefit is that once you learn this technique you can progress to making two socks at the same time!

Cost: $90 (3 sessions)

Materials: One skein or ball of smooth (min 400 yds), sock weight yarn, light colored (can be variegated). Needles: 32” circular needles, US size 1 (2.25mm) or size needed to achieve gauge (see homework). Note taking supplies.

Homework Knit a 3-4” swatch in stockinette stitch, that measures gauge at 8 or 9 stitches per inch. Adjust needle size if necessary.
