About the event
Have you always wanted to learn how to knit socks but think they may be too complicated? In this workshop, Adite will teach you all the skills you need to knit adult-sized socks on magic loop. You will learn a new technique each week on one sock and can choose whether to make the pair as homework or wait until the completion of the course. By the end of the fourth session you will have completed at least one sock and will have the confidence and skills to create its pair.
Saturday 04 March: Session 1: Cast on, cuff ribbing and start leg
Saturday 11 March: Session 2: Heel flap and heel turn
Saturday 18 March: Session 3: Gusset (set up and decreases), start foot
Saturday 25 March: Session 4: Toe (decreases and closing)
The workshop price includes all materials you need to create a pair of adult sized socks including: a simple sock pattern, a set of circular needles, a darning needle, stitch markers and a progress keeper and 100g of DK sock yarn - other yarns are available for an additional charge. Skill level: If you can cast on, knit, purl and decrease you can knit a sock! This course is not suitable for beginners to knitting.
Tutor: Adite Nair
The workshop runs over four weeks (Saturday 25 February, Saturday 4 March, Saturday 11 March, Saturday 18 March ) from 1.00 to 3.30pm and you do not need to attend every session as video tutorials will be made available each week. You must be available to attend the first event and at least one other - I would highly recommend coming along to every one if you can.
The workshop is held at Brown Paper Loves, Inch's Yard, Newbury
