This workshop, with guest tutor Stella Ackroyd, is a chance for beginner sock knitters to get to grip with the basic techniques involved in the construction of hand knitted socks. Rather than attempting to work through a whole sock,  will be working on a swatch that will allow us to cover the following:

  • Casting on and joining in the round with Double Pointed Needles
  • Knitting in the round
  • Turning a heel
  • Shaping and closing a toe

The Course fee includes:

  • A ball of plain sock yarn in a colour of your choice that will be sufficient for the workshop and for you to take away and knit a whole pair of socks at home
  • A set of Bamboo Double Pointed Needles
  • Swatch instructions
  • A pattern for a full, simple plain sock to take away 
  • Expert Tuition
  • Light Refreshments
