In-person with Whitney Vickers
Cost: $60 + supplies
Skill Level: Beginner
Easy, beginner socks you can knit in a weekend; once you've mastered the pattern, that is. Students will learn to knit in the round, to create ribbing and a heal flap, and to join knitting with the grafting stitch.
Students must be confident knitting, purling, and casting on before taking this class.
Knit a gauge swatch: 40 stitches and 28 rows, knit in stockinette, should make a 4" square. No time to knit a gauge swatch? Just wing it--the socks will fit someone!
Be sure to purchase your yarn and other supplies from Silk Road Textiles, online or in store!
