Toe-Up Sock Knitting with Jane Lithgow.
WHEN BOOKING A CLASS ONLINE, OTHER THAN BY CALLING THE SHOP, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PUT YOUR PHONE NUMBER AND EMAIL IN THE 'NOTES' PART OF THE ORDER. MANY THANKS.
Learn to knit socks from the toe up. Participants need to be able to knit, purl, increase, decrease, cast on and cast off and ideally knit in the round although this isn’t essential.
Over the next two weeks you will cover the following:
The anatomy of a sock
Achieving a good fit
Knitting in the round using the magic loop
Casting on using Judi’s magic cast on
Creating a wedge toe with lifted increases. For homework you will need to knit the foot.
Reverse flap and gusset heel which includes lifted increases, short rows and slip stitches.
Stretchy cast offs.
We will also talk about and have a chance to look at alternative toes and heels for socks.
Please bring an 80 cm 2.5mm circular needle with a smooth join to class. We recommend ChiaoGoo or Addi Sock Rockets for ease of use, pointy tips and a beautiful seamless join.
All yarn will be provided
100% deposit is required at registration.
Full refund of payment for a class will be given for cancellations only if the spot can be filled by another student. Please be considerate. We reserve the right to cancel a class in unusual circumstances. We try to avoid this wherever possible, but sometimes it cannot be avoided. In this situation, of course, a full refund will be given.
We're sorry but Loop can not be financially responsible for extreme weather conditions or any other situations that are out of its' control.
