Learn to Knit Socks! Basic Sock Class


Tuesdays, June 18th and 25th, 3-5 PM

This is a two-session class that will kick off our Sock Summer at Maker+Stitch! We will meet over the last two Tuesdays in June.

In Basic Sock, we’ll have fun learning the few tasks that often intimidate would-be sock makers! No need to be afraid, we'll have excellent instruction and we will work together to learn and hone sock-making skills. We’ll learn turning a heel, fitting socks, and knitting and finishing a toe. For our pair of socks, we’ll use a DK weight yarn that you will choose at Maker+Stitch. Our first pair of socks will knit up quickly, and our finished product will be soft and fun to wear.

Expected participant knowledge: casting on, knit, purl, k2tog and ssk decreases, magic loop if you plan to use it.

We require that you purchase your yarn at Maker+Stitch; yarn is not included in the cost of the class. Participants will need to bring (or purchase at Maker+Stitch) US 5, 6, or 7 double points or circulars long enough for magic looping. Other necessary supplies are stitch markers and a finishing needle.

Classes will be held in the shop. Please contact us with any questions.
