LEARN TO KNIT: Top-Down Socks (materials included)

Friday 3rd December 2021 10am - 3pm with Nicky Jerrome in the beautiful countryside setting of Chesterblade Hills

Now is the time to learn a new skill, and socks make a great gift. Once you start knitting socks, you won’t stop. These little mini socks would make a great tree decoration and with the rest of your 150g ball of DK weight sock yarn and double pointed needles to take home, you may well finish a full sized pair by Christmas!

 You will be learning.

How to cast on​ and join in the round
Knit in the round on double pointed needles
Turn a heel (not as scary as it sounds)
Work the toe
Finish the toe

The sock pattern will be using 3.25mm double pointed needles and a DK sock wool.

The cost of the workshop includes a set of KnitpPro Zing Double Pointed Needles (DPNs) and a ball of Opal 8ply sock wool. Tea/coffe, biscuits and a light lunch will be provided. If you have any special dietary requirements, please let us know well in advance.

Skills required: Confident beginner - intermediate: Able to cast-on/bind-off and knit and purl confidently. Experience knitting in the round is a bonus but not essential.

Materials Included: A set of five 3.25mm KnitPro Zing double pointed needles and a 150g ball of multi-coloured Opal sock yarn will be provided on the day.

Homework required: None
