Socks 101: Beginning Sock Knitting

Intimidated by socks? Don't be! They're not as hard as you think they are. We'll cover the different methods of knitting socks - from needle management to construction differences, and work on one or more small "class socks" to try out the techniques.

Students will also receive a pattern for a pair of house socks knit in worsted weight wool, and may even have time to begin working on them in class.

Skill Level Required: Beginner - Knitting in the round, decreases.

Homework: N/A
