If you have worked the top down training sock or are confident knitting in the round with double pointed needles and are ready to try your skills with “real” sock yarn this class is for you.  Or if you have ever thought you might like to knit socks but worried about the commitment (all those tiny stitches) or thought it might be too hard. In one class you will knit a sock the size of baby bootie that will cover all the techniques needed to knit the full size socks you may be coveting. You may even finish the sock in class!

Level 4 Pygora: ready to hybridize, able to knit and purl, knit in the round and increase and decrease in knitting or crocheting

  • Long tail cast on
  • Knit and purl
  • Ssk (slip, slip, knit), k2tog (knit two together), s1 (slip 1 stitch)
  • Comfortable knitting in the round with 4 or 5 needles – like finishing the top of a hat).
