Knit Your Own Socks [Feb 2022]

The ultimate in style self-sufficiency – learn to knit your own socks! While this is not a course for the absolute beginner, it’s suitable for anyone who knows how to cast on and off, knit and purl. We will knit one whole sock together in class and you can take what you’ve learned to knit the other one at home.

The course takes place at our Stretford Mall Pop Up on the following dates:

Thurs 3rd Feb, 6:30-8:00pm
Thurs 10th Feb, 6:30-8:00pm
Thurs 17th Feb, 6:30-8:00pm

Skills: Casting on and knitting in the round, rib stitch, knitting a sock heel and toe. We will aim to complete one sock in this course and depending on the speed of your knitting you may need to do some homework.

Bring: You will need to bring your own knitting needles the size of needles you will need are 2.5mm – 3mm circular needles with at least a 60cm wire. Wool is included in the price, but our range of colours is limited so you might want to bring your own if you have a specific colour in mind. If you do want to bring your own wool you will need to get the same thickness as your needles (2.5mm-3mm)

Level: Beginners to Intermediate, suitable for anyone who knows how to cast on and off, knit and purl.

WEEK 1: Get to grips with knitting in the round and start off your sock by knitting the ribbed cuff and down to the heel. Depending on the speed of your knitting, you may need to finish this at home.

WEEK 2: Creating the heel of the sock and knitting the foot.

WEEK 3: Completing your sock by knitting the toe.Level: Confident beginner – you’ll need to know how to cast on and off, knit and purl. No experience of knitting in the round is necessary.
