Knitting a Pair of Socks

Loading Events

With Chris Marlow

November 21, December 5 & 12, 2:00-4:00pm

Autumn is a wonderful time to knit a pair of socks – thinking of how cozy they will feel with your winter boots or for making a precious gift.

In three sessions we will knit the cuff, turn the heel, create the instep, and complete the foot and toe for a pair of socks, working both socks at the same time, on separate needles. It will be necessary to know casting on and the knit and purl stitches.

Plant-dyed worsted weight wool will be provided. Yarn is locally sourced from upstate NY farms and spinning mills, and plant-dyed by hand at the Fiber Craft Studio.

You will need to have a set of size 6 or size 8 double pointed needles, two sets would be ideal. We will have some to purchase.
