Join our quarterly sock club and become a master sock knitter. We will learn a different technique each season. This quarter we will learn to make a lacey sock perfect for spring. You will choose from several lace patterns to make the leg and instep of the sock. Learn to read a simple chart and how to keep track of your place in the lace. Please be an experience sock knitter comfortable with sock weight yarn and needles. We will not complete the sock in class! We will also discuss how to adapt a lace pattern of choice to a sock pattern.
If you are new to socks, please take one of our many beginning sock classes and join us next quarter!
