About This Class

Learn how to knit a thick pair of worsted-weight socks from the cuff down!

This class is perfect for a beginner-intermediate knitter, who has finished their first couple of simple projects, like a scarf or a cowl, and are ready to build on those skills to make more accessories. Socks, unlike neckwear, have to be a certain fit to work well, and this class is a great introduction to knitting sized items. By enrolling in this class, you'll also get a PDF download of my sock pattern, so you can follow along with the video as you knit.

In this class, I'll teach you how to:

  • Knit a gauge swatch
  • Cast on in the round using the magic loop method
  • Make a turned heel 
  • Knit a sock gusset using picked up stitches
  • Graft live stitches together using the kitchener stitch. 

Sock knitting is a great way to practice new knitting techniques, and they knit up quickly on worsted weight yarn. I'll be teaching you how to knit these socks slowly, step-by-step, but I do recommend students know how to cast-on, and how to knit/purl.
