Knit With Me
In Person My First Knitted Sock Workshop - Sunday 21st, 28th January & 4th February 2024, 2pm-4pm
I’m super excited that you are interested in making your first knitted socks. I remember making my first pair and being blown away with such a sense of achievement and I know you will too.
This course is perfect for people who are happy and experienced with casting-on, joining in the round and knitting and purling whilst using the magic loop technique. I will be teaching you how to knit a cuff down sock with a heel flap, heel turn, gusset and a grafted toe.
