Instructor: Kerry Maas
We will be doing two things in this class: 1) knitting a miniature toe-up sock, so that participants can experience all the parts of toe-up sock knitting; and 2) using our foot measurements, knitting gauge, and math to work out the recipe for knitting socks to fit our feet.
Students will leave the class with a miniature toe-up sock and a personal recipe for knitting their own full-sized toe-up socks.
Please note: this is a six-hour class, with a break for lunch at noon.
Minimum number of students: 2
Maximum number: 5
Skill level: Intermediate. Students must be able to knit on double-pointed needles (or some equivalent used for small-circumference knitting), be familiar with short rows (we will use two different kinds), and know how to do the crochet provisional cast on and make-one (M1) increases.
Notes: Participants should bring:
- 1 yard of waste yarn (preferably not feltable wool) close to the same size as the main yarn
- 5 yards of yarn in a size between fingering and worsted weight
- A set of needles that work best with the chosen yarn
- A crochet hook sized to work with that yarn
