Warping will be done at home and threading will be done in class. Please ask for warping instructions when you register.

    In this class you will learn how to knit a pair of socks that fit you well without a pattern. You will measure your gauge from a homework swatch and then use some basic instructions and measurements to knit a top-down sock that fits comfortably. The goal of this class is to give you the confidence to knit a pair of socks with any yarn and needles without having to use a pattern.

    Please bring to class: Your gauge swatch, a 100g ball of yarn in the weight you have chosen, and the needles used to create your gauge swatch, and a measuring tape. You can use sock weight yarn, or any other gauge you would like to create your socks in.

    Prerequisites:  Must be comfortable with knitting, purling, and decreases. Should be familiar with sock construction.

    Cost: $65
