PART I (September 15):

Back by popular demand and with plenty of time for holiday gift-giving:  It’s the famous slipper sock!  Yay! What makes this sock so darned special? (Sorry.  Vanessa has no restraint when it comes to lousy puns.)  Well, it’s super cute, is fairly quick to make (thick yarn and big needles – well, big for socks anyway), makes the perfect gift, and is one of the best ways to learn how to make a sock.  

Last year, we featured this sock in Malabrigo Mecha; this year, Vanessa made a sample in Malabrigo Arroyo held double.   This class was so popular last year, it filled right away and we had to add two extra sessions.  At the end of the class, not only will you know how to make a sock, you will have knocked a holiday gift off your list early.  Call Yarns By Design today to register.  

 

DETAILS:

Using their preferred method for knitting in the round (Magic Loop, DPNs, or two circular needles), students will make the very popular Veronica Van Slipper Sock pattern available on Ravelry. 

  

SKILLS TAUGHT:

• Knitting a heel flap

• Turning a heel

• Picking up the gusset stitches

• Decreasing the gusset

 

SKILLS every student MUST already have mastered:

• Knitting in the round

  

PART 2 (September 29):

There’s a sequel to everything these days, and sock knitting classes are no different.  But unlike that terrible movie you’ll never admit you saw twice in the theatre (your secret is safe with us), this class is worth your time.  If the thought of using Kitchener stitch to close your sock toe keeps you up at night or if you have gotten lost along the way, Knitting Your First Sock (part 2) is here to help you finish that sock.  We know you can do it!

 

SKILLS TAUGHT:

• Kitchener Stitch

• Individual review of anything from part 1 causing lost sleep or an increase in any chocolate consumption habits.  

 

Cost: $35 each / $70 for both parts 1 and 2 group class, pre-registration is required.
