LEARN TO KNIT SOCKS COURSE :: 4, 11 & 18 AUGUST

£92.00

Knit your own socks! This course will run over three weeks at an adorable cafe around the corner from the shop complete with cake and a cuppa for everyone. 

Join us for this in person 3-week sock knitting course tucked in a lovely wee cafe across the street from the shop. 

We will cover all the basics of knitting in the round while working on a cosy house sock to practise and develop your skill with a different focus each week. The dates are as follows:

  • Sunday  4 August at 4:30pm - 6:30pm: In the first session we will cast on and go over how to start knitting magic loop then begin knitting the cuff of our sock. 
  • Sunday 11 August at 4:30pm - 6:30pm: The exciting bit! This week we will turn the heel of the sock- the key skill to sock making.
  • Sunday 18 August at 4:30pm - 6:30pm: Finally we will decrease and graft the toe stitches together to finish off our seamless sock.

Your tuition includes a cuppa and bit of cake during each class, along with a kit that will be waiting for you at the workshop. The workshop allows for a maximum of 6 students, so grab a pal to come along too! 

Skills required: You should already know how to knit and purl comfortably, preferably using circular needles or double-pointed pins.

Your kit includes:

  • 100grams of Aran weight wool from recycled wool textiles in a colour of your choosing (enough for making an adult pair of socks)

What you need to bring or purchase beforehand (not included)

  • Circular knitting needles in size 4.5mm (80cm long) or you could use a set of double-pointed pins. It is important to have these exact sizes and length! (Get in touch if you need help).
  • stitch markers
  • Darning needle

Your chosen kit will be waiting for you at the workshop. You will be emailed all the details after you make your booking.
