Top Down Socks with Cheryl Toy

Join Cheryl for a top to bottom look at a method for knitting socks two-at-a-time on two circular needles. The pattern features a short-row heel using the Shadow Wrap method. Learn how socks work, casting on, the mechanics of working in the round with two circular needles and turning the heel. You’ll knit a sock of your choice with worsted-weight, 8-ply sock yarn that works up very quickly and produces a large stitch that is easy to see. Learn to knit the foot, shape the toe and pick up finishing tips. Pre-requisite: Experience knitting in the round. Bring: Needles & yarn. Details provided with registration.

3 Hour Workshop – Sun 9:00 to 12:00
