Master the art of knitting the perfect pair of toe-up socks in this two-part workshop led by Julie Cowan.
STARTING SATURDAY 12th FEBRUARY 2022 – 1:30pm – 4:30pm
Throughout this two-part in-person workshop you will receive expert guidance and step by step instruction from casting on your first stitch through to casting off your final one and completing your fabulous pair of socks!
We promise – knitting socks is not as tricky as you might think – and once you’ve cracked it, they’re a great ‘portable project’ that you can take anywhere with you.
Over these two sessions, your experienced tutor, Julie Cowan, will teach you how to knit the perfect pair of socks from the toe up. Perfect for the novice/intermediate knitter, step-by-step you will be guided through all the techniques needed for you to master the art of sock knitting, including using circular needles and Magic Loop, slanting increases and seamless Turkish Cast On.
Whether you opt for plain, stripy, patterned or sparkly, your first pair of handmade socks will be something to treasure!
