knitting series 301: socks

It's time to make your own pair of socks!

In this class you will learn to knit a cozy pair of socks from the top down using worsted weight yarn. This is a great first class to learn how to knit in the round using the magic loop technique. Also great as a refresher class, if you have already made a pair come try them in a different weight yarn.

This class is for our intermediate knitters who want to learn how to knit in the round. Students need to be confident in the knit, purl and rib stitch. 

In class students will also learn how to:
- make socks for all your family and friends in all different weight yarns.
