Knitting Level 3: Socks - Top Down on DPNS


If you've always wanted to learn the time-honoured tradition of sock knitting and are ready to work on double-pointed needles and learn the Kitchener stitch, this is the class for you!

All our Level 3 sock classes teach short rows for shaping the heel, picking up stitches (excepting toe up on circulars), shaping with decreases, grafting a seam, as well as pattern interpretation and fixing of common mistakes.   Our patterns call for chunky weight yarn which means your socks knit up faster and you'll be able to start the 2nd sock as well.
