Two at a Time Socks
15 October, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm£45
Put second sock blues behind you with a special new masterclass from Sock Supremo, Jane Lithgow. You’ll learn how to cast on and work two socks on one long circular needle so that you work both socks simultaneously. Ideal for making sure your left and right stripes are identical or correspondent, working two at a time means there are two matching socks but just one finishing line. The class will cover toe-up and top-down knitting directions.
You will need to have previous experience of knitting socks, and be comfortable with casting on and knitting in the round. The class is ideal for anyone who has attended Jane’s other Sock knitting classes.
You will need to bring some 4ply/sock weight yarn and an 80cm circular knitting needle in your sock-knitting size of choice (e.g. 2-2.5mm).
