FULL - This workshop banishes ‘second sock syndrome’ – if you have never heard of this, it is when you have completed 1 sock, but can’t face casting on the second!
It also ensures both socks are precisely the same size, as they are worked together.
Getting the toe and heel completed first also means you can then use up your yarn on the cuff, without fear you won’t have enough yarn to finish the toe.
This technique is win-win all round!
Skills Required – you need to be proficient in knit and purl stitches, and casting off.
Techniques taught in the workshop will include;
- casting on the toe
- shaping the toe
- turning the heel
- an excellent stretchy cast off
We will also cover how to size the pattern up for any size of sock.
In the workshop we will use a DK yarn to make a pair of mini sample socks on which you will practice the above techniques, but the limited time means the socks will be a sample size only. The techniques used in the workshop are the same as those required for an adult sock and can be adapted to a variety of yarn weights and sock sizes.
Full written instructions will be provided, so you will be able to repeat the techniques at home on further projects.
