About This Event

*This is a two part class*

Skills required: 

  • Picking up stitches
  • Knitting in the round (DPNs or Magic Loop)
  • SSK and K2tog

Do you like knitted socks but dislike the endless stockinette? Then this class is for you! Learn to create a pair of vanilla socks from a cranked tube with Leanna. The first class students will be learning how to separate their tube and picking up stitches for your toe. The second class will be how to measure and place your afterthought heel! 

You have two options to ensure you are prepared for this class:

  1. Bring in your sock skeins to Black Sheep and Jorstad Creek in order to be cranked. The fee for the first skein is included in the class price. Please make sure to drop them off before March 29th.
  2. Come in a shop for the perfect skein of sock yarn for the class and get a 10% discount on that purchase. Valid until March 29th.

There will be yarn left over to use for heels, toes, and cuffs. You are also welcome to bring a coordinating color. You will need about 20g of a complimentary sock yarn. 

Students will need to bring:

  1. Sock needles, sizes 1, 1.5, and 2 in order to match the gauge of the cranked tube. Double point needles or long circulars for Magic Loop will work.
  2. Waste yarn
  3. Darning needle
  4. Scissors
  5. Locking Stitch Markers
  6. Foot length measurement from toe to heel (class 2)

Please note that any additional skeins you want cranked will be an additional $10 fee.
