Recurring Event Event Series: First Socks

First Socks

January 21 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am


Have you always wanted to knit socks, but have been too intimidated? Stress no more! In this three session class (Saturdays, January 14, 21 & 28), we will discuss the anatomy of a sock and learn how to knit them cuff down on DPNs using the Rose City Rollers pattern by Mara Catherine Bryner. Each session will teach you a different sock part and by the end of the series, you will have a completed sock!

Skills Required: Please know how to cast on, knit and purl. Some experience knitting in the round and/or knitting with small needles would be helpful, but not necessary.

Materials to bring from home or purchase:

  • 50-75 grams (about 200-350 yards) of fingering weight yarn
  • One set of size 1 US or 1.5 US (2.25mm or 2.5mm) DPNs or size needed to obtain gauge
  • Download the free pattern here and bring to class printed or on your device (whichever you prefer)
  • Stitch markers
