Our Sock Knitting Course will provide you with all the skills to finally cast on your first pair of socks and deal with challenges you’ll encounter on the way.

During this three-week course, you will cast on the Cuff Down Socks, a pattern designed by your teacher, Roos Vlaskamp (The Wooly One on Instagram). The pattern involves a heel flap, a much-used heel finishing technique you’ll find useful for your future sock explorations.

This course will teach you: 

  • How to cast on and cast off a sock
  • To knit socks on circular needles using magic loop technique, or
  • To knit socks on Double Pointed Needles (DPNs)
  • The widely-used heel-flap technique
  • To master the Kitchener Stitch for you cast-off

What skills will you need?

You don’t need to be an expert knitter for this course, however we ask that you are confident in your knitting. Over the course of the project you’ll have to do ribbing, increase, decrease and, possibly, correct your mistakes. If this sounds doable to you, please be welcome to join!

Materials included
The class fee does not include wool and needles. You’ll need circular needles that match your yarn, big enough to accommodate the Magic Loop, or double pointed needles.
During classes you will receive an additional 10% discount on all the materials needed for the workshop or project.*
