Christmas Stocking Class – Intermediate Beginner $108 +tax
Learn how to cast on and knit a basic cuff-down sock, on double pointed needles. Have you ever wanted to learn sock knitting, but thought that superfine sock yarn was too daunting? This adorable stocking is knitted in worsted, for a quicker than quick finish and a stocking completed in time for Christmas gifting. Plus, you’ll have enough yarn left over after the class for a second stocking! You’ll also learn: jogless stripes, grafting, and duplicate stitching.
6 hours over three sessions
Required supplies: Two skeins of Berroco Vintage in contrasting colours (plus a complimentary 20g of white), one set 4.5mm double pointed needles (8” long), scissors, tapestry needle.
Supplies can be bought at the store with a 15% class discount, or can be brought from home.
Pattern is supplied with class.
This is an intermediate beginner class. Students must be familiar with cast on, knit, purl, and decreasing. There will be knitting homework between classes.
Knitting in the round experience is strongly recommended, especially with DPNs. Please come in to the shop for more information on recommended practice prior to class.
Two separate in-store classes offered:
Saturday December 2, 9, 16 from 2:30 – 4:30pm
Friday December 1, 8, 15 from 11:00am – 1:00pm
Note: Please purchase your supplies PRIOR to class day, as you will need time to choose colours, and we will need time to wind your yarns and get you set up for class.
Private lessons can also be scheduled depending on teacher availability. Want to learn a different craft?? Call and find out if we can teach you!
