Class: Knitting Lace Socks

June 13, 20, and 27 (Saturdays) | 2:00-5:00 | $75 $50 | Materials Included

Due to some unexpected scheduling events, we are dropping this to a $50, 2-week class. The first class will be on Saturday June 13th (we'll do the cuff and get you started on the lace pattern) and the second class will be on June 20th (we'll do the heel flap, turn the heel, and get you started on gusset decreases). Should you get stuck on your toe-closing, we are all experienced sock knitters here at the shop and you can stop by for help any time.

If you have knit socks previously, and are wanting to learn more about lace patterns and chart reading, this is the class for you. Knit cuff-down on US size 1 double-point needles, this intermediate lace pattern also incorporates columns of stitches knit through the back loop - trust me, those really pop out and make the pattern look fantastic! This class is also for those of us who love Lorna's Laces. Pheasant Run (Ravel it!) is designed by Wildhorse Farms Designs using Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn, and you'll be able to choose from any of our in-stock colorways to make your socks.

In progress: Pheasant L'orange

This is not a good class for a first-time sock knitter; but if you have previous experience knitting socks and are familiar with basic sock construction, this is the class for you (even if you've never knit lace before).

Classes do fill up early; so please reserve your space in the class by paying in advance as it is unlikely we will be able to accommodate walk-ins. Payment is required within 7 days of signing up for the class or within one week before the class begins (whichever comes first). All classes limited to five people unless otherwise stated. A minimum of 2 students is required for most classes to take place. If the minimum for a class is not reached, we will cancel or reschedule the class and a full refund will be given. Individual classes/lessons available by request (prices may vary). Homework is required in most of our classes; we know that all of you have busy schedules but please be sure to allow time to finish the work needed for classes.
