Class: Knitting Lace Socks

August 8, 15, and 22 (Saturday) | 2:00-5:00 | $75

This class is already full, but we will be offering it again in the future.

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.

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).

In progress: Pheasant L'orange

What you need to know how to do:
- cast on
- the knit stitch

- you should have some previous sock knitting experience

What we'll teach you how to do:
- twisted stitches
- incorporate lace stitches into a sock pattern
- read charts

What materials are included:

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 within 48 hours of the class, we will cancel the class and contact you in regards to rescheduling or a refund. 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.
