Take your sock knitting to the next level!

If you are a newer sock knitter looking to try something new, or a more experienced sock knitter looking to personalize sock patterns, this workshop is for you! In this 4 hour workshop, we will cover different techniques for casting on both toe-up and top-down, different heels and how to substitute them into your favorite pattern, and different methods of binding off your sock.

*Please note that we will not be knitting a complete sock during the workshop. We will be casting on lots of swatches to give everyone a chance to try the techniques out.

Materials needed:

  • 100-150 yds worsted weight yarn – scraps are fine

  • US 5 (3.75 mm) needles – DPNs, 2 circulars, or Magic Loop, your choice!

  • Darning needle

About Holly

Holly taught herself to knit in 2004 in an attempt to occupy her hands and mind. This experiment turned into a passion for the craft and has led to a love of spinning and dabbling in crochet. Holly’s passion for all things fibery is evident in her love for teaching brand new knitters and sock enthusiasts; she can always be found with a pair of socks on the needles (along with the occasional sweater or shawl). She has designed socks for the book Pints and Purls, as well as for fibre space, and her own Ravelry shop, sheepish creations. Holly loves to research and try new techniques to help others make their sock knitting experiences easier, with better fitting socks as the result. When she’s not teaching or working, she can be found planning her next trip, or, during hockey season, cheering on the Caps.
