Sock Knitting Workshop Brighton with Tom of Holland is aimed at the intermediate knitter, who already knows the basics.
Socks are a lot of fun to knit, and once you have mastered the basics, will allow for endless experimentation. They are the perfect thing to knit in summer as they are small and portable projects on the go.
Tom’s sock knitting course is aimed at the intermediate knitter, who already knows how to cast on, cast off, knit, purl, increase and decrease. Participants will be expected to knit between classes.
During this three-week course Tom will teach you how to knit in the round, and create a pair of socks, knitted from the cuff down. Meeting on three consecutive Sundays to go through all the techniques necessary to knit well-fitting socks.
These include knitting in the round on double-pointed needles, turning the heel and finishing the toe.
All liberally sprinkled with hints and tips along the way to create a well-fitting pair of socks.
By the end of the three weeks, you will have at least one sock, all the knowledge to knit sock number two, three, four, and more!
Included in the price will be a comprehensive hand-out to refer back to the techniques learnt, and a project sheet to record all the necessary details for sock knitting for a specific person.
