Brand new and experienced sock knitters will love to knit cuff down socks on 9” circulars. Learning this smooth and easy construction technique allows you to concentrate on the elements of the sock: leg, heel flap & turn, gusset and toe.
Not sure about the 9” circulars then you can use double pointed needles.
If you can knit and purl, you can knit socks!
For circular method: 9” circular needle size US size 1 AND DPNS US size 1
DPN method: US size 1 DPNS
Pattern, stitch marker, scissors and tape measure
*I recommend getting 2 sets of needles so you can use one set for class and use the 2nd set at home to work on the other sock and reinforce what you learned in class, PLUS you’ll have a completed pair sooner.
Thurs., September 9 or October 7

Back by popular demand! Curious about the latest buzz word in knitting, helical? Made popular recently when working with 2 skeins of hand dyed yarns. This technique keeps hand dyed yarns, which typically don’t have dye lots from pooling or showing a demarcation line. This skill is also used in knitting stripes to create a jogless join.
In this class you’ll learn the technique by knitting a striped child’s hat. The contrasting colors make it easy to see the process and follow along.

Ohhhh, Lucy! The Lucy Bag is a hand-bag or shoulder-bag for everyday use. The soft shape gives the bag a Boho, yet feminine, feel. It is knit in the round, from the bottom up, in one piece. The only seaming is grafting the straps together. Make it to carry your knitting project or with a longer strap to carry even more. Once felted, it is resistant to stretching even when carrying heavy loads. It will hold everything securely with the interlocking straps forming the knot closure.
Week one will be for knitting the circular bottom using double point needles until it is comfortable to switch to circular needles and start the body of the bag. Two weeks later we will set up the handles and continue knitting. The third class we will graft (Kitchener stitch) the straps and celebrate our first Lucy Bag. You will want more than one!Materials: 3 skeins 100 gm each of 100% Wool such as Germantown or Universal from The Knitter’s Nest, please.
Needles: size 10.5 double points and 10.5 circular 24”
