About this experience

Class Schedule: Thursday, August 1, 8, 15.  6 - 8 PM

Instructor: Josie Sutterer

This class is three sessions long. Please ensure you are available for each session before booking your spot. See cancellation policy below. 

Let's demystify sock knitting! Knitting socks on a 9-inch circular needle is a technique that many sock knitters swear by. We will tackle not only small circumference needles but also long-tail cast on, the infamous heel flap and gusset, and how to use magic loop & kitchener stitch for the toe while following I'm So Basic Socks by Summer Lee Design Co.

Techniques You'll Learn

  • Long tail cast-on
  • Heel flap & gusset
  • Magic loop technique
  • Kitchener stitch
  • Knitting on 9" circulars

Prerequisites

  • Knit
  • Purl

This is NOT an absolute beginner class. Please be aware that class time will not be spent on reteaching the aforementioned prerequisites.

Ages: 14+

Supplies to Bring

  • 100g of a fingering weight sock yarn (something with a nylon content)
  • US 1 9 inch circular needle
  • US 1 24, 32, or 40 inch circular needle for magic loop
  • A notebook and pencil if you would like to take notes

If planning to purchase yarn the day of class, please arrive 20-30 minutes early. Staff is more than happy to help guide you to what yarn and needles we recommend, but we appreciate if you come with some time to spare before class.

Hello! My name is Josie, and I would love to be your instructor. I have been crocheting most of my life and knitting for about 3 years now. I am almost completely self-taught, and I love a good challenge, so I like to tackle projects with new to me skills. I love making socks, sweaters, summer tops, and all kinds of other things!
