What happens in this class?

Join designer and knitting teacher Jacki from the Woolly Badger for 90 mins all about the joys of toe up socks.

In this friendly session we’ll be talking about:

  • The advantages of knitting toe up (there are a lot)
  • How to cast on and get started
  • Working magic loop vs using double pointed needles
  • Avoiding “ladders” at the edges of your socks
  • Different heels that work toe up - and how to substitute them

And plenty more. There’ll be plenty of time for questions, so grab a cup of tea and come join in.

What you will learn
  • Toe up cast-ons
  • Heel turns
  • Sock knitting tips and trips
What you will need
  • Just bring yourself
What’s included?
As well as getting 90mins of friendly knitting chat, the cost of the workshop includes a resource pack that covers everything we’ll talk about, a copy of the Lightning, Dogs and Bamboo knitting pattern, and a recording of the session.
Do I need to do any prep?
Nope, none at all. Although you might want to set yourself up with tea and biscuits.
What level is the workshop suitable for?
It’ll be assumed that you can work basic knit and purl stitches, but don’t worry if you’re yet to tackle anything beyond that.
