One 4-hour class
Instructor: Kristen Bucci
Skill level: Intermediate Knit

Not your typical sock construction, these are fun to knit and make great gifts since they are “one size fits most” and do not take a lot of yarn. Great to wear around the house or for travel slippers.

Techniques students will learn in this class:

  • Turn heel
  • Creating vertical to horizontal seams
  • Kitchener grafting

This intermediate project is appropriate for students who have previous experience knitting small circumference (e.g., socks, mittens, sleeves) with either double pointed needles (DPNs) or Magic Loop.

Supplies needed:

  • Yarn: One skein of fingering-weight yarn
  • Needle: US 3 (3.25mm) FlexiFlips, DPNs, or 32″ cable for Magic Loop
  • Stitch markers
  • Darning needle

The shop sample is knit with Spud & Chloƫ Stripey Fine in Orange Cream.

Please purchase your supplies prior to class day. There is pre-work for this class.

Pre-Work:
Using the long-tail method, start with a 36″ tail and cast on 42 sts (remaining tail will be used later so DO NOT trim it!)

Work 3 rows as follows:
Row 1 (WS): Knit.
Row 2 (RS): Purl.
Row 3 (WS): Knit.

Bring your stitch markers and darning needle to class along with your pre-work.

You may register for classes in person or by calling the shop at 614-734-0618 during regular business hours. We require that you make payment in full when you register.
