Event description
Learn how to knit your own cosy wool socks with Lola Johnson of 'Third Vault Yarns' in person or online - just in time for Christmas!

About this Event

At this time, we thought we would offer some knitting classes that not only introduce you to some new knitting skills or give you the opportunity to hone your existing skills but also provide a chance to meet (safely at a distance) other crafters. Classes will take place online via 'Zoom' (logging on details will be sent out to you)

This class is part of a series of knitting classes on Thursday evenings in November and December. Join 1 or a series! A discount is offered when you book the series.

To make the most of this session, we recommend that you have some basic knitting skills such as knowing how to cast on, knit & purl stitch and how to cast off. If you have attended our beginners knitting class or equivalent you will be fine!

The class is taught by Lola Johnson. Lola is the dyer and designer behind Third Vault Yarns. With years of experience from learning to knit at a young age, she has taken that experience into designing patterns using a wide range of techniques - which she delights in sharing and helping others to build their skills with fun and different patterns. Designs for Lola's classes will draw inspiration from her books "Board Game Knits"

Put your best foot forward and be guided with Lola Johnson through the process of knitting socks from top to toe! In the class you will create a mini sock (which can be used as a Christmas decoration) to try out all parts of knitting a sock. You will also receive a pattern to make your own full sized versions following the same methodology learnt in the class.

On completion of this workshop, participants will confidently be able to:

- Make socks 'on the round' using 4 needles

- Work from the toe upwards

- Use a 'closed cast on' to graph the toe area

- Experience 3d knitting

- Make a 'short row heal'

- Create ribbing for elastication and cast off

- Follow a simple sock pattern from start to finish

You will require: A set of 4 needles 4mm needles and some DK yarn. You will be eligible for a 10% discount when purchasing knitting supplies for any of our knitting classes in our shop. Items can be posted out before the class.

Included: A full size sock pattern
