Event description

Description

Toe-Up Socks for Travellers A spontaneous method for producing toe-up socks. These little gems require very little advance planning. The class project is most of a mini sock.
Using a provisional cast-on we will work a Bosnian toe square (or rectangle) using waste yarn wraps to mark the knit-up positions. Establishing knitting in the round and positioning left and right raised increases. Planning, setting-in and knitting the modified Turkish heel and use of waste yarn to create the heel opening. The sock toe-chimney will be used for easy grafting (Kitchener stitch) of the heel. A variety of top options will be offered to prevent tight sock cuffs. The various techniques are applicable to many other areas of knitting.
Supplies 20g each of smooth wool-blend yarns (these need not be ‘sock’ yarns) in Worsted or DK/Sport (5 sts per inch or fewer) in 2 or more solid, light colours. Fine sock yarns and needles may be used, but is far easier to see the details of your stitches and techniques in larger yarns and plain, light colours.
One set of 5 dpns in size 3 - 4mm, US 3 - 5. If you prefer working on circular needles (one or two) bring a suitable selection.
Four smaller size dpns (for picking up stitches).
Scraps of waste yarn
Darning needle
Usual knitting paraphernalia
Homework None
