Toe-Up Socks at Redux

  • Redux Art Center 1056 King Street Charleston, SC United States (map)

Join me at Redux Contemporary Art Studio in January for a two-part sock class! The toe-up sock knitting technique is, quite honestly, more fun than I expected it to be!

Class will be Tuesday nights, Jan 8 & 15, from 5:30-7:30.

Register here: Redux
Day: Tuesdays, January 8th and 15th, 2019
Time: 5:30-7:30pm
Instructor: Tamara Evans of KnitOasis 
Cost: $75 for Redux Members / $95 for NonMembers
Ages: 14+

Toe-Up Socks?? Are you ready to turn your knitting upside down?
You’ll learn the fun Eastern/Turkish cast-on and the German short row heel. 

This class is for knitters who have mastered the basics of cast on plus knit, purl, increases, and decreases. It will help if you know a little about sock knitting, but it’s not required. You’re going to LOVE this method of knitting socks!

Materials needed:

NEEDLES: US size 2 (2.75 mm) double pointed needles, set of 5, at least 6 inches long

YARN: 100 gram of sock yarn (also called fingering weight or super fine or size 1) I’m using Patons Kroy Socks (75% washable wool, 25% nylon). PLEASE have your yarn balled and ready to use!

ALSO: stitch markers, scissors, row counter, a pen or pencil for taking notes
