  • Cost: No charge, but it would be preferred if some of your yarn for your socks is purchased at Knit Stitch
  • Teacher: Jody Campbell
  • Dates: Stitch Nights, Thursday June 7, 14 and 21 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Take your sock knitting to a new level with the lovely new pattern from the incomparable Joji Locatelli.  We’ll make the socks as a guided knit along, so Jody will be giving us her tips and tricks as we cover techniques like the Eastern Purl, jogless stripes, how to control your tension in the lace section along with turning heels and the Kitchener stitch for grafting toes.

In the first session we’ll cast on, knit the striped section, and start into the lace pattern.  The second session will cover turning the heel and starting to knit the foot, and at the third session we’ll graft our toes and cast on our second sock!

Participants can download the pattern from Ravelry here or you can purchase it through Knit Stitch.

There will be a draw for a $25.00 gift card from Knit Stitch at the last gathering where we’ll celebrate our creations!
