2-at-a-time Socks on a Magic Loop

Level – adventurous beginner, comfortable using fingering weight yarn Required skills – long tail cast on, magic loop (not required)

Materials:
o Yarn – approximately 400 yards of sock yarn, separated into 2 balls or cakes. (I usually wind a cake and then pull from the outside to wind a 2nd cake about the same size, leaving the 2 attached),
o Needle – US size 1 circular needle, approximately 40” – 47” in length.

This should be a needle with a very smooth join and flexible cable, like Addi or Knitter’s Pride, for example.

Objective – students will learn how to cast on two socks, to be worked cuff down simultaneously on a long circular needle. This technique could also be applied to mitts or sleeves. Students will leave with cuffs and partial sock legs that they can continue to knit, using a pattern distributed in class.

Cost:  $50

 

Afterthought Heels

Level – adventurous beginner, comfortable using fingering weight yarn

Required skills – students are expected to come to class with either the leg or foot of a
sock completed, ready for heel placement. (This class works well as a follow up to the 2-ata-
time on the Magic Loop class.)

Materials:

Socks in progress – students should come with at least one sock ready for heel
placement. This means either the leg of a cuff down sock or the foot of a toe up
sock is complete. Socks must be knit in the round, but can be done using any method
(magic loop, dpns, etc.)

Waste yarn – about 20 yards of yarn in the same weight but different color from
your in-progress socks. Don’t choose a super sticky or fuzzy yarn for this.

Objective – students will learn how to knit an afterthought heel in their socks. This
technique works with both cuff down and toe up socks knit in the round.

Cost: $50
