6/11/2021 Christmas Sock Knitting Workshop with West Yorkshire Spinners' Christmas Yarn - (10am -4pm) York

Every year West Yorkshire Spinners brings out a fabulous limited edition Christmas yarn and  exclusive sock pattern – they always sell like proverbial hotcakes. This year we’ve ordered extra for our Christmas Sock Knitting Class.

You will first learn how to create festive socks from scratch with red or green DK yarn then you will leave class with a 100gram 4 ply ball of WYS Christmas wool, the right sized needles and a full-size pattern, along with the ability to up-scale what you have learned. You will also take home your perfectly formed mini Christmas sock and the pattern to create more  – think cute festive bunting and tree decorations!

In class, you will be introduced to:

  • Knitting on double pointed needles
  • Knitting a heel flap
  • Turning a heel
  • Picking up stitches
  • Grafting (Kitchener stitch)

Attendees must already be able to:

  • Cast on
  • Knit
  • Purl
  • Cast off

Taught by knitwear designer Fiona Drake.
