Designing Your Own Custom Fit Socks - Kate Atherley

  • PNE Hastings Room 1 2901 East Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V5K 5J1 Canada (map)

Liberate yourself from pattern books! Make a sock to meet your own unique needs, for your size foot, and in your choice of yarn.

Learn how to create a top-down or toe-up sock pattern for any yarn, and for any foot. I'll show you how to custom fit a sock for specific requirements, and how to make your own design customizations like pattern stitches and colorwork.

Supplies to bring: in addition to homework: paper, pencil, a tape measure and a calculator

Homework: optional - a roughly 5 by 5 inch swatch in the round using the yarn you wish to design a sock for; if it's sock yarn, use the needles recommended on the ball band; if it's non-sock yarn, use needles a couple of sizes smaller.

Class Level: Intermediate, knitters must have worked a few pairs of socks.

3 hour class - $120
