About the Course

Knit your own Socks or a Giant Christmas Stocking

Tuesday 6th November and Tuesday 20th November 2018- 7pm - 9.30pm

Join this fun, two-part workshop and learn how to make your own socks 'in the round' - either on double-pointed needles or a specially-designed circular needle - which means that there is absolutely no sewing up to be done afterwards.

Participants can choose from a wide selection of self-patterning sock wool, which does the colourwork for you, or alternatively opt for a thicker yarn to make one giant sock to use as a Christmas stocking with contrast heel and toe.

Handmade socks make wonderful presents, but knitting them carries a health warning, as sock-knitting can become addictive!

A £10 deposit is needed to secure your place. Pay this no later than a week before the event.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
