2-at-a-Time Socks on 2 Circulars Cuff-Down with Antje Gillingham
Practice the anatomy of a sock in sections, and get comfortable knitting socks two at a time on two circular needles from the cuff down. No more counting rows or experiencing the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome!
While we won't be able to finish a complete adult pair of socks in one day, we will have a lot of fun during this innovative workshop. By the time you get back to your hotel room, you will be ready to apply your class pattern and cast on your very own awesome pair of 2-at-a-time socks.
Homework; two extra balls (each a different color) of light-colored, #4 (worsted-weight) yarn, 3.75mm/US 5 — 16" and 24" circular needles; point protectors; Post-it notepad.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
Knit 2 tubes which will be used to practice the heel turn. For each, use a different, light-colored, worsted-weight yarn (no cotton/cotton blends) and 3.75mm/US 5 needles of your choice. CO 40 sts and join in the round, being careful not to twist sts. Work k1, p1 rib for 2", then knit all sts until each tube measures 4" from cast-on. DO NOT cut yarn or bind off. Put stitches on a stitch holder or waste yarn.
