DPNs, magic loop, turning heels… this will all be second nature after a class on top-down socks. In this class you will knit a sock from the cuff down using your choice of double pointed needles, two circular needles or one long circular needle (magic loop). If you've never knitted socks before and want to give it a go, this is the class for you.

Skill level: suitable for an advanced beginner / intermediate knitter. You should be competent in small circumference knitting - either using the 'magic loop' method or dpns before taking this class.

You will need:

  • 8 ply / DK weight smooth light coloured yarn
  • 3.25 mm DPNs, or 2 x 40-60cm 3.25mm cables, or 1 x 80-100cm 3.25mm cable
You're also entitled to a 10% discount on any yarn, notions and book purchases made in store on the day.
Your teacher: Jane Downey
Inspired by her grandmother, who would crochet intricate tablecloths without even referring to a pattern, Jane learned to crochet as a teen and has been crocheting now for over 30 years. Jane is a member of the Knitters' Guild of NSW and has taught crochet both for Guild meetings and at the Guild's camp, as well as at several yarn stores in Sydney. Jane has won prizes for her crochet at both the Sydney Royal Easter Show and the St Ives Show. Jane loves crochet because of the variety of projects it lends itself to, and because it's a lot easier to fudge than knitting (mostly!).
