(326) Christmas Stocking
This class is designed for the person that has never knit a sock and still feels a bit intimidated when thinking about knitting socks. Knitting a Christmas Stocking requires the same techniques used to knit a sock. The Stocking uses a worsted weight yarn and only one stocking is made - preventing 'second sock syndrome'. Christmas Stockings can be easily customized too. Participants will learn: Parts of a sock, terms used in sock knitting, way socks are made using short rows and how to Kitchener Stitch.
