Socks – Top Down, Two At One Time

broad spiralboad spiral

During this class, you will learn to knit two socks at one time, from the top down.  You should already be comfortable using the the Magic Loop method for knitting in the round.

I have chosen the Broad Spiral Rib sock pattern by Tracey Ewing because of the construction.  You will learn to knit a cable without a using a cable needle, her process for turning the heel is very decorative as well as the star toe finishing.  It is a free download on Ravelry.

Materials:  Approximately 480 yards of sport weight sock yarn.
Size US #3, 47 inch circular needle, and darning needle.

Cost:          $45.00 – Three session, two hour class.

As with all our classes, you will receive a 10% discount on all materials.  Check our calendar for dates and call The Fibre Studio to reserve your spot.

Wren KAL

While perusing Ravelry, I came across this free Berroco pattern called Wren.   The pattern was published in June, 2008 and used a yarn (Zodiac) long ago discontinued by Berroco; however, it has great lines.

I thought what a cute spring cardigan this would be knit using Berroco Maya.  It could be worn pinned, as shown, or open with the shawl collar.  I am thinking I may update the pattern a bit and add seed stitch instead of ribbing.  (You know I can never knit a pattern without changing it.)
