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.

Vodka Lemonade by Thea Colman

Here is an awesome, light weight cardigan that I think will be perfect as a three-season garment for our climate.  It is top down construction, which I love because I like to try it on as I go.  Several of us at The Fibre Studio are knitting the Vodka Lemonade out of Rowan, Pure Life Revive.  Other great DK weight yarn selections would be:

  • Berroco – Linsey, or Captiva
  • Classic Elite –  Soft Linen, or Cotton Classic
  • Tahki – Firefly
  • Grignasco – Springfield, Mousse, or Champagne
  • Manos – Serena
  • Louet – Euroflax
