Knit Sock Workshop

with Donna Druchunas
Knit Sock Workshop
Donna teaches basic sock knitting, but even experienced sock knitters will pick up new tricks, including the Kitchener stitch and figure-8 cast-on.

Designer and author Donna Druchunas walks you through knitting socks from the ground up. From casting on to binding off, Donna details simple steps to make intricate sock patterns easy and enjoyable. Once you've worn handmade socks, your feet won't be satisfied with anything else. Donna introduces you to knitting from the toe up so you can try on the sock as you knit and adjust the height of the cuff. You will discover two techniques for starting a sock, three different heel techniques, and usefuls tips and tricks like the figure-8 cast-on and stretchy bind-off. Learn to read charts and use double-pointed or circular needles to create lace and stranded colorwork in the round.
