ARNE & CARLOS | Master Class in Sock Knitting – The Easiest Sock in the World
Oct 13, 2019
9:00am - 4:30pm
Event date

Cost: $250; Pre-Registration Required

This day-long class is the only instruction you'll need for a lifetime of beautifully crafted, well-fitting socks from Scandinavian design superstars ARNE & CARLOS. They'll teach students the easiest sock in the world, focusing a lot of attention on the heel. You'll learn tips and tricks to take your sock knitting to the next level, so that you'll never again falter when turning that heel. As long as you know how to knit and purl in the round, and know the basic structure of sock knitting, this class is made for you!

Skill Level: Novice-Advanced

What to Bring: 1 set of 5 DPNs size 3 mm (U.S. size 3, U.K. size 11) for ribbing; 1 set of 5 DPNs size 3.5 mm (U.S. size 4, U.K. size 8) for stockinette; REGIA Design Line by ARNE & CARLOS 6-PLY; 1 ball (150gr) in any color option.

Other Information: Please note that the REGIA Design Line is available in both 4-ply and 6-ply. For this class, participants must use the thickest yarn option, which is the 6-ply. Also note that REGIA Pairfect is not suitable for this class, as we will be knitting the sock from the toe-up. Choosing the right yarn and tools for any project is an essential! For those participants with little or no experience knitting with double-pointed needles, we strongly recommend bringing wooden or bamboo needles or Prym’s ergonomic needles. Please do not bring metal or carbon needles if you have never used dpns before. In order to make sure that all students knit an entire sock from beginning to end, in 6 hours, we will be working with a pattern for a mini-sock. There is enough yarn in the ball of REGIA 6-ply (150gr) to knit both the mini-sock and a pair of adult socks, so those participants who finish their mini-sock with plenty of time to go, will be able to start on their adult sock in class.
