Do you consider sock patterns untouchable? Do you shudder at the thought of double pointed needles? Does the thought of picking up gusset stiches strike fear into your heart?
No longer! Kate Atherley is here to help you overcome and lose your fear of knitting socks. That’s right; anyone who’s willing to try can learn how to be successful at knitting socks.
This isn’t your typical online course though; this is the experience of an in-person class without the costs of attending an event. In Kate’s course, Knitting Socks for Beginners, she will be there each day for the entire month to answer your questions and help you troubleshoot as you knit your first two pairs of socks. Did you catch that? You’ll not only learn how to knit socks, but will have two pairs in just four weeks.
It gets better. Kate has broken down the often complicated nature of knitting socks into five manageable lessons, available for attendees to easily access and view. This means you won’t bite off more than you can chew, and easy online access means you learn at your pace, at your convenience.
The first pair of knitted socks will help you learn the process step-by-step, from casting on and gussets to closing the toe and everything in-between. These thick and quick baby socks will help you to get used to knitting socks on double pointed needles and let you practice techniques on a small scale. After a little bit of practice Kate will then walk you through knitting your first pair of adult socks from the top down.
But Kate’s guidance won’t end there. She covers patterns, sizes, yarn types, and where to go next so you’ll never go wandering around yarn shops wondering which pattern to choose or what kind of yarn will be suitable. You won’t find this level of flexibility, support, and knowledge anywhere else. By the end of this 4-week online course you will be ready to jump right in and knit your next pair on your own!
