Discover the wonderful world of knitting socks. During the Sock Knitting Club you'll be shown how simple and easy sock knitting is, so that you can begin filling that sock drawer with your own handmade socks.
Knitting socks can seem overwhelming at first. With a large variety of techniques used it can feel almost impossible to get started.
Our Online Sock Knitting Club breaks down the process into easy bite-sized steps, so that you can enjoy knitting socks and build your confidence. During the Club, you'll learn to knit socks from the cuff-down using the Magic Loop Method. The sock you'll be knitting will have a heel flap & gusset style heel, and you'll learn to Kitchener stitch the toe for a beautiful finish.
As part of the club, you'll receive our Beginner's Sock Pattern and Guide to Knitting Socks, and be fully supported with video tutorials on the trickier techniques.
Our Club is designed to be as enjoyable as an in-person learning experience, but with the convenience of learning online when and where it suits you.
