Drawing inspiration from traditional Scandinavian-style colorwork, the Festive Mistletoe Socks feature charming motifs of holly leaves, mistletoe, and snow. The stranded colorwork uses only two shades per round with short floats, making this project accessible to beginners while offering a thoroughly enjoyable experience for more advanced knitters. Once you complete the cuff and colorwork sections, the rest of the knitting shifts into a smooth and relaxing stockinette stitch. Using three seasonal shades of The Fibre Co.’s Amble, these socks will not only keep your toes cozy but also infuse every stitch with the festive spirit.
Join us for this class and let's make these festive socks together! If you've never made socks before, this simple top-down pattern is a great introduction. If you have never done colorwork before, these socks are a great way to try it out for the first time.
Both the yarn and pattern are included in the class registration fee. Additional supplies you'll need are needles, some stitch markers, stitch holders or waste yarn, and a darning needle. Socks can be done using several types of needles. You can choose to use double-pointed needles or Addi Flexi-Flips. A small circular needle can also be an option, but you would still need to use one of other methods to finish off the toe.
This class has homework! In order to guarantee that we are able to tackle both the colorwork and heel construction in this two-part class, students must show up to the first session with the ribbing of their first sock complete. We are available in the shop any time during open hours to help you decide which method you'd like to work in and help you get started. We're always here to help and we look forward to it! Please use the link above to register and let's get the process started.
**It is recommended that students are comfortable with knitting and purling, as well as basic increases and decreases. Prior experience with double points will be helpful but isn't required.
