Christmas Stocking Workshop - Saturday
GBP £ 40.00
7 available
Join Becci and learn to knit an afterthought heel while making a Christmas stocking. Becci will provide you with a knitted tube and will guide you through the steps to add a heel and toe. Personalisation and embroidery is optional and not covered in the workshop.

 

This workshop is suitable for knitters with some experience. Ideally, you can already knit in the round and know how to work basic decreases.
Yarn and instructions included. You need to bring a few other bits, please see list below.
Becci will show you how to cut into your knitted tube and work an afterthought heel. We’ll also cover the grafting technique for finishing the heel and toe.

 

We will be working with hand-dyed Bluefaced Leicester wool yarn. You will receive a knitted tube and enough contrast colour yarn to complete the stocking.

 

What to bring:
  • Circular sock needle. The cable length is not important, the needle size can be anything from 2mm – 2.75mm. You can also purchase needles on the day from the RiverKnits shop.
  • Small scissors
  • Tapestry needle (for sewing in ends)
