Basic Knitted Socks - Top Down (In Person)

Yarn and Needles-  You can choose between fingering/sock wt yarn (as shown in the photo) or DK/sport wt yarn.  If you have never used fingering wt yarn before you might want to start with a heavier wt of yarn.  Also light color yarn is best, especially if this is your first experience using fingering wt yarn.

Sock/fingering wt - 400 yards or more and a set of Double Point Needles size 1 or 1.5 US
Sport or DK wt - 225 yards or more and a set of Double Point Needles size 3 US.
We suggest a light colored yarn for learning.
