Emily's Favourite Sock Experiments

by PomPom Press



Friday January 25th 4-8pm

Emily’s Favourite Socks always look fresh in her signature colours. Learn to pair unexpected combinations with easy modifications and they will become your favourites, too.
During this class, students will knit a mini-sock to cover all necessary elements of sock construction within the time available. We will use a modified version of Emily’s Favourite Socks (a basic, top-down ribbed sock pattern) to achieve our miniature socks, exploring variations for cuff, leg, heel, foot and toe pattern and colour as we work. The class will address simple ways to adjust the fit of your socks, avoiding the need for complicated shaping.

A selection of Favourite Sock samples will be available to illustrate the endless possibilities!Ideal for novice sock knitters or those who would like a refresher, as well as more advanced knitters who want to experiment with Emily’s colourplay techniques. Students should be comfortable working small circumferences in the round, either using double-pointed needles or magic loop. These skills will not be covered during the class.

Class includes:

  • A printed copy of Emily’s Favourite Socks Pattern for each student.
  • An illustrated handout with notes and tips for every sock knitter, from novice toadvanced.
  • A Viola Sock Mini-skein (students will be able to choose from selection provided.
  • A wide selection of Viola sock yarns to experiment with for toes, heels, cuffs and stripesStudents should bring: 2.25 or 2.5mm DPNs or circular needles (depending on preference for working small circumferences in the round).
