Sign up for a knitting class at Stix Knit Boot Socks

Date: Tuesday, April 10 & 17
Time: 6:00 - 8:00 pm

Some believe that once you have knit a pair of socks, you can knit just about anything. Make your first pair of socks out of worsted weight yarn so you can see what you are doing and because it knits up faster. You knit in the round on double points until you “turn the heel” and pick up for the gusset. Knit the length of the foot and kitchener stitch the toe closed. And do it all again to avoid “second sock syndrome.”

We are recommending either Brooklyn Tweed Shelter for that rustic look or Malabrigo Rios for a machine-washable sock. Pattern will be available at Stix.

We were quite taken with this design when it first appeared in 2012’s Vogue Knitting – Crochet! It has just stuck with us. This scarf is made in motifs that you join as you go. We used Ito yarns Sensai (mohair and silk) in 8 colors to achieve the bright colors of spring. Previous students have made this scarf out of more subtle monochromatic blues and grays, or make yours out of your favorite pinks and corals. it is stunning in whatever color scheme you choose.

Kathy Merrick’s pattern is available on Ravelry.
