Details

     Argyle socks (and sweaters) have those classic diamond designs that never go out of style, with contemporary variations and color combinations giving the traditional design new appeal.  Learn the classic argyle style sock—knit back and forth with intarsia knitting for the leg, then joined and knit in the round for the foot of the sock.   Intarsia knitting is knitting with multiple colors of yarn hanging at different points across the row, picked up and knit, picked up and knit, repeatedly, following a stitch chart.  With argyle, one forms colored diamonds against a main color background using the intarsia technique.  Instruction will cover how to choose color combinations, intarsia knitting technique, how to read the chart, and how to seam invisibly. This class will be taught by the guest instructor Linnie Blattner!

Materials: The class will discuss best the yarn and color choices for argyle socks. Yarn and bobbins will be available to purchase on the first class date. You will also need US size 5 double pointed knitting needles, as well as stitch markers, a tapestry needle, and a tape measure. 

Prerequisite Skill Level:  Participants must already have experience knitting socks and must understand sock construction.  Class instruction is focussed on intarsia argyle technique for the leg of the sock, along with invisible seaming.  Written instructions will be provided for finishing the foot part of the socks, and it is assumed that class members can easily follow them without assistance.
