The Winwick Mum Sockalong is designed for beginners who've never knitted socks before but have always want to have a go. From choosing yarn and needles to creating tension squares to determine your perfect fit, we're going to work through the whole process of knitting a top (or cuff) down, heel flap sock together - with lots of pictures! If you're already an experienced knitter and fancy joining in, it'll be lovely to have you along - there are no restrictions or entry requirements here other than being able to knit and purl. The rest of it I'll show you as we go along.
You can join in with the Sockalong at any time. There's no rush and no time limit. If you've never knitted socks before, follow the tutorials in order by clicking the titles below so that you have everything that you need to hand before you're ready to cast on. Don't forget that you can ask questions whenever you need to, either through the blog or through social media - the links are below.
These online tutorials will always be free and will always be here for anyone to use, although if you'd prefer the tutorials in paperback or Kindle format you can buy them here.
Good luck, you're going to love your new hand-knitted socks!
