Turkish Bed Socks

image79

Instructor: Jenna Hycner

Skill Level: Intermediate

Not your typical sock to make or to wear, but perfect as either socks or slippers. I love how they work with clogs, such as Danskos. These will make great gifts - even if you are the one to receive them! The instructor has made a couple of modifications to the pattern to make them more comfortable to wear and easier to knit.

Skill Level:Very advanced beginner/ Intermediate

Brioche isn't just bread (but both are good!). Brioche is a fabulous knitting technique and one you will be happy to learn. It is a great way to play with color and get a super squishy and comforting knitted item - as an added bonus - it is reversible! Brioche is also called the Tuck stitch. This class is a great introduction to two-color Brioche.

A registered student may cancel a class 10 days prior to the first class and receive a full refund. If you must cancel less than 10 days prior, you will receive a refund if your slot is taken by a waitlisted registrant. Every effort will be made to assist anyone in this situation to receive a refund.
