Everything you need to know to get started is right here in one knitting class -- the materials needed, construction of a sock and the three most popular technique options for knitting socks. Plus, you'll get a unisex Stockinette stitch sock pattern with a heel flap and gusset shaping. The sock pattern has eight sizes so you can knit a pair for the entire family.

I thought the class was very helpful. Very easy to follow and clear on each step of the process for socks on DPNs. I hope she does a class on circular needles start to finish in the future,

I found her style of teaching very frustrating. Each time she moved on to another step she didn't hold up her work to show where she just completed. She was too quick to continue knitting and not clearly review before moving forward. I had to keep rewinding with hope to catch a glimpse of where exactly she was, and kept hoping for a review before the next step. I watched more of her basic knitting than explaining. I had to continually rip my work especially when she was creating the gusset and doing the decreasing. I was hoping to find another instructor that offered sock knitting so I could switch but she seemed to be the only instructor.

Very good class. I enjoyed the class because the instructor was very clear and thorough while explaining each section of how to knit the sock and did not rush through her instructions. Because of this she took out some concerns I had about knitting socks, especially the heel flap and gusset, which she covered effortlessly. Great work there!

I rated this class with 4 stars because of the three methods discussed on how to knit socks, DPNs, 2-Circulars and Magic Loop, only one (DPNs) was used. I was looking forward to learn how to knit socks with the 2-Circulars and/or Magic Loop methods because I already know how to knit with DPNs. Slightly disappointed that these two methods were not demonstrated in the class.

But, still a very good class and was worth watching and learning.
