    What you'll learn

    Come on down to Hackney and 'sock' up some Fabrications love in this sock knitting workshop. No need to get cold feet over this sock class, you're guaranteed to have a ball.

    In this class

    Let Jill Bulgan guide you through the process of knitting socks from top to toe! This class is suitable for both beginners fairly new to knitting or making 3d objects and intermediate knitters. If you know how to cast on, knit & purl and cast off you'll be fine in this class. The focus is knitting socks with two needles and creating ribbing for elasticity.

    You will receive enough instruction to complete your socks at home or at Fabrications fortnightly Thursday evening 'Craft Club'

    Now you can

    • create ribbing around the ankle
    • understand how to 'turn the heel' by picking up stitches
    • shaping for your own toes for extra comfy socks as well as exploring some wonderful and crazy patterns
    • follow a simple sock pattern from start to finish


    Please bring 100g of DK wool and 4mm knitting needles or you can purchase in Fabrications shop.

    Pavol Durdik did what no man or woman has ever done before. In Puchov, Slovakia on 14 July 2015, Pavol set a world record of putting 48 pairs of socks on. In 60 seconds. An unbelievable 'feet', which has lead to some spectators calling Pavol a modern day 'Sockrates'!

    Fabrications opened in June 2000 in a refurbished derelict shop on Broadway Market in Hackney, East London.
