The "how to" book on socks

Jan 16, 2017

Absolutely superb book for anyone, from beginner knitter too, wanting to learn how to knit socks. Step by step directions with pictures for easy understanding. Use this book to come up with your own personal "recipe" for simple stockinette socks and then branch out with cables, lacework, too many patterns to choose from. Excellent resource any sock knitter will continue to reference over and over again.

A great book for the first-time sock knitter, or even those more experienced. Detailed instructions, and hints that make things easier and/or give a better result.
