Good sturdy construction and very clear patterns and illustrations. Probably not for a first-time sock knitter. There is a lot of variety in the patterns. Most take their influences from sock-knitting traditions in various parts of Europe. All the yarns used are of American origin, so you have to find your own local substitutes, though as the guage is shown clearly, this should not be a problem.

I bought this book about 4 years ago when I was first interested in sock knitting and have regularly dipped back into it. Aside from the gorgeous patterns, there are many good things about this book

(1) Hardback and spiral bound, means that the books stays neat and tidy and sits flat on the table

(2) I love the layout. With every pattern, you have written instructions, charts and a clear photo.

(3) Nancy Bush uses a wide variety of yarns, some American, some European, so being able to find good substitutions is key. She includes a handy yarn guide in the front of the book with weight, recommended needle sizes, meterage and tensions for many, many brands of yarns.

(4) There are a few simpler patterns but all the patterns have some nuances to keep even the advanced knitter interested.

(5) The patterns are easy to memorise. You might want to glance at the instructions every now and then, but you'll probably find that you don't need to.

(6)New (to me) techniques like the vikkel braid in Spey Valley and the nub stitch in Denmark.

It's really important to check the gauge and the sizes provided to ensure a good fit as many of the designs ran a bit snug. Although it's usually easily rectified with larger needles or an additional repeat, it's still a bit depressing to do all that work and to have something not fit.

Every sock knitter needs to have this book in their library. Even if you don't knit the patterns

Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
The format of this book is great, the designs are great but there is only one size given for each design. So for someone with larger feet - no good at all as all the patterns are for small/average ladies. I will need to spend alot of time working out how to adapt the patterns before the books title would become appropriate to me. The designs are varied but there is not much variation in the construction method used for each sock - i.e. top down with a standard gusset heel. Also I point to note is that the yarns used are not readily available here in the UK -as this is a US published book.
