  • 12 patterns ranging from the traditional to the -fashion forward, for women and men.
  • Sizing advice and construction tips for socks that fit like a glove.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 27 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am an experienced knitter but have never tried socks before. All change...I gave four pairs as gifts
this Christmas. This book has a lovely feel, and I now understand the ways socks need to be worked to get a perfect fit. I would recommend it to expert sock knitters and beginners alike.
