Socks are a quick, portable knitting project, but with numerous ways to create the heels and toes, they can seem complex. This accessible book breaks down the key construction techniques with step-by-step tutorials and examples, to demystify the process for new knitters and inspire more confident knitters with new stitch patterns and finishes. Measuring guides, yarn advice, and design considerations also ensure you can produce socks that are not only well-knitted, but fit well and are comfortable too.
Topics covered include: types of yarn, needles and equipment, including how to use circular and double pointed needles; sock construction techniques for different heels and toes and finally, sizing and measuring with consideration to different sock styles and purposes. There are 13 complete sock patterns to practice the different construction techniques.
