Description
Learn to knit socks with confidence--and achieve beautiful results.
Socks are at the top of every knitter's list of favorite projects: Quick to make, highly portable, and usually only requiring a ball of yarn or two, it's easy to see why they love them. And The Sock Knitter's Workshop is the essential companion for beginning and advanced knitters alike.
Expert sock knitters Ewa Jostes and Stephanie van der Linden share their sage wisdom on the essentials of sock knitting, beginning with an overview of materials and tools and the basics of the sock-knitting process. Knitters can mix and match from among many different methods of casting-on and knitting cuffs, heels, and toes to create their own unique designs that fit just right. With extensive step-by-step instructions and hundreds of illustrations plus fifteen patterns, this book provides sock knitters with inspiration and advice for all their projects.
