Quick Overview

Socks are one of the most popular projects among experienced knitters, yet they can mystify beginning knitters. Socks require techniques not typically used in simple projects such as scarves and hats, but these techniques are as easy to learn as the basic knit and purl stitches. In fact, you can knit your very own socks, and veteran sock knitter Ann Budd shows you how. Each step - from casting on stitches for the leg to working the misunderstood Kitchener stitch at the toe - is broken down into its basic elements and illustrated with clear photographs and drawings. Along the way you will learn the fundamentals of sock knitting, a vareity of ways to achieve similar results, and a host of time-proven tips that ensure success. Included are basic instructions for knitting socks at five different sizes and for five different gauges. Whether you want to knit a pair of delicate dress socks for your ten year old niece, a pair of sturdy boot socks for your older brother, or a pair of bulky slipper socks for yourself, we've got your feet covered. So get started knitting socks - soon you will have made your first sock...then its mate. Then, before you know it, you will be your own sock-knitting machine.
