With seven techniques and 101 patterns, this how-to book provides detailed, clear instructions for knitting and crocheting colourful and artful socks. A how-to primer on sock making is included for beginners, and size tables help you create socks that fit perfectly for all ages.
The 101 projects cover a wide range of skill sets, from the beginner to the advanced knitter. You'll learn, among other things, how to create sock heels in three different styles, knit with circular needles, knit from the toe up, and create felted textiles using your washing machine. Sock styles include cable, stripe, and rainbow patterns, socks with fringe, pompons, and other embellishments, sport socks, slippers, socks with a "lodge" look, and even a dolphin motif.
