Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Budd and Merrow's book will appeal to this [sock knitting] fan base and may even convince reluctant knitters to take up the sport." - Library Journal

"I love sock books that have a covered spiral binding so I can lay the book out flat while I am knitting." - All Info About Knitting.com

"The publishers that started the whole sock phenom have put out a greatest sock hits book...presented in a fantastic package." - Knitty.com

"Good patterns. Classic. Timeless." - Cast-on.com

"Tired of trying to remember what issue that sock pattern was in? This collection solves that problem." - The News & Observer

"Those double points will be flying. Each succeeding sock tickles your must-knit list." - Yarn Market News

"Five out of five stars! I really like this new sock book." - Knitting News

"These are patterns sock knitters will be using repeatedly, mixing and matching the techniques as their confidence and ability grows." - Monsters and Critics.com

Knitter's Review
These are beautiful creations. . . I want to knit almost every sock in this book.
The Detroit News
An interesting collection of sock patterns that represent traditions from across the world.
KnitNet online magazine
You'll find some of the best names in sock knitting . . . beautifully designed.
Bangor Daily News
Those who find knitting socks endlessly fascinating will find plenty to keep them occupied.
Knit N' Style
A beautiful book in every way . . . wire binding so it will stay flat, large clear photos, and unique designs.
Library Journal

The quick and practical art of sock knitting is so popular these days that one web-based group devoted to the subject in Yahoo! Groups currently has more than 11,000 members. Budd and Merrow's book will appeal to this fan base and may even convince reluctant knitters to take up the sport. It includes 25 patterns, 19 of which were originally published in Interweave Knits, Spin-Off, and PieceWorkmagazines. Many of the designs are based on ethnic traditions from around the world, and some of the more interesting patterns-e.g., the lacy Meida's socks, the Embossed Leaves, the Flame Wave, the Austrian socks-sport lavish textural designs that appear deceptively complex. In addition to patterns, the book introduces readers to a variety of sock-knitting techniques, including toe-up sock construction and seamless intarsia in the round. This is an excellent choice for all but the smallest knitting collections. Libraries just getting started in collecting sock-knitting books will also want something for beginners, like Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks.

    Fabulous Past-Published Sock Patterns from Interweave

    I had noticed some of these past patterns available for purchase/download on Interweave's website & then happened upon the book at B&N. The patterns were all previously published in earlier magazines, which I didn't have. I liked the idea of having all of those great sock patterns compiled into one book. I can really see myself making each one, which is rare for me in a pattern book. I like that it has the spiral bound hardcover, so the book can lay flat while you are working as well. I highly recommend!

    Wonderful patterns!

    I have made several pairs of socks from these patterns- given them as gifts, & all have been received with a big grin- 'You made this for me?!?' Usually they put them on immediately, too. Sock knitting is so much fun, enough for the advanced knitter, but still do-able for the less experienced knitter! Sock knitting will cement your skills as a knitter!
