Want to warm your loved ones right down to their toes? Hand-knitted socks are the most thoughtful of gifts, and are always welcome! Renowned designer and instructor Edie Eckman offers these 18 styles for the family. Simple or fancy, they range from wee baby booties to roomy socks for men and toeless yoga socks. Techniques include lace, cables, slip stitch, and ribbing. The designs are standard cuff-down, French heel with gusset plus two toe-up designs that use primarily sock yarn along with a few heavier weight yarns. Thorough instructions include all the stitches and techniques you'll need, including Edie's helpful pattern stitch charts. And with the huge array of yarn colors available, your socks are sure to be the right fit for the lucky recipient!
