The Big Book of Socks: The Ultimate Beyond-The-Basics Guide to Knitting Socks 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

Almost a must-have book. Patterns run from basic to complex. Each pattern gives a specific brand of yarn in addition to generic yarn weights. I liked the fact that many of the brand yarns used were in a lower price range. Sock patterns are given in a wide range of sizes with clear instructions and beautiful photographs. One only needs time to knit them all!

I have used this book for about 3 pairs of socks, so far. The instructions are easy to follow and there are a lot of fun patterns to try.

For anyone who loves to knit socks, this is a great book. It has a wonderful variety of patterns. I have found the patterns very easy to follow. It was recommended to me by a friend, and I am very satisfied. I have recommended to others as well.
