Overview

Knitwear designer Melissa Morgan-Oakes revolutionized the world of sock-making with 2-at-a-Time Socks. Her ingenious approach showed delighted knitters how to simultaneously create two socks on a single circular needle. With that book, yarn enthusiasts said goodbye forever to second sock syndrome, the frustration of completing one beautiful hand-knit sock, only to remember that another must be made. Now, Morgan-Oakes turns the approach on its head or rather, its toe with Toe-Up 2-at-a-Time Socks.

Knitters adore toe-up socks for both novelty and practicality. Knitters can try on the sock as they work, they never run out of yarn before the foot is complete, and they avoid needing the dreaded kitchener stitch to finish off the toe. Many swear that toe-up socks just plain feel more comfortable, too.

Morgan-Oakes combines the pleasures of toe-up knitting with the convenience of her 2-at-a-time approach in 15 original designs for men, women, children, and babies. From the delicate and graceful ballerina sock to the kaleidoscopic, nubby peppercorn pattern, there is a style here for every pair of feet. For each pattern, Morgan-Oakes provides row-by-row instructions, charts for both large and small feet, and captivating, four-color photographs of the finished product. Readers aren’t limited to these patterns, however. Once mastered, the technique can be applied to any sock pattern.

With Toe-Up 2-at-a-Time Socks as their guide, knitters will rock the toe-up sock world, two-at-a-time, every time.

    more from this reviewer

    Nook users, be warned

    I downloaded this book and promptly started to knit the sample pair of socks. I immediately ran into difficulties and as a fairly new knitter, I blamed myself. Frustrated, I decided to browse the hard cover edition in my local B&N to see if I could understand it better. TURNS OUT THAT THE BOOK HAS 170+ PAGES, NOT THE 52 WHICH SHOWED UP ON MY NOOK. To make a long story short, I ended up buying the hard cover edition and I am now finishing my second PAIR of socks. The author's method works beautifully, even for this novice knitter. Because the book is wonderful and the Nook edition not so much, I gave the book an overall rating of 4 stars; (the actual book gets a solid 5 stars). Forget about wasting the $9.99 on the Nook edition, spring for the $17 hard cover and ENJOY!

    awesome book

    I have both of the sock books by Melissa and love her way of presenting the information.

    I have a doctorate degree, but reading patterns, let's just say, is not my forte. But with her tutelage I can get the pattern done and it looks great.

    Thanks Melissa,
    Dr. Tina

    Melissa's first book taught me how to knit socks and I was hooked.  Now, the toe-up method is even more efficient, and I am thoroughly enjoying knitting socks.  Sooooo glad my husband bought me this book!

    One star because the Nook version is only 57 pages, but references all 100+ pages. I called customer service and got a refund. I'll get the hardcopy.

    Recommend for experienced knitters

    I enjoy the patterns and the two at a time concept. Patterns are great and the stitch graphs are easy to follow. Don't particularly like/enjoy the cast on method - doesn't come out as smooth as I would want so I have adapted one of my own. Once you get the method down, very easy to transfer to other projects - mittens, warmers, etc. Ms. Melissa is a genius.

    The end of 'second sock' syndrome!

    Toe up allows for a lot more options and doing two at the same time makes keeping sock size consistent a lot easier. Not to mention when you are done, you're done- not just moving on to the second sock.
