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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Morgan-Oakes's classes on knitting two socks at once are extremely popular at knitting events, and her second book (after 2-at-a-Time Socks) collects her wisdom on knitting two toe-up socks at once. Her step-by-step instructions fully illustrate the process of knitting a sample pair of socks using the two-at-a-time technique; she then provides a collection of easy-to-follow if uninspiring patterns. As a technique book, this can't be beat. Along with the first book in the series, this is an excellent addition.
