Overview

The most trusted name in craft, Vogue® Knitting, presents the ultimate sock pattern book, a comprehensive guide for knitters of accessories. The Ultimate Sock Book provides information on designing your own socks as well as fabulous, never-before-published patterns. It includes background on the social and historical development of sock knitting (complete with historical photos), techniques (top-down, bottom-up, many different heel and toe styles), stitch patterns, and socks from a wide variety of ethnic traditions.

Projects include the Leaf Lace Socks by Susan Lawrence, the Diamond Lace Socks by Joan McGowan-Michael and the Nordic Star Socks by Jan Malone. Since sock knitting requires only the most basic skills, like casting on, knitting in the round, decreasing, working short rows, picking up stitches, binding off and seamless joining, it’s a great place for beginners to start and for advanced knitters to use as a jumping off point.
