Knitting socks may be all the rage right now, but there are many crocheters out there who would like to make socks for friends and family using a hook instead of knitting needles. For those folks, this book is just the ticket. Rehfeldt and Wood have put together a varied collection of 16 patterns for both women and men. Designs range from classic, Oxford-style socks to thong socks for split-toe sandals and wild "wiggly toes" socks, with each toe of the sock crocheted in a different color. This book is for intermediate crocheters who already have the single crochet and other basics nailed down. Ample instructional materials make this a book that sock crocheters will refer to again and again. Warmly recommended for all public libraries. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
