The Little Box of Socks Cards – March 11, 2008
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Each sock pattern has it's own glossy folded card and has all the instructions you would need to knit the sock (cuff, heel flap, gussets, toe, etc.). And, these cards seem pretty sturdy. They would definitely hold up much better than all the folded up patterns that I end up throwing in the bottom of my knitting bag!
There were lots of socks that I think I would enjoy knitting in this book. My faves include Lace Rib Socks, Slip Stitch Cable Socks, Faceted Rib Socks (which seems to be the popular one on Ravelry) and the Small Wings Socks.
This book is for a knitter who has some experience knitting socks. Like I said, there is one insert for special techniques, but if you have never knit socks before, I would recommend trying a different pattern or book (and then moving on to this one). I think a lot of these patterns are easy and not too complicated, which is perfect for someone who wants more experience with sock knitting but isn't quite ready to knit Twisted Flower or something. --Jennifer Hansen, knittinglikecrazy.blogspot.com
