Format: Hardcover
I bought this book because I really wanted to learn how to knit socks, and yet some other books that I ordered all seemed to assume I knew more than I did. This book starts off right at the beginning, so it was very helpful.

The text and pictures are very clear, and they really do lead you through step-by-step. There are a couple of things that I haven't got the hang of yet (like stopping the "ladder" gap between double-pointed needles). The author's only suggestion is to use a circular needle, but if they don't make needles small enough, then what do you do?

Anyway, aside from a few small things, I am very, very happy with this book. With it I successfully knit my first pair of socks, and I intend to knit many more :)

I was knitting socks before I bought this book, but I did not understand how I did. I would just blindly follow the pattern not knowing what was next.
This book breaks down each section of the sock, as well as the wools you use. I now know exactly how and why I am knitting. I do not have to rely on a pattern I can make my own.
If you have always wanted to try knitting socks then this is the book for you. It is thorough and easy to understand. If you already knit socks and want to know more this is a great book to add to your library.
Over all this is one of the best knitting books I own and I recomend it to anyone interested in knitting socks!

I got this book on a recommendation as I was starting my 'sock knitting adventure'.

Now this is my GO TO book and I suggest it to ANYONE wanting to learn to knit socks.

I'm a beginner at knitting socks, so I can't speak to how it would be for experienced sock knitters, but for anyone else out there that wants to knit socks...GET THIS BOOK!

Good pictures, easy to read and understand instructions. Multiple sizes. Good for learning and even better for reference as you work.

I bought this book for my mother, since she was having trouble figuring out how to knit socks from the other sock books I loaned her. The book contains many very useful explanatory photos, illustrating each step, which is just what she needed. It contains basic sock patterns for a large amount of yarn weights, which was also useful for my mother since she doesn't like working with fingering weight yarn because of her eyesight and arthritis. I've taken a look at it, and it looks like a really good book for beginner sock knitters who are using double pointed needles.

At first glance, this book's simple design might not seem all that impressive, but don't let that fool you. This book teaches you how to make any sock from almost any yarn weight (from 4 stitches per inch chunky weight to 8 stitches per inch fingering weight). The instructions are CLEAR and patterns include multiple sizes. Work your way thru one of the basic patterns, and you'll be empowered to design your own socks from a variety of yarns in any size and leg/instep pattern. Not that creative? There are still 16 more patterns to choose from. LOVE this book.
