Book Description

May 7 2010

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book Nov. 22 2010
By Malinda
Format:Hardcover-spiral
This book gives very detailed instructions on a great sock knitting technique. I won't do socks any other way now that I've done them 2-at-a-time. The author included very helpful photos and each pattern is written with step-by-step instructions.

This is an excellent reference and teaching book.
I was able to follow the photos and written instructions without hesitation.
I would most certainly recommend this book to anyone wishing to knit two socks at one time on one circular needle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just get it already!! Dec 28 2011
By curfewz
Format:Hardcover-spiral
This book is ridiculously good. I've never knit socks before (just throws and scarves) and this book made sock knitting incredibly fun and easy!! Seriously, if you know how to do basic knitting (knit, purl) and you want to learn how to make socks, this is the ONLY book I would recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good all around book May 23 2013
By Sarah
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
I have been knitting socks for years and have just recently starting knitting magic loop.
I love it and to be able to knit a pair of socks at a time is a great thing for me. This book has a lot of different pattern styles, I noticed there was more here for a fancier sock knitter then for basic even though there is a couple basic socks. I love trying new designs so I really enjoyed this book. Lots of pics to help with the explanations of how to do things. I would suggest that you know a little about knitting and have knit socks ( even on dpn) before you try this book. I think it is more for a beginner and up then a novice. I also suggest to try a stretchy bind off, the ones in the book I tried weren't stretchy enough for me I like mine to be super stretchy, but that's just me. All in all I really enjoy this book and if you stick with it past the first couple cast on rows I think you'll enjoy it also. Happy Knitting :)

4.0 out of 5 stars A Challenge June 9 2014
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
A real plus - Socks are knitted evenly and can be tried on as you go! As a recent knitter and my first sock attempt it is a challenge. Each circuit takes me 18 minutes but I am almost halfway there and they're looking good.

While the author knows her stuff, I found out afterward that these techniques were available for free, with video, online.
