Foolproof techniques, developed and perfected by designer Donna Druchunas, are the key to handknit socks that fit well and look great. Take precise measurements -- good fit depends on ankle and foot circumference -- adjust for stretchiness, choose the correct needles, and have fun with sock yarns! These are the elements that add up to socks you'll love to wear yourself or give as gifts. With chapters on cuff-down and toe-up methods and information on heel and toe variations, this is the handy little resource every avid sock knitter will love.
