Review quote

Summer 2007 Knitwear designer Charlene Schurch has welcomed many a sock knitter into the fold with her masterful little Sensational Knitted Socks. In few that 100 pages, she shows how to knit socks on four or five double-pointed needles or two circular needles, from the top down and the toe up. The pattern section is organized by the type of stitch pattern: four-stitch ribbing patterns; five-, six-, eight-, and twelve-stitch pattern repeats; cabled patterns; chevron patterns (for self-striping yarns); Fair Isle patterns; four-stitch reticulated patterns; and mosaic patterns. She begins each section with a basic sock structure then lets you choose the specific stitch pattern (from an illustrated list). In all, I counted sixty-eight possible sock patterns, not to mention many techniques, extensive sizing charts, and tips on measuring, adjusting, and customizing. Interweave Knits Jan 07 ...laid out well and gives the option for four or five dpns as well as two circulars. It also gives a lots of pattern options. The downside of this book is that there are a lot of corrections. Yarn Market Newsshow more
