Knitters love to make socks. Socks are practical and pretty, cozy and colorful. Sock projects are easily carried in a knitting bag, and the patterns are complex enough to be interesting but small enough to be quickly finished. Plus, socks are always fun to wear and great to give as gifts.

Now Knit Socks!, the little die-cut hardcover that sold more than 65,000 copies, is available in a paperback edition that includes two all-new sock patterns. But that’s not all. Sock knitters will find much more in this revision to feed their sock addictions, such as helpful new advice on choosing sock yarns  what feels the best, what holds its shape, what really lasts.

And what is a knitter to do if a pattern looks interesting, but she wants to substitute a lighter yarn for the chunky, warm wool specified? A new chart provides alternative yarn weights and the corresponding number of stitches needed for each of the patterns and sizes. Knitters might also want to experiment with two circular needles. Or four double points. There’s advice here for adapting any pattern to any type of needle.

With all the variations and possibilities, Knit Socks! goes far beyond its 17 patterns. Creative knitters will find an endless array of exciting options for keeping feet comfortable, warm, and beautiful.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gute Ideen 15. Mai 2011
Von Salem
Ich stricke schon seit vielen Jahren, auch diverse Socken. Ganz neu war die Idee, die Socken mit einer Rundstricknadel der Länge 80 zu stricken. Statt 4 Mal muss in einer Reihe nur noch 2 Mal umgegriffen werden. Sehr angenehm. Es git auch einige Muster, die ich vorher noch nicht kannte.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good All-in-One Reference for New Sock Knitters 4. August 2010
Von Lynne E. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you have never knitted socks before, this knitting-bag-sized book (6"x 9") will tell you everything you need to know about knitting classic cuff-down socks. Instructions are included for three popular sock-knitting methods: (1) using double-pointed needles, (2) using two circular needles, and (3) using one long circular needle and the "Magic Loop" approach.

The book has 17 different sock patterns (some with extra variations), most of which call for slip-stitch heel flaps and simple stitch combinations. Nearly all of the patterns appeared previously in McCarthy's sock-shaped book, Knit Socks!. The patterns are presented in tables, and every step for each sock part (cuff, leg, heel flap, heel turn, gusset, foot, toe) is written out in detail. A great feature is that the tables give the stitch counts whenever the counts change (because of increasing or decreasing), including row-by-row counts when turning the heel. This step-by-step approach results at times in rather wordy instructions.

All of the patterns can be knitted by a novice sock knitter. "Winter Garden", the flowered cover design, is a more advanced, charted design that introduces the Fair Isle (stranded color knitting) technique. "Yoga Moves" includes an alphabet chart that can be used to personalize gift socks or add any short message around sock legs. "Off the Cuff" has an interesting fold-down cuff that uses the natural roll of stockinette stitch for an unusual cuff treatment. "Lacy Days" incorporates simple lace patterns; "Diamonds and Cables" and "Best Foot Forward" offer attractive cabled socks; and "You've Got Rhythm" presents three versions of textured-pattern socks.

There are patterns for many different weights of yarn, and at least one pattern ("Fireside Stripes") that is designed to show off handpainted yarn. Also included is a pattern with a stockinette heel ("Straight-Laced") and one with an "eye of peacock" heel ("Fireside Stripes").

If the competition among sock-knitting books weren't so fierce right now, this would be a 4- or 5-star book. However, because the patterns are so simple, the book is primarily of interest to new sock knitters. Therefore, the book rates only an "average" 3 stars.

Purchased ebook on Kindle Fire. Text is great, but all charts are not formatted for larger screen and cannot be read...nor can they be made larger. Stick to the paperback version.

I have the original sock-shaped book and I love it. I thought it would be great to have it on my Kindle - Oops! Not so!!! The tables that I so enjoy using are impossible to read on the Kindle. The pattern instructions are divided by part of sock being knitted and each part has its own table, which, in my opinion, makes this PRINT book really easy to use. If you really like the socks on the cover because of the pattern and are disappointed that there is only the one pair made that way, you can use a book of patterns and find something that will fit into the charts for the flowered socks. Get some graph paper and draw the number of stitches and rows on it, then put in the pattern you've chosen from another source - colored pencils or crayons make your own chart easy to use. I use the Intarsia and Fair Isle sections of The Knitting Stitch Bible by Maria Parry-Jones to do this sort of thing on socks and doll clothes. The book also has the following sections: Knit & Purl, Rib, Cable, Bobble, Lace, Sequins & beads. With just a little experience you can utilize a book like this to make most any pattern an original by you. I would advise any beginner knitters reading this to refuse to be put off by naysayers. If you truly want to make a pair of socks for someone, even yourself, you will be able to do it. I can say this because I learned to knit when I was 16 by making a pair of Argyle socks for my steady boyfriend. If you're being told to make a dozen scarves or potholders first, just ignore that advice and make what you really and truly want to make. You can do it!!!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not as great as the cover suggests 26. November 2010
Von fiber farmer - Veröffentlicht auf
I own a lot of sock knitting books and have loved some of the newer books on the market, so I looked through this book at a local Borders. I sat down with it for nearly an hour, reviewing the patterns and the instructions. I must say, the cover photo is charming and I was looking forward to more imaginative designs inside. To my disappointment, most of the patterns are standard fare. I saw nothing that wasn't already covered in other sock knitting books.

Now that's not to say the patterns aren't good. Indeed, the pattern instructions are well written and they produce some very nice looking socks, if the photos are an accurate guide. The price is a good price, too, if you buy it from Amazon. I was just disappointed that the publisher chose the single picture that was intriguing in the entire book in order to sell a pretty standard book on sock knitting. It's not a bad little book, it's just not as terrific as the cover photo promised, at least not for me. I guess I feel that the cover is misleading and attracts more experienced knitters without producing the challenge it implies.

Beginners? Yes, you will enjoy this book, but probably won't tackle the pattern for the cover photo until you've worked your way through some of the others.
