52 Weeks of Socks
52 Weeks of Socks is a magnificent collaborative project between Laine Magazine and 46 designers from around the world (including Caitlin Hunter, Andrea Mowry, and Joji Locatelli, to name just a few) to create a compendium of the very best of sock knitting.
The book contains 52 knitting patterns for socks and slippers. The patterns feature a range of different techniques and textures, such as lace, cables, tuck stitches, colourwork, duplicate stitching and felting. All patterns come in 2 sizes. The book is suitable for both beginners and advanced sock knitters alike, as the difficulty level of patterns varies greatly. And as always in knitting (and in everything in life, really): you learn as you go.
With 256 pages and a weight of 1100 g (2.5 lb) this is a hardcover book with a capital B. The woven cover, uncoated paper and a ribbon place marker make it feel extra special – it is an item you want to keep on your coffee table, a book that will make even non-sock knitters want to cast on.
Pattern details are available on Ravelry.
