Folk Socks: The History & Techniques of Handknitted Footwear, the book that launched the sock knitting craze just got even better with new yarns and content updates.
Folk Socks offers 18 sock patterns from European and British traditions, including boot socks, Birkenstock socks, lacy stockings, kilt hose, cabled and clocked socks, and more. Originally published in 1994,Folk Socks taught knitters across North America the ins and outs of traditional sock knitting through Nancy Bush's careful instruction, charts, and illustrations.
This revised edition still contains the same beloved in-depth history and step-by-step instruction from Nancy that sock knitters have come to and depend on. You can also find detailed instruction on essential sock knitting techniques for heel turns, toe shaping, and top ribbing for knitters of all skill levels. New and updated sections include:
* Up-to-date yarn substitutions for yarns that have been discontinued.
* Additional content from Nancy. She has included the new sock knitting knowledge she has gained in the years since Folk Sock's initial publishing date.
* A brand-new bonus section on Estonian-inspired socks.
A classic reference, now updated, Folk Socks is a must-have for any sock knitter.
