Handknitted socks are your cup of tea? Or you just crave to try and knit some but do not know how to begin? Emilie Drouin and Elodie Morand’s book “Tricoter ses chaussettes: toutes les techniques” will soon become your bible!

Whether you are a beginner or a confirmed sock knitter, you will enjoy this book. It indeed contains everything you need to know about this particular discipline (yes, it is a “discipline”, there are even international competition in this field!). How to begin a pair of socks, by the toe or the leg? Which type of heel? With which needles do you knit them? And even some advices on how to take care of them so that you can enjoy your new socks for a long time.

You will also find seven patterns specifically designed to learn something new with each pair. For example, one pattern focuses on cables while the other offers a pretty lacy design. Some are in one colour while others are striped or feature some colourwork. Some are knitted in one piece and others explain how to make a contrasting edge, toe and heel. You will even learn how to knit yoga socks!
