Storey. Mar. 2022. 152p. ISBN 9781635864076. $16.95. CRAFTS
Knitting two socks at once is not a new idea, but the innovative approach presented in this book improves on previous methods. The simplicity allows for flexibility and creativity in patterns, and for experienced knitters will offer a wide array of options. Talley is the host of a popular knitting podcast and has a vibrant social media presence, and this energy comes through in this book, with plenty of details about her experiences with knitting. The book is designed for ultimate flexibility rather than following patterns. This may be a challenge for beginners but makes this a widely useful book. The structure starts with a description of the general technique, which is to knit cuff to toe and toe to cuff, with lifelines placed for separating the socks and completing the heels. This is accompanied by charts for determining the pattern based on gauge and size, and ideas for patterns, especially for children’s socks.
VERDICT Perfect for beginning knitters who find a traditional sock too intimidating or more experienced knitters who want to experiment with a new technique.
