Knit Soxx for Everyone: 25 Colorful Sock Patterns for the Whole Family

S. & S. Jul. 2021. 192p. ISBN 9780811739573. pap. $24.95. CRAFTS
This is a guide for knitters of all levels interested in learning how to structure and size socks, and a source of 25 fairly similar but still well-written, easy-to-follow patterns. However, with competition from websites like Ravelry and Creative Bug, along with a seemingly infinite number of YouTube tutorials, craft books demands a little more, whether that’s a layer of personal narrative or other elements that make the book feel more engaging rather than a collection of patterns that could be downloaded. There are a few glimpses of that personal content here, especially in the “Sock Party” comic at the end of the book, but overall this is not required reading among the ranks of other more lushly illustrated, innovative books for fiber artists.
VERDICT Although it will be a welcome addition to library shelves, it doesn’t provide readers with more than a straightforward guide to knitting socks and the patterns.
