Publishers Description
The editors at Vogue® Knitting, the most trusted name in the craft, have done it again, creating the most comprehensive guide available to sock knitters! No other book has both information for designing your own socks and such fabulous, never-before-published designer patterns. It includes background on the social and historical development of sock knitting (complete with historical photos), techniques (top-down, bottom-up, many different heel and toe styles), stitch patterns, and socks from a wide variety of ethnic traditions. Since sock knitting requires only the most basic skills, like casting on, knitting in the round, decreasing, working short rows, picking up stitches, binding off and seamless joining, it's a great place for beginners to start.

Reviews - What do customers think about Vogue Knitting The Ultimate Sock Book: History*Technique*Design (Vogue Knitting)?

In Vogue  Jul 25, 2008
I was very impressed with the patterns and instructions in this book. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for more variety of sock patterns.
Vogue Knitting The Ultimate Sock Book  Jun 29, 2008
This an outstanding book. It starts with the history of socks/stockings and brings the reader up to today and how they've changed. The photos are wonderful and the writing is easy to understand.

I would recommend this book for anyone who really is interested in sock knitting. The book was not awfully expensive and it covers about anything you might want to know about socks. This will always be current for the who wants a simple sock to a very ornate complicated one.
Great Addition to my Collection  Jun 13, 2008
As a unrepentant sock book collector I found this book to be very well put together and full of fresh new patterns. Another MUST HAVE for any sock knitter! It's got something for everyone from beginner to expert.
The only one you'll need.  May 24, 2008
This book is self explanatory and additionally has a great section that speaks about the anatomy of a sock. It gives you detailed history of sock making and the biggest names in the sock industry! Impressive! Not only are the sock patterns attractive they are designed and charted out by some of the best designers. You definitely won't be displeased if you add this one to your knitting library!
Great basics and great patterns  Apr 20, 2008
I purchased the book, "Vogue Knitting-The Ultimate Sock Book" because sock knitting was something that I only tried one time previously and wanted to know more about it. I was very pleased with the book because it touches on many aspects of sock knitting from history to basic technique to patterns. The sock patterns are also very creative and are designed by many well known names in the knitting industry, which is typical of Vogue Knitting. A word of caution, however, for those of you who are interested in sock knitting techniques like working with two circular needles. Although there are patterns that utilize various techniques, the authors seem to assume that you already know these techniques as they are not explained in depth in the basic instructions. This is fine with me personally, because I prefer to knit socks the traditional way with 5 double pointed needles. I feel that this book was worth the cost and the time spent reading it.
