Contents: Design and Socks Sock Techniques - The basic pattern for a sock knitted from cuff to toe can be adapted in any number of ways for a truly original sock. Stitch Techniques - Master the basic techniques and learn to read charts to create a unique sock. Sock Design - Easily learn to create your own designs. Patterns Glynis - These are the perfect socks for trepid knitters interested in lace, because they are much simpler than they appear! Eunice - These short-cuffed socks have cables, lace, jogs and an interesting pattern to transition to the slipped-stitch heel. Sunshine - Bright and perfectly peachy, these socks are straightforward with simple vertical repeats. Devon - These playful socks have stitches divided asymmetrically for the heel and instep so that one repeat on one side is cut in half. Vilai - The stitch pattern for these socks was inspired by a Japanese book and named after Cookie???s mother. Angee - You will love to knit these crazy colorful pair of socks that feature an interesting textured pattern and a wonderfully funky bright orange. Wanida - The simple and elegant diamond pattern for these socks was tricky to design, but when knitting them it will seem like they just instantly fall into place. Sam - These socks start out daring and adventurous with a bit of traveling cables and texture, but then transition easily to a simple stockinette foot. Bex - These unique socks will keep you interested. The stitch pattern is staggered horizontally, and the top of the foot cuts into some cables that are converted to plain stitches. Cauchy - A famous mathematician Cauchy (koh-shee) known for the inequality principle, inspired these socks with a simple knit/purl combination to form lines that resemble those inequality signs. Rick - Mirrored for contour shaping, these socks evoke racing stripes by combining fun diagonal lines with twisted rib. Milo - Made up of smaller parts of simple knitting, these socks will easily impress with how complicated they look. The cable down the back echoes the larger cables throughout. Lindsay - The perfect comfy textured socks! Combining garter stitch with a stockinette wedge makes the stitch count vary from round to round and the vertical stripe is an interesting visual element. Kristi -Learn to cable without a cable needle will help you knit these quickly! These socks use a large twisted-stitch panel, which is staggered and mirrored within each sock across the pair. Kai-Mei - These socks combine various elements such as a ribbed cuff and a sweeping lace pattern that starts at the gusset stitch pick-up. Shifting the gusset decreases to one side of the lace panel causes it to angle across the top of the foot, demonstrating that the path taken need not be traditional. Abbreviations Glossary Sources
