Custom Socks

Whether you knit them toe-up or topdown, getting just the right fit on hand knit socks can be a major challenge. In Custom Socks, Kate Atherley sets out to teach knitters of all levels the skills and tools they need to understand sock fit, and to knit a pair of socks that fit properly. She calls on her years of experience as Knitty's Managing Technical Editor, where she has edited hundreds of sock patterns, to share this information in a way that is easy to understand with patterns that inspire. Custom Socks opens with details on sock sizing. You'd be surprised how many people don't need a custom size, but rather need to learn how to choose the right size for them. Kate teaches knitters how to read and understand the sizes given in sock patterns, how to choose the right size, and what to do if an existing pattern doesn't have good sizing details. Then, tells you just how to measure your foot, no rounding allowed! Custom Socks contains a number of useful tables on standard sizing dimensions (length and circumference) related to children, women, and men's socks. UK and European sizes are given as well for our international readers. Following these detailed charts is valuable information about yarn choices and what works best for sock knitting. Additional details on knitting with 4 or 5 double pointed needles, magic loop, or two circular needles and how to arrange the stitches for the various methods is also covered. Along the way, Kate offers tips and tricks for dealing with common problem areas: stretchy cast ons and bind offs, picking up gusset stitches, neatly hiding wraps, grafting the toe how to do it well, and how to avoid it entirely.
