This revised edition contains the same in-depth history and the same step-by-step instruction from Nancy Bush that sock knitters have come to love and depend on. Discontinued yarns have been replaced by current yarns, and modifications that Nancy has learned since the book was first published have been added. Also new is a section on Estonian-inspired socks.
Folk Socks offers eighteen sock patterns pulled from European and British traditions, plus a chapter on essential sock-knitting techniques for heel turns, toe shaping, and top ribbing for knitters of all skill levels.

MEDIA REVIEWS

June 2012

Nancy's book was first published back in 1994 and is said to have kicked off the sock knitting phenomenon. This updated edition is packed with 18 patterns for socks, but these aren't just old socks! They're socks with heritage, showcasing a host of Northern European traditions. There are loads of variation including pure cream Latvian socks worked in lace, Estonian socks with twisted travelling stitch braid detail and patterned tops, and some fabulous red and white Finnish socks that even Father Christmas would be proud of!
