Welcome to Kathleen Taylor's latest knitting extravaganza - a sock party in a book! The author of the best-selling Knit One, Felt Too and I Heart Felt is back with everything you ever wanted to know about socks, with 75 patterns to prove it. The Big Book of Socks is chock full of Kathleen Taylor's fun and fabulous designs for knitters of all ages and skill levels. There's something for everyone from stripes to cables to lace to intarsia and Fair Isle. You'll find funky toe-socks, snowflake house socks, booties, Christmas stockings, beaded socks, and many, many more. Taylor's instructions are a breeze to follow and she includes a special section that gives three different approaches to heel and toe construction. Each pattern contains sizing for children, women, and men, plus the book is packed with technique tips and information on selecting yarn and needles.
