The book, Learn To Crochet Socks for the Family, has everything you will ever need to know to make a pair of socks, and even to adjust patterns to fit the exact needs of your sock size. It starts by explaining the best way to get your gauge, which is very important when making something like a sock that needs to fit pretty precisely.
It explains what parts make up a sock, how to customize those parts, and it even has sizing charts to help you in the event you are making socks to send to someone and can’t get exact measurements. I really love that it explains a basic way to make socks from either the toe, up or from the top, down.
Once you have processed all of that great information and even tried a few steps, you will find that they have included fifteen sock and slipper sock patterns for men, women and children! This really is the best starting point for sock making that I have seen.
I have even started a pair of my own, and found that, so far, it is going much more smoothly than my knitting attempt. So far, I have the toe box all done! If you are looking to start making socks, maybe you tried knitting too and found it too hard, or maybe your just want to give it a go for the first time, Learn To Crochet Socks for the Family is an awesome place to start!
