Knitting Vintage Socks: New Twists on Classic Patterns

Knitting Vintage Socks: New Twists on Classic Patterns by Nancy Bush

Everything old is new again, and this collection of vintage sock patterns mines Weldon's Practical Needlework, a compilation of “newsletters” published more than 100 years ago, for some of the best. Twenty-three classic patterns are updated here for modern knitters with the inclusion of gauges, contemporary yarns, and modern methods and sizes. Filled with fascinating household and historic tidbits from the era, along with little-known tips like an unconventional way to shape a heel, this historical and gracefully written book evokes a more genteel time while presenting a bevy of colorful socks not seen for nearly a hundred years. Intended for knitters of all levels, this walk down memory lane revives some very classic patterns that may have been gone but are not forgotten. 120 pages, enclosed spiral-bound hardcover
