Modern Daily Knitting Field Guide No. 11 Wanderlust
Consider this the only book of sock patterns you’ll ever need. After making more than 100 pairs, Wendy Bernard knows a ton about the construction of socks – and she knows what we don’t need to know, as we begin our sock-making adventure.
Like a sculptor honing away all the excess, she distills her deep knowledge into everything you need to know, and nothing that you don’t.
These are sock designs that let you begin at the toe or the cuff. You can work a pattern all over the sock, in a panel down the front, or – our favourite when the yarn is wild – a perfectly simple stockinette sock.
Toe-up or cuff-down, with a baker’s dozen of stitch patterns that will give you plenty of beautiful, distinctive designs for every mile of your journey.
Sock knitters know that socks tend to beget more socks. The more you make, the more ideas you have for the next pair. This Field Guide makes it incredibly easy to scheme up your next pair of socks—even as you crank away on your current pair.
Nothing fussy, nothing hard – Field Guide No. 11: Wanderlust is portable joy to take with you on whatever journey you have planned.
Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guides are little books that explore the big world of knitting, with patterns and stories to inspire the curious knitter.
Each book contains a code to allow you to add a copy to your library on Ravelry. It is not possible to add this automatically from our checkout.
