Take your sock knitting off the charts! Cookie A., pioneer of the unconventional sock - think traveling stitches, mirrored pairs, twists on the heel, cables and lace - shares her secrets for making rule-breaking socks in Sock Innovation. Even if you haven't been bitten by the sock bug, you will find fascinating technique information!
Sock Innovation aims to increase the skills of any sock knitter by exploring design and advanced stitch manipulation. Fueled by Cookie's unique approach, you'll be able to make modifications to suit your needs and aesthetics (and not just in sock patterns). Sock Innovation goes beyond the basic sock and explores complex stitchery, treating the sock as a knitted canvas where elements are strategically and intentionally placed.
Cookie guides you through the details of her design process, which include:
Choosing a stitch pattern to adapting it to be worked in the round, turned upside-down and inside-out, widened or narrowed Stitch manipulations covered in detail including resizing, texture modification, and converting between flat and in-the-round Plus, clear and thorough inventive instructions, accompanied by photographs and illustrations, so you'll learn to invent your own socks with unique details
In addition to a thorough exploration of her own techniques, Cookie presents 15 original new designs with floral lace patterns, angular geometric shapes, and unusual cables. Inspired by women and men among her friends and family, these socks display an incredible range of style and complexity, from sweet and simple to delightfully imaginative.
