A new and inventive technique to knit socks with just two needles. So if knitting in the round is not for you...Alice Curtis has come up with an alternative. With 20 original designs you can "Knit Your Socks on Straight".
The book is in a spiral format. This makes using the pattern so much easier when the book can lie flat. Socks are worked from the cuff down and use one of two heel methods (round and short-row). The seam to turn the sock from flat to round blends nicely into the design. Don't worry, Alice places the seam so as not to encumber the wearing of the sock. Her plentiful photographs will help to make the beginner knitter feel comfortable knitting with this technique.
You will find the results attractive. There are patterns for children and adults from plan and cabled to 'Moccasocks' and 'Flip-Flops in February'. If you have hesitated in the past about knitting in the round...hesitate no more. You will find out why knitting socks is the most popular of knitting projects. Now you too can join the group, thanks to Alice.
