Country Weekend Socks

25 Classic Patterns

Häftad Engelska, 2010-09-25

Slutsåld

Country Weekend Socks presents 25 unique designs knitted in sumptuous wool and cotton yarns. The rich textures and soft natural colourways take their cue from the coastline and countryside - rolling hills, woodland paths, autumn leaves, stone walls, heather, fallen logs, fishing boats, sand dunes, driftwood and beach pebbles. Virtually any stitch pattern can be adapted to socks, and the ones featured in Country Weekend Socks hail from all over the UK. Patterns include multicoloured designs from Fair Isle; intricate lace knitting and openwork from the Shetlands; textured ganseys from Cornwall, the east coast of England and the Western Isles of Scotland; and chunky cable and Aran patterns from the Isle of Aran. In Country Weekend Socks, traditional patterns have been reinterpreted by a number of leading designer-knitters, including Sasha Kagan, Jamie and Jessie Seaton, Rita Taylor, Sue Turton and Margaret MacInnes. Most of the socks are knitted on four double-pointed needles or circular needles from the top down; others are knitted from the toe up; while an intarsia design is knitted on two needles, with a seam up the back. With both long and short styles in wool and cotton, Country Weekend Socks has patterns for every occasion - to wear with sturdy walking boots, classic tweeds, light summer dresses and cosy pyjamas. The book' s beautiful photographs and illustrations, and clear step-by-step instructions make it an absolutely indispensable guide to this key aspect of traditional British knitwear.
