Free Project from The Knitter's Book of Socks by Clara Parkes
It seems the Indian summer has finally ended across the East coast and autumn is officially upon us. Time to dust off the old boots. But before you slip your feet back into those boots, make sure you’re equipped with proper socks!
This is where knitting expert and bestselling author Clara Parkes comes in with her brand new book, The Knitter’s Book of Socks. In this third book of her popular The Knitter’s Book of. . . series, Clara shows knitters how to create the perfect pair of socks and offers a carefully curated collection of 20 fresh, original, yarn-appropriate patterns. She even breaks down the three specific demands of sock knitting: elasticity, abrasion resistance, and moisture management, and thoroughly explains how fibers, yarns, and stitches can be manipulated to meet those three needs.
To guide you on your sock-knitting journey, we’re offering a pattern for the Stepping-Stones socks from The Knitter’s Book of Socks. With the help of Clara Parkes and CrafterNews, you’ll be boot-ready in no time!
