Recommends it for: anyone who's ready to move beyond the basic sock
Sorry, Ann Budd, but I think Charlene Schurch may have superseded you as the High Goddess of Sock Knitting. This book not only describes in very clear terms and photos how to knit a basic sock, but it also shows you more variations (toe-up, various heels, two circulars, multiple patterns) than you could possibly ever knit. The book is beautifully and amply illustrated. Kneel before the Schurch.
A must read for sock knitters whose feet do not fit traditional "one size fits all" knitting patterns. The treasure trove of this book is the multiple pages of charts the author has that help you adapt ANY sock pattern to YOUR foot. Just find gauge on one side of the graph, your foot size on the other and where the two meet you know how many stitches to cast on and how to adapt the pattern.

This book, and the first one, both give several patterns with varying numbers of stitch repeats that can be combined to make really neat socks. Plus, it gives detailed charts to determine how many stitches should be cast on and how long the foot should be based upon foot size. Great resource for any sock knitter to have in their library.
The BEST sock book! Lots of stitch and color patterns, lots of heel and toe options. Lots of beautiful socks. Top-down or toe-up for every pattern. All the numbers crunched so you could knit any sock in the world in YOUR size and gauge.
