Coop Knits Socks Volume 2 in the shop!



This is the 2nd printed collection of Rachel’s original sock designs for both men and women (yes there are hairy legs featured in this book!).

Clearly written (including large scale charts), these patterns are beautifully photographed too!  There are step  by step tutorials for techniques such as kitchener stitch and afterthought heels.

These designs incorporate a variety of skills, including cabling, grafting, lace and twisted stitches, providing a great opportunity to try out new techniques on a small scale!  This book also includes a basic top down sock for beginners.

There are 12 designs and each book comes with a digital download code too!

Looking for yarns to show off these great stitch patterns?  You'll need a solid or semi solid shaded yarn...

How about Lang Jawoll, Artesano Definition or Vivacious 4ply?

We have copies of Rachel's two other books in the shop,  as well as Knit Generation and Vivacious Vol 1 which features several of her designs...
