There’s nothing quite like the lush, cosy feeling of handknitted socks! Quick and satisfying to make, small and portable, socks remain one of the most frequently handknit items today.
Following the wonderfully successful Knit How, our essential beginners knitting book, and our pullover compendium Ready Set Raglan, Pom Pom brings you Ready Set Socks, an exploration of sock designs for new and advanced knitters alike.
A collaboration with legendary sock maven Rachel Coopey, Ready Set Socks is our ultimate guide to sock-making! Get ready to experiment, discover the magic that is turning a heel, and become a seasoned sock knitter.
The book includes ten unique patterns in both 4-ply / fingering and DK-weight versions. From simple and speedy stocking and ribbed socks, to fancy mosaic knitting colour combinations, you’ll be sure to find your perfect pair with this compendium of patterns to come back to again and again.
Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly that presents knitting, crochet, and craft in the modern, beautiful, and meaningful way we’ve always known it should be. Mainly conceived as a collection of patterns complemented by thoughtful writing and useful tutorials, we also celebrate the joy of making, hopefully without taking ourselves too seriously!
