This book describes a new architecture for hand-knitted socks which enables reinforcement, cushioning, and easy replacement of the full sole, as well as making stitch patterns merge and diverge in intriguing new ways. The eighteen patterns, most for three sizes (S, M, L), in this book will take your sock knitting in a new direction, literally! Instead of the conventional toe-up or top-down methods, you can now simply knit out from the middle of the sole, up over the foot and on up the leg, with no breaks for the heel and no stitches to pick up. You will view your sock toes in a whole new way when you knit from the ground up! Six knitting techniques represented: * Stockinette stitch * Purl-knit textures * Slip stitches * Stranded color knitting * Traveling stitch (1-over-1 crosses) * Lace
