The new, revised edition of Magnificent Mittens & Socks includes directions for working socks. Anna's toe-up, free-sole sock design works with all those beautiful color patterns: stranded patterning on the top of the foot and a reinforced sole. This practical approach avoids the inelasticity of most stranded, color-patterned socks and solves the problem of too much work for too little wear. Now your socks can be as magnificent as your mittens!
This title includes fully illustrated, step-by-step instructions for the basic mitten method & for 2-color knitting, 42 charted mittens, interchangeable cuff charts, 13 edge finishes for cuffs, 7 embellishments to add color & texture, luxurious linings, dye recipes for mitten colors, & outline charts for designing your own mittens.
With complete instructions for 42 fully charted mitten designs, this guide uses geometric color patterns, sophisticated colors, occasional embellishments and embroidery, and simple yet effective edgings and cuffs to make vibrant, warm mittens. This knitters' essential includes seven embellishments and 13 cuff designs that add color and texture to homemade mittens. Notes, photos, and comments throughout illustrate how to add hand-knit or machine-knit linings and reveal which dyes and kits to use for those who wish to exactly reproduce the mittens featured.
