Foolproof techniques, developed and perfected by designer Donna Druchnas, are the key to handknit socks that fit well and look great. Take precise measurements--good fit depends on ankle and foot circumference--adjust for stretchiness, choose the correct needles, and have fun with sock yarns!

With chapters on cuff-down and toe-up methods and information on heel and toe variations, this is the handy little resource every avid sock knitter will love.
