BK-Knitted Socks: 20 Gorgeous Patterns Inspired by Places Around the World
Grab your knitting needles and create 20 pairs of socks inspired by far-flung places around the globe!
Join Niina Laitinen on a journey around the world through gorgeous new knitting patterns.
This book contains 20 sock patterns inspired by places and cities around the world, drawing on ancient stories, memorable sights and fond memories of the author's own travels.
See the bright lights of Shanghai, enjoy the cherry blossom festival in Japan and experience the exhilarating cold of Antarctica. On the soft grass of the Scottish moors, spot a glistening dewdrop, while in Paris, sit down over a cup of coffee as you gaze at the Eiffel Tower. The sun setting against the Golden Gate Bridge, the precipitous landscape in which Germany’s castles are set and the parks of Amsterdam with their thousands of tulips appear before your eyes as you leaf through the pages of this book and knit its beautiful sock designs.
Laitinen has designed the patterns to be easy to knit, in her trademark familiar style. The instructions are clear, there are lots of charts and the photos are wonderfully evocative. Some instructions are written for more than one size, and others can be adapted using the instructions.
Wherever you are, you can be sure to have the world at your feet!
