Knit. Sock. Love. by Cookie A.

Nineteen patterns ranging from simply chic to astonishingly intricate are arranged into three sections. In Columns, Cookie looks at the relationship between adjacent columns within vertical patterns and how they interact with one another. The section on Tassellations combines a variety of shapes into geometric outlines with surprisingly organic results. And the last section, Diagonals, will take you off the standard rectangular grid into curves, intersections and travelling components that swirl around the foot. These categorizations introduce a new vocabulary for classifying and understanding patterns. Among the projects are Pointelle, a pattern which features diagonal lace lines over an arrowhead lace background, and Wedge, an ingenious use of garter stitch short rows and stockinette bands that will have you marvelling at its simplicity. These rich and seemingly complex patterns are broken down step by step into bite-size components that are easy to digest. Illustrations, diagrams and charts accompany each project, offering an invaluable guide for visual knitters.
