So many sock patterns are written as if one size fits all. But anyone who has larger feet and legs knows better.
In this ingenious book, designer Andi Smith walks the bigger-footed among us through the steps of properly measuring our feet and legs, assessing the toe and heel shapes that fit us best, and adapting patterns to suit our shape. All this, plus 12 gorgeous sock patterns, each with instructions for modifying to your foot and for knitting top-down or toe-up.
Advance praise for Big Foot Knits (from the foreword):
"In this book, Andi Smith calls bullshit on the average sock pattern. She stands up and tells us why most sock patterns don't fit most feet. She asks you to do for your feet what you do for the rest of your body: measure and customize, so that the socks you knit really fit you. You are a knitter, you have the skills, and Andi gives you the tools. This book acknowledges the uniqueness of each foot and celebrates it. We knit both to express and comfort ourselves, and having socks that fit exactly honors our skill, our bodies, and our knitterly hearts."
