Sock Science is an 8 page tutorial with labelled photos and thorough explanations to guide you through your first sock knitting experience.

This top-down sock pattern now includes 8 sizes, from baby to large man. It can be worked in stocking stitch, but it also includes options for several ribbing and texture patterns and 2 heel flap patterns. Instructions include how to make adjustments to keep the top of the foot and the gussets symmetrical if you choose to carry these patterns over the top of the foot.

To help you decide on required length for someone else’s sock, foot lengths for sizes from toddler to large man are included.

Clear instructions explain the logic of sock construction, including grafting/Kitchener stitch, and choosing the correct size. The mystery of sock knitting is solved!
