Inspired by nature and the treasures of ancient cultures, this project book contains 24 patterns for making beautiful socks. Proving that socks can be far more than everyday footwear, Edelgard Janssen and Ute Eismann have incorporated flowers, animals, fish, stars, snow crystals, and other graphics into their stranded knit designs. Basic instructions, knitting techniques, and rich illustrations and diagrams ensure that beginners and advanced knitters alike can enjoy the process of creating these clever socks.

About the Authors

Edelgard Janssen is an avid crafter and lifelong church musician, and the mother of four children. Ute Eismann is a professional interpreter and translator with a passion for crafts, and the mother of three children. Both authors see designing and writing instructions as a challenging process, as well as a way to create beautiful socks. They have participated in several art exhibits and hope that Sock Art will inspire many other knitters to explore color and create artful socks.
