The Sock Journal is an encore collection of twelve all-new monthly-themed sock knitting patterns presented in the tradition of The Sock Calendar book series.
There's something for everyone, in sizes ranging from newborn to adult extra-large. The designs feature myriad different styles and techniques. All patterns are supported by clearly-written, generously-illustrated instructions, making these socks a delight for the beginner to knit, as well as offering inspiration and flexibility for the experienced knitter.
